Livescape

As Fitness Month continues here at Windows Phone Central and all of the Mobile Nations sites, we turn our sites on apps to help with our diet. While exercise is a key element of staying fit, so is what we consume during the day. You defeat the purpose of exercise with poor eating habits.

This week's Fitness App Roundup will concentrate on a collection of top rated Windows Phone apps designed to help you count your calories and monitor what foods you take in during the week. There's also an app that will find you recipes based on the ingredients you prefer while avoiding those you are allergic to.

We'll close things out with a Reader's Poll to let you decide which of these diet apps are tops. If we've missed your favorite app, feel free to sound off below in the comments.

As Fitness Month fades away into the distant horizon, we've looked at apps throughout the month that are focused on helping us get into shape, eat right, get a good night's sleep and basically live a healthier life.

This week's roundup focuses on apps that tackle a wide range of fitness topics from diet to exercise to health related issues. These three apps seem to be more comprehensive than other fitness apps and while the roundup may seem to be a little on the thin side, these three apps cover a lot of territory.

As always, if you have a favorite health or fitness Windows Phone app that you'd like to recommend, sound off in the comments below.

Windows Phone Central's Roundup of Apps for the Ladies

While we have touched upon Windows Phone apps that are focused more towards our female audience from time to time, we thought a Roundup of app's for the ladies in the audience was in order.

Granted a lot of our Windows Phone apps appeal to both the men and women in the audience but there are a large selection of apps that cater primarily to the girls. From health apps focuses on women's needs to shopping apps we rustled up a small collection of apps that might appeal to the women Windows Phone users.

As with any roundup, we may have overlooked a particular title that you are rather fond of. This oversight shouldn't reflect poorly on that title, it's just a matter of time and limited space. If we've miss an app, feel free to share your recommendation in the comments.
