The Best Food Tracking Apps

Whether you're trying to lose weight, or maybe put weight on, a food tracking app can be a valuable resource. While I am not a gym bunny (I pay but rarely go!) I do like to keep track and see how many calories I am consuming otherwise I will just go on daily splurges of eating rubbish all the time!
