Mevo – Lose Weight the Fun Way
Let’s face it…we’ve all been at that place where we just don’t like what we see, and I’m not talking about a bad movie. You’ve been binging on wings and gulping down pop like there’s no tomorrow, because you look and feel great and have an exercise routine in place that got you there.
Well, reality hits hard. Sometimes, that same old exercise routine has to grow with you, and that’s when you can use a helping hand. Sure, there are lots of apps out there that let you type in your goal weight, date and more, but Mevo – Weight Loss and Fitness app is different. Mevo is with you every step of the way, in different ways. It’s a trainer, coach, media outlet and more, so you get what you need on all fronts to stay on the path to healthy.
First off, Mevo connects you at several levels. It connects you with others who are in the same boat as you, so you gain the support you need to forge ahead and not stray. Thinking of heading over to the local yogurt place tonight? Not. Your friends on Mevo won’t let you make that mistake.
The second connect is to information. Recipes, nutritional educations, and more. In general, we all know what healthy looks like, but it can be daunting. Mevo offers up options that fit your lifestyle and palate.
The third connect is to your stats. Walk, run, bike, yoga, pilates – whatever you do, you log it. Every movement counts. Mevo makes it so easy to log each activity you engage in. Walks and runs count automatically, so you get bang for your buck.
Calories and intake you will have to enter, of course, but the app makes it so easy with a barcode scanner, so you can get an instant quote on the value of what you are about to eat.
Again, this all gets logged into your database and becomes a part of the information that Mevo will use to help guide you towards your goal.
The app is so easy to use. The download is free and the interface is intuitive. There are tons of recipes to choose from based on what you like, how much time you have, and dietary restrictions. This area of the app is extremely easy to navigate and updates every so often, so there is no chance of getting bored with the selections. You can even tag favorites so you can get to them fast. What I really liked about this app is that it made meal planning so easy, this became one less dreaded chore, and more of a fun activity.
Workouts and exercise routines are abundant and fit your schedule. You simply type in your goals and expectations, and the app becomes your personal coach, helping you determine when to workout, which workout to use and you are on your way.
The fun part is the area of the app that offers quizzes and games. This keeps things lighthearted and engaging, instead of once more goal you need to achieve.
I would like to see more connectivity to a variety of devices such as Jawbone Up. This will widen the scope of accessibility to many more users, making the community larger and connectivity stronger.
I have found myself sticking to a better exercise regimen and eating a little better after using Mevo. I hope that you find the same success, as well.
