But a new 99-cent application can help you keep track of all the people you encounter. Whenever you meet a new person, you just pull up the app, enter the new name and assign it a category ("gym," "work," "soccer game," etc.) to help you remember the context. You can also type in a few other helpful details.
If you want a visual cue, you can take a picture of the person and upload it to the application. You can even create your very own "A List" of names you need to remember frequently.
The holiday season is nothing if not delicious. But while you may want to let loose and enjoy all those home-baked goods, you may not want to totally let yourself go.
The Lose It! app is just one of several smartphone apps that can help you enjoy the holidays without derailing a diet.
But losing weight can be made a little easier with a free iPhone app from the developers at FitNow, Inc.
The free app for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch is a calorie counter that helps you create a personalized calorie budget and track your progress.
If you want to lose a few pounds to fit into a special New Year's Eve outfit, the app can help you get there. If you just want to keep your weight constant through the holiday feeding frenzy, it can do that too. Once you've set your weight loss goals, you enter your daily food intake and exercise to make sure you're not exceeding your daily limit.
The app also includes a comprehensive database with the caloric values for thousands of food items, including meals on fast food and chain restaurant menus.
