Study: Using app to track diet, exercise during pregnancy led to better outcomes



CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A smartphone app could help improve the health of pregnant women.

A study in Frontiers in Endocrinology found that what they call continuous behavioral lifestyle intervention in pregnancy, assisted by a smartphone app, boosted both nutrition and exercise. Not only did women move more, they said they had more motivation to do more.

The findings of this study are based on data from 565 pregnant women who were overweight and obese. Those who used the app had better eating habits and consumed fewer calories from sugar, fat and salt compared to those who did not.


The app that was used was built as part of this study to assess the result, but it really shows you the power of accountability.

The authors of this study say this is more proof that monitoring intake leads to good outcomes for exercise and diet, and all of us, pregnant or not, might benefit if we are trying to improve our health.
