He became interested in health technology when diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2007, and is the author of Trackers: How Technology is Helping Us Monitor and Improve Our Health (Bateman).

Richard MacManus has trialled many health and exercise monitoring apps and explored low fat vs low carbohydrate diets to find what works best for his own body, as he explains to Kim HIll.

During the conversation, Kim and Richard discuss MyFitnessPal, Fitbit, Withings, 23andMe, uBiome and Tictrac.
