Pocket PC Calorie Counters

So I’m finally going to get serious about losing weight. My basic approach is going to be to burn more calories than I consume each day. To do that, I need to know how many calories I’m consuming, and how many I’m burning.

Of course, there are dozens of books or other methods for going about this problem. But I’m a geek. I’m going to find some Pocket PC software that will do what I need.

I’ve been vaguely aware of fitness-type software for the Pocket PC, but I’ve never really looked seriously at any of them. I’m going to start at Handango.com and see what they have. My main needs are to be able to enter food items I eat, and be able to total up the calories they contain. I’m not going to worry about carbs, or any other “fad” diet concerns, but rather stick to what my doctor told me – low fat, low cholesterol, burn more calories than you consume.

So, does anyone have any recommendations, or experiences with this kind of software? Post a comment below if you do – I’d love to hear what you think.

  1. Ha! It only took 6.5 years from this post to start doing this seriously. I started using Lose It! on my iPhone on the first of 2011. Post about my progress forthcoming.
