Lose weight with your iPhone

If you own an iPhone (or iPod Touch), this simple program will help you maintain or lose weight, if that is your goal. Even if you don’t own one of these devices, the basic approach of this program may give you some good ideas. David Pogue of the New York Times writes:

Lose It! This beautifully designed weight-loss app has an astounding number of followers, if the outpouring of enthusiasm on Twitter is any indication. You tap to record everything you eat. It’s actually kind of fun, because the program contains every food item you can imagine, including brand-name packaged food and restaurant-chain menus. For each one, the app lists the complete nutritional information.

You also indicate what exercise you get each day, using a similarly complete list of activities. Finally, you tap in your weight each day. Probably because the app focuses you so well on staying true to your goals, its fans say it truly works. (Free)
