Lose Weight Using Samsung S Health On Your Galaxy Smartphone
Edited by Grimm, Margiebell, Eng, Jen M
Hi, you are watching VisiHow and today we are going to show you how to use the Samsung S Health application to check out what you eat, and lose a little bit of weight hopefully in the process. So what we're going to do is tap the right hand button here.
That going to open up our phone to the locked screen.
Do your pattern, PIN, or whatever it is you do to open your phone. In my case, it is just a swipe.
Then you are going to go on to apps, at the bottom right hand side.
Just tap on your apps button.
Once the apps button is open, find the green circle that is S Health.
We're going to tap on that green circle with the little running person one time.
It's going to open up S Health.
There you can see awesome me with my orange hairdo because I do love orange hair.
We are going to tap on this menu up on the right hand side.
We can click on main screen.
That will give us the main screen and as you can see I've burned a massive 3 calories so far since I got this setup.
And we are going to click on food, the food fork, and knife icon down here. Tap on that one time.
This is going to show you something really cool.
Now, first of all, we've got a calorie goal here. Mine is 3057 calories, which is just ridiculous.
You can change that.
Daily calorie goals.
You can set that to whatever you feel you need it to be.
This is the calorie intake, this is the calorie burned, etc, etc.
For whatever reason, S Health thinks that because I have a lot of exercise going on, that I need to have a lot of calories going into me.
I'm going to hit cancel.
I don't think I need that many calories.
But, you know, S Health apparently wants me to be pretty fat. I've got breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks all lined up which is fantastic.
Anyway, let's start with breakfast.
We'll calculate my basic breakfast, and we'll give you an example of how this works. Now, it's important to remember that your breakfast may be a little bit different than mine. One of the things that has always stopped me from using any kind of weight loss application is the fact that they are just impossible. I mean how many calories are in a latte? Maybe I go to Starbucks today and I get a McDonald's coffee the next day. It's just not something that I want to mess with. So I don't use these things. This one is brilliant, however. Let's click on breakfast.
It's going to load in.
OK, let's start off with breakfast, which is the first thing I do in the morning. Look at that, alcohol at the top of the list, that's not cool. Beer, these are not really what I would call breakfast drinks, but I guess some people may have them. If you do, well the stuff is here. Coffee, well, I confess to making myself lattes.
So, as I was saying, I'm just going to click my latte.
That is what I have, I have a latte every day, a warm latte.
The next thing I am going to do, I am going to click on done.
Alright, I don't need to add a food picture, I don't need to add notes.
I could if I wanted to.
I can check on the nutritional information.
Fantastic, 135 calories.
Honestly, I'm not too worried about any of that stuff. I just want to make sure that I understand what I have. Now, let's add some more breakfast stuff. What else do I have? Well, I do try to be a little bit fresh if you will, and I try to make myself some juice. So here we go, juice.
Orange juice, 45 calories per hundred grams.
I'd say I probably have about 200 grams.
So, let's see, well here we go.
1 cup, there we go. So 1 cup of juice. More or less, 200 grams. OK, done.
And now I've got my breakfast, I've got 250 calories.
Let's save that.
And that gets us back here to breakfast.
Now, let's add some more stuff here.
What else do I eat?
I eat eggs. I love my eggs. I eat the entire egg and I fry them.
So, fried eggs.
How many fried eggs do I have? Well, I usually make 2 or 3 eggs over easy. We've actually got a video on how to fry eggs. If you want to see how they get fried. I'm going to go with the big eggs, I like myself some big, fried eggs.
I have large eggs, and honestly, I have 3.
That's a lot, I know.
But, my heart is still ticking. So, we're good to go there. I don't even want a picture of my breakfast, I know what it looks like. So that's 523 calories of my 3000 calorie goal. If I had a smaller calorie goal, then that would be less food.
I can tap on my little bar graph here.
And see how far up the list I am. For today's things.
That, my friends, is how you use the food menu for your Samsung Galaxy S Health, and this will help you track your food quickly and easily.
Click back into the food here.
Let's say you go out for lunch.
Fast food, there's some fast food. What are we going to have? We're going to have a burger.
Which kind of burger are we going to have?
A large cheeseburger.
Nice and easy, there, OK?
609 calories right there. That might not be exactly how many calories the large cheeseburger is, but it is about 609 calories, maximum 700. You might get one that is a little bit less. At any rate, that's your cheeseburger.
You can even take a picture of it if you want to.
And there you go, you've got your calories.
More calories in my cheeseburger than in my whole entire breakfast. Latte and 3 fried eggs and butter.
Anyway, that is what you do to get yourself set throughout the day.
So, thank-you for using VisiHow, thanks for watching our video. Make sure you check back for the rest of our series on how to use the Samsung Galaxy S Health features. Thanks much, and have a great day.
