Keto diet apps can be a godsend to anyone following the eating plan. As you may be aware, the ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb eating plan that includes very specific restrictions. So it can be tricky for folks who are new to this diet to know what foods are off-limits to them. It can also be stressful for people to calculate whether they went over their daily carb intake. Luckily, the best keto apps out there can help simplify all these rules in a matter of just a few swipes.
One new keto app called KetoDiet ($8.99 for iOs or $6.99 for Android) is the perfect example of technology giving us this much-needed helping hand. As PureWow reports, this clever tool includes more than 300 keto recipes and nutritional information for more than 1 million popular foods. In other words, you can say goodbye to staring at your calculator in the middle of the grocery store while trying to figure out if an item has too many carbs. Much like other great diet apps out there, KetoDiet offers you a chance to keep track of everything you eat in a special digital food planner. But unlike other apps, this one has a specific mission to help you stay on track with your keto meal plan.
The app was created by Martina Slajerova, who is the best-selling author of The Beginner's Keto Diet Cookbook (Amazon, $17.56) and Quick Keto Meals in 30 Minutes or Less (Amazon, $15.46). Boosted by a team of registered dietitians, health pros, and top recipe developers, this app has up-to-date info about the keto diet that you can actually trust.
As if all that weren't awesome enough, you can also use this app to look up popular restaurants and do a quick scan of all the items on the menus. That way, you won't have to guess anymore whether a meal is truly keto — and you won't waste time going to a spot that has no keto options for you. After all, the last thing you want on any diet is to go hungry!
Remember: Always talk to your doctor before trying any new eating plan, especially one as restrictive as keto.
