Consumer and Lifestyle App Reviews (Diabetes, Gluten-Free, and Weight Loss Management)

From the Web page of the American Dietetic Association

Thousands of diet and nutrition apps are available for phones and tablets… so many, in fact, that there are apps to find apps. So when searching for the right apps to help you safely manage your health, don’t make your selection based on the same criteria used to rate Angry Birds. Understand which apps are helpful and based on fact, not fad. Turn to the food and nutrition experts—registered dietitians—for science-based reviews of the most popular apps on the market.

Three Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics spokespeople have reviewed top-rated, free iPhone apps for those looking to lose weight, manage their diabetes or eat gluten-free:

  • Marisa Moore, MBA, RD, LD, reviews the 10 top-rated free iPhone apps for managing diabetes.
  • Jessica Crandall, RD, CDE, reviews the 10 top-rated free iPhone apps for gluten-free eating.
  • Sarah Krieger, MPH, RD, LDN, reviews the 10 top-rated free iPhone apps for weight management.

Ratings are on a scale of 1 to 5 stars.
