Easter has come and gone, leaving many of us with either a mountain of chocolate or a pile of empty boxes and a rather enlarged waistline. If you're leaning more towards the latter, don't despair, your mobile device can help you shift that extra egg-weight, with these apps specially designed to give you that extra push...

Fooducate

Fooducate

One of the most comprehensive dieting apps around at the moment, Fooducate looks to go beyond simple calorie counting to help you eat tasty and healthy food. The app grades products by their nutritional value, and will also scan and analyse labels to reveal things manufacturers don't want you to notice, such as excessive sugar, hidden trans fats or harmful additives.

(Free, iOS and Android)

MyFitnessPal

MyFitness Pal

Focusing more on creating a fitness regime to reach a personal target, MyFitnessPal takes your personal statistics and then works out how many calories you can consume each day to hit your target in the timeframe you specify. Each day, you record what you eat and input your activity, which the app then tots ups to calculate your net calorie input. The app also plots your weight loss over time to track your progress, which can also be compared with friends through its large online community.
