Popular calorie-counting apps such as My Fitness Pal and Lose It! really do help you slim, report researchers at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. In their study, dieters using these apps consumed 612 fewer calories per day than those who used traditional paper journals. “Mobile apps make it easier to record things in the moment,” explains study author Brie Turner-McGrievy, Ph.D. “You can view progress over time, add foods easily and lean on friends for support.” If you don’t have a smartphone or tablet, try one of the study-tested Web versions at *MyFitnessPal.com *or ** MyFoodDiary.com.**
