On September 22, 2018

Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of rum. There was a time when I was a young lad that I was overweight. Aye! I was in high school and I was fond of eating a lot of foods. Har, har, har! When I went to college, me saw lots of pretty girls but me didn’t have the confidence to approach them because of me appearance. This bucko then decided to lose weight and that’s when I learned about calorie counting. Me made healthy food choices and counted the calories me took. I had to read a book to find the calories of each food me took as there was no Internet back then. But now, there are apps that make it convenient like the one that I will share with ye. It’s called Calories in Food by Alexey Korobov.

This app is very basic. When you open it, the main page will show you the list of food categories that include dairy, poultry, spices, etc. There’s also a picture of different foods on top that has a vibrant color. There are advertisements at the bottom of the page, although there is an option to hide them for free. However, when you close the app and open it again, the ads will appear again, so you have to hide them again.
