After the Christmas festivities have finally faded away and we start looking forward to 365 days of hard work and the odd bit of fun, we usually take a step back and survey the scene. About 40 percent of adults will then decide to go on a diet in order to experience a better year than the last. But over 90% of these will fall way before the first hurdle and pretty much go back to their old ways. The problem with finding a great diet that suits your lifestyle is very common, so why do we even bother? Some of the fad diets that you read about in the papers are pretty much nothing more than hot air with a few celebrity names thrown into the mix. So with this in mind, we have gleaned 3 very original Apps from the iOS Market and want you good people to try once more.

Please check out the reviews and we really do hope that one of them appeals to you enough to press that download option.
