1. Eat well


Put simply, your body is an engine. And like any engine it needs the right type of fuel to burn so you can exercise at full capacity.

Here’s the thing. Health food isn’t complicated. In fact, it’s easy to eat well, and what’s more stay inside your price range.

Fit Men Cook puts the emphasis on budget as well as great taste. It’s a flexible app that becomes your best friend in the fight against flab.

Their recipes can be prepared in bulk, meaning you have cheap food through the week. It even does the maths for you if you want to double or treble your portions.

2. Make time


Exercise takes a lot of discipline. Taking time out of a busy schedule to do it is a whole other ball game.

The amusingly-named app Planny is all to do with… well, “to do”! It’s the ultimate list maker, and has you following all your daily tasks through to the end.

Everything you need to get done in a day is covered, from finishing an essay to hoovering the carpet. The app is clearly laid out and easy to get to grips with.

You’ll never miss one of those all-important exercise sessions again. You probably wouldn’t mind avoiding a workout of course, but Planny keeps you on the right track!

3. Burn up


When you start exercising, you may feel daunted at the time it takes. You really have to work at it, and sometimes you won’t feel up to the challenge.

Want to know a secret? You don’t have to spend hours sweating your life away to achieve that taut physique.
