  • Thinking About Using A Weight Loss App? Here's What You Should Consider

    Weight loss apps were one of the first apps to start selling when smartphones came on the market. Today, there are literally thousands of them available. However, they vary so much in quality, price, and focus that it can be difficult to pick the best one for you. Nutritionist Samantha Cassetty says the best apps support a variety of healthy foods, in balanced amounts, that are right for your needs. Free apps, like Lose It!, can help you track your food intake. However, Cassetty says they're unlikely to lead to any real, lasting weight loss. Instead, she suggests focusing on developing healthy habits, like regular exercise and increasing the number of fruits and vegetables in your diet. According to Business Insider, the apps Noom, Weight Watchers, My Fitness Pal, and the free MyNetDiary do a great job at helping you meet some or all of these goals.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
