I love trying out different apps that can possibly make my life easier and recently I came across “Lose Weight in 30 Days” app in Google Play. As I mentioned in my NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS FOR 2018 post, I really want to lose some weight and this app instantly gained my interest. So I gave it a try to see what it was about.
In the app menu, you can see Training plans, Meal plans, Reports, Reminder, Settings sections and Restart progress button.
On the Training plans screen, you can see your progress and the list of days.
Each day features about 10-minute workout program consisting of 7 exercises on different groups of muscles. Each exercise has a voice guide, a gif showing how to do this exercise, description and a link to a YouTube video on how to do the exercise.
Also, you have a 30-seconds break between each exercise to prepare for the next exercise and rest a bit, which you can skip if you don’t need it. Every fourth day is a rest day when you give your body time to relax.
As we all know, what you eat is super important when you want to lose weight, so I really like that app creators included meal plans. Here you can choose between Standart Diet and Vegetarian diet plans which is also a great feature. You have shopping lists for 5 weeks and everyday menus consisting of breakfast, snack, lunch, and dinner. I don’t really stick to this diet as I have to replace some products (like dairy) but I can say that these meal plans feel balanced and didn’t make me crave for more food on the days when I actually followed them.
In this section, you see your workout history (as you can see, I tend to be a bit lazy from time to time), weight loss tracker, which helps you to see your progress, and your current BMI.
Reminder and Settings
Here you can set reminders which won’t let you forget about a workout, change voice settings, metric units, language options etc.
All in all, I love this app. The only downside is a lot of ads (as you can see on the screenshots) which can be annoying sometimes but can I complain about ads in a free app? Everything else in this app is perfect for me (though I needed some time to get used to the pace of exercises). I use it with two other apps from this developer (basically, the same thing only targeting specific muscle groups and without meal plans) and I actually see the result.
So, here’s my first ever app review. Not sure how it turned out but I hope you liked it! Would love to hear your feedback in the comments!
Till next time!
