Maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall wellness and managing many health conditions. But losing weight and keeping it off can be incredibly challenging.

To help them with this journey, many people turn to apps with the intention of only tracking their daily calorie intake. But while calories certainly play an important role in maintaining a healthy weight, they’re not the only aspect of nutrition to consider.

Portion sizes and macronutrients (think protein, carbohydrates, and fat) are equally as essential when it comes to eating healthy. And they’re just as easily trackable through apps.

To get you started, we’ve rounded up our top picks for shedding pounds, tracking calories, and maintaining your healthy weight. Check out the results below.
