As the new year rolls around, we all know that means it’s time to set some new years resolutions. For many it is a time to start the new year shedding those extra holiday pounds and slimming down for the warmer months.
Here are 5 apps that will help you slim down for the new year and reach those fitness goals.

My Fitness Pal lets people using the app keep track of what they eat using a database of more than 2 million foods. This is a perfect app to use around the holiday season!

This calorie counting app allows users the unique option of logging by voice and offers a 100% editorially curated food database. If you are trying to keep track of your calories you have consumed, give this app a try!
3. Lose It! (FitNow).
Lose It! helps users keep a daily calorie “budget,” track their food choices and exercise minutes, and provides motivation to inspire smart choices. Users can use the Lose It! database to log their food intake and understand how their choices are affecting their weight loss goal. it gives the users motivation to make healthy choices when it comes to eating.
4. My Diet Coach
This app is not a calorie counter like many others. It’s aimed at women more than men due to its nature as a solely-for-motivation app. Through personalized reminders, such as to drink water instead of soda, to prepare healthy meals instead of unhealthy ones, etc., and motivational pictures and slogans, this app drives you to lose those pounds. It supports the users to make smarter choices abuot their eating and diet.
5. BMI Calculator – Ideal Weight
This app is simpler than some others in that it calculates your body fat based on a weight to height ratio. It helps to gauge whether/when you need to lose weight, as opposed to showing you your progress toward losing weight. Either way, it would make a great weight-watching partner to any of the above apps. Try it out!
