The best weight loss apps are those that help you meet your weight loss goals. If you've ever tried to lose weight, you know it’s easier said than done. Many of the best dieting apps provide assistance by helping you gauge meal portions, track calories, and plan your weekly exercise routine.

But even the best diet app can’t actually make you do what you know you need to do. That’s where you’ve got to have some personal resolve to get thing done. Anyone can lose weight, if they just set their mind to it. Half of the battle is in the mind. Staying motivated and working with a support group on a regular basis can make a big difference.

That’s why many of these weight loss apps have an online component where users can interact with each other, providing support and sharing real-life stories of their success. If you can find a buddy online that you can relate to, it can make a world of difference in your motivation level and ultimately, your success.

These apps, selected from the Apple iTunes store for iPhone apps as well as the Google Play app store for Android users, represent the best of the best. Whether you’re looking for just the right calorie counter, a fast food calorie guide, exercise tips or even a fun game that will help you lose weight as you play along - they’re all included here. If you've had experience with these apps, be sure to rank them! If you haven’t, then this list of best weight loss apps can help you find the one that’s just right for you.
