Here’s a list of 5 Weight Loss extensions for Google Chrome, which can be used to find help when trying to lose weight. Even though the summer season is drawing to a close so there’s aren’t that many opportunities to show off a well kept body, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably planing ahead and making room for all the great food that’s going to be available during the winter break, holidays and accompanying festivities. Let’s not forget to mention that maintaining weight is also good for your health. Let’s see how can Chrome and its extensions help out.
BMI And Ideal Weight Calculator
Before you start making any plans, first thing that you should probably do is see where exactly you stand with your current weight; in other words, what your body mass index (BMI) is.
BMI And Ideal Weight Calculator is an extensions for Chrome that helps you not only calculate BMI, but it also lets you calculate what your ideal weight should be. You can see it in action on the image above. Note that the numbers you get here should be taken with a grain of salt, and you should consult a physician before starting any major weight loss scheme. BMI and ideal weight values are listed at the top and down below you’re going to find a short analysis of the values.
Weight Loss Calculator
Weight Loss Calculator is another weight loss extension that does calculations, only here instead of calculating the BMI or ideal weight, you can calculate daily calorie requirements to meet your desired weight.
To get the analysis from the image above, you’ll have to type in your age, gender, height, current weight, desired weight and the number of days in which you want to lose the excess weight. After clicking on the calculate button, this extension gives you a textual analysis of your normal daily caloric intake for maintaining weight and another for losing weight.

With Lose It! we start talking about weight loss extensions with a little bit more substance, and by that I of course mean features.
Technically speaking this is a web app, where you’re going to need to setup an account and enter your current details, age, height, weight, just like with previously 2 mentioned weight loss extensions. Lose It! will then do calculations needed for weight loss and it will let you keep track of both consumed calories and also spent calories that you’ve lost by exercising.

Speaking of exercises, you will need to hit the gym if you plan on losing weight and definitely if you plan on gaining muscles.
For some time you might be able to do exercises at home, but you’ll soon outgrow those and will require weights for a proper workout. A workout timer is a must have in your arsenal of weight loss extensions and Workout Timer is a very advanced timer for Chrome that you can use. It lets you setup detailed workout cycles and it has a sound notification for cycle switching.
