Looking to get healthy? Dailyburn for the iPhone helps track the food you eat, your exercise and weight results. Stephanie Chu reviews the app and lets you know if it's worth your time.
As we get older and hopefully wiser, so must our health habits, and this includes tracking your nutrition and physical activity.
Dailyburn allows you to keep a daily log of the food you eat along with serving sizes and more. The app also helps you come up with a fitness plan and a log to see how many calories you've burned over time.
This sounds like a great idea, but is it easy to use and realistic for long-term use?
Review by Stephanie Chu.
Thanks to Reebok for sponsoring the show this week. We got some pairs of their new Zigtech shoes and we've had a chance to cruise around in them for the past few days. These shoes are some of the most technically advanced running and training shoes around. Everything about Zigtech footwear is designed to conserve energy. Traditional energy return is focused on vertical impact and the way your heel hits the ground. Zigtech works to cut down on overall energy use while transferring the energy you do expend back to your forefoot horizontally along the zigs helping propel you forward while reducing wear & tear on your shins.

Don't Download. The problem with one-in-all health apps is that it isn't excellent at any single standalone feature. There are better running and exercise apps, and hopefully there are better nutrition apps.
