The desire to count calories has resulted in a proliferation of calorie counter apps. Many of them go beyond tracking calories to include logging food intake, sleep and exercise routines. Many of these apps are completely free. Eating and exercising properly, in addition to counting calories, is easily achieved by downloading one of these free Android calorie counters.
Calorie Counter – MyFitnessPal
The all-in-one solution to counting calories and ensuring good fitness and nutrition habits
The MyFitnessPal free Android calorie counter is arguably the most popular fitness app. Its reputation has been earned from the results users have achieved after using the app for even as few as seven days.

Food items and exercises can both be added. Add foods with the built-in barcode scanner, and import recipes. You can even quickly add items from restaurant menus. Quite apart from the calculation of the calories in the food you eat, the recipes you save and the meals you plan, MyFitnessPal also calculates the carbs, protein and fat macros in them and other nutrients including vitamins, sugar, fiber, and cholesterol.
Track the water you drink, create personalized meals, and select weight loss, gain or maintenance goals or create calorie and macros goals. Select and log specific strength and/or cardio exercises and track steps.

The many customization features include charting progress, adding photos, and keeping a history of your food intake.
