Despite the popularity of wearables and pedometers, complete programs can offer more for weight loss and maintenance.

Losing weight and maintaining a healthy BMI isn’t as easy as losing keys or even your mind, but when mobile health and fitness tools are incorporated into the mix – as in the case of ShareFit.com – dieters have a far better chance at understanding their personal habits and achieving their health goals.

ShareFit has ensured that the entire program is tablet and smartphone friendly as well as PC accessible.

By doing this, it means that members of the ShareFit program are able to access the information, videos, and tracking tools that they need to be able to keep up with their nutrition and fitness goals, regardless of where they are. Clearly, this goes far beyond the latest typical wearable technology trends, in which tracking and tools are limited. A complete mobile health strategy has been found to be highly effective for people who are working to adopt a more healthful lifestyle and maintain it over the long term.Mobile Health Sharefit

Mobile health studies have shown that smartphones can be a key tool for keeping up the right techniques.

Data from the Pew Internet & American Life project has shown that the ShareFit free diet tracker is on precisely the right track for providing dieters with the program and tools they need to keep up with their efforts and to embrace a more effective and healthful weight loss program. The reason is that its research showed that 17 percent of cell phone using adults in the U.S. use their mobile devices to access health information. Among those who have access to health information on their smartphones, 46 percent do so. Another 27 percent of internet users have gone online to track their diet and fitness activities.

The American Heart Association’s data shows that overweight patients who use diet and fitness tracking in order to obtain feedback about their own habits and behaviors are more likely to stick to a weight loss plan. Research from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine supported this in showing that smartphone based tracking tools helped dieters to lose an average of 15 pounds, which they kept off for at least one year after having lost it.

ShareFit uses mobile devices to make sure that members always have the support and tracking tools they need.

The ShareFit program is compatible with desktop and laptop computers as well as smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. This ensures that, at any given time, regardless of which device is convenient for the member of this free program, he or she is able to access their nutrition log (where they can record what they eat and obtain feedback about calories, proteins, fats, carbs, and nutrients), their fitness log (where they can record their physical activities and obtain feedback about trends and calorie burning).

ShareFit has also taken the step to go above and beyond tracking with its mobile health and fitness tools, as its offerings extend to provide additional assistance including informational articles, exercise videos, and support through helpful user forums. Successes can also be shared over the user’s social media account, which has been found to be highly motivational for weight loss.

    Fitness trackers are what you make of them. If you just wear them around and don’t use them, then they won’t help you. If you track the results they collect and work them into a bigger healthy lifestyle program, then wearables can actually be really handy and motivational. Whatever the program you choose, though, it has to be mobile friendly. Who wants to write stuff down or type it in at a computer all day?

    A free diet tracker program like ShareFit does a lot more than just tracking. I have used a similar program that was fantastic to use over my PC but at the time it didn’t offer a mobile friendly version. It had a very limited app but that didn’t let me comfortably track my food without a lengthy and awkward searching process that just wasn’t great with a touchscreen. I can see that there would be way better advantage with this type of weight loss and fitness tracking. If it’s not ultra-convenient, you just won’t keep it up. So putting it on every device you have can help a lot.
