How a simple app can help you reach your fitness goals

Taking good care of yourself means you can take better care of your family – and Nutracheck can help you with that

Your child’s early years are crucial for their growth and development, so it makes sense to keep an eye on the nutritional value of what they eat and drink. But do you treat yourself with the same care? Eating on the go, skipping meals and focusing on convenience, rather than nutrition, are often part and parcel of being a parent, but it’s also the time when it’s more important than ever for you to be at your best for your young family.

Thankfully, the Nutracheck app makes it super easy to track both the calories and nutrients you’re consuming on your phone or tablet. With its UK database of foods, it’s an especially effective way to achieve a fitness goal – and then maintain it once you reach your target. That’s why it’s trusted by hundreds of thousands of users.

What’s more, Nutracheck allows you to monitor seven key nutrients, so whether you want to ensure you have enough fibre in your diet or you’d like to reduce your sugar intake, you can trust the app to keep you informed about what you’re consuming. And be it salt or saturated fat, Nutracheck can track both – and more. Plus, logging what you’ve had to eat and drink is child’s play, as it takes less than 10 minutes per day.

So, whether you’re aiming to improve your diet or eat for fitness, why not give Nutracheck a try?

Victoria’s story

Nutracheck weight loss: 4st 5lbs

Victoria's before and after photos

After giving birth to her baby boy in December 2018, Victoria was determined to get fit and healthy for the sake of her family.

“I experienced a blood clot in my left leg, which meant I couldn't be active while pregnant, so I put on considerable weight. Now I’m a mum, I want to provide my son with the best care, and that involves me having a healthier, more active lifestyle.”

After downloading the Nutracheck app, Victoria lost 4st 5lbs. She now weighs a little over 10st but lost a large proportion of the weight in less than six months.

“I found Nutracheck in the App Store, saw the great reviews and used the trial period for a week,” she explains. “I loved it! When I lost my first stone it felt amazing. I noticed my clothes loosening and I felt in control of my health.”

After yo-yo dieting for 15 years pre-pregnancy, Victoria knew the cycle of reaching her goal, and then letting things slip. But she says that Nutracheck, paired with a sensible exercise regime, which involves lots of walking with her son, has changed that.

“I found this time a lot easier as I created a more realistic, sustainable plan that I knew I could achieve. With a baby, I knew that going to the gym or extreme regimes would not work, so instead decided to do this gradually and for a long-term result.

“For me, walking every day or every other day has been so important. Now, even when it's raining, I go to the supermarket and walk around to get my steps in and to stay active.”

As part of her regime, Victoria has stuck to three full meals a day, plus snacks – and is still enjoying her favourite treats.

“I've not removed my chocolate from my plan, but I do have smaller bars and don’t have it every day. I have been experimenting with different recipes and my husband and I are really enjoying it.

“The most difficult thing was shifting my mindset; not thinking about losing pounds and seeing this as a lifestyle change. Losing weight is important, but it’s as much about being more active and finding ways to make this sustainable.

"I’m now the lowest weight I’ve been as an adult and feel incredible. Not only have I lost the weight, I have a healthy mind and healthy lifestyle for my family.”
