A while back I had written about the Lose It! app, which is designed to help users count calories and log exercise. A couple days ago I came across this article detailing how users are really benefiting from this app and others like it  (it also mentions Walk n’ Play). In fact, a specialist in Maine has been testing Lose it! with several diabetes patients and in the past three months all 17 of them have lost weight and reduced their blood sugar.

p.s. also check out this great Top 10 List of weight loss and fitness apps from Mashable. Now that summer classes are over, I’m attempting to jumpstart my fitness routine, so hopefully I will have some reviews of these apps coming soon…
