Android/iOS/Windows Phone: Previously mentioned workout app BodBot offers personalised workout plans based on your fitness goals. A new update today now also brings the ability to track your diet, your calories and nutrition, as well as your exercise habits.

The new BodBot will help you track your food intake towards a daily caloric goal, and it will suggest foods to help you get the right nutrients based on the type of goals you have. For example, the app will suggest egg whites, flank steak or salmon to help you get to your daily protein targets, and foods like spinach, broccoli and cabbage to help you get to multiple goals for vitamins and minerals like potassium, iron, calcium and so on. Additionally, the app’s food database makes it easy to search for the foods you’re eating and add them to your daily food diary.

Since we know that keeping a food diary can help people lose weight and watch their eating — even if they do nothing else — it’s a worthwhile addition. Depending on what you tell BodBot you want to do (lose weight, gain muscle, enhance cognitive ability, etc), it will suggest different foods and nutrient levels in your diet for your desired goal. Then it’s just a matter of doing the workouts on the “train” side of the app, and eating well on the “eat” side of the app. Hit the link below to check out the update and grab the latest versions. As always, BodBot is free.
