About MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal is an app designed to help you monitor your fitness and to achieve your exercise goals. MyFitnessPal is one of the top two nutrition apps recommended by dietitians.

In addition to counting calories, MyFitnessPal users can track their water intake and macronutrients, giving them one of the most extensive nutrient databases of the apps analyzed. The app is fully cloud sync enabled with the MyFitnessPal service, so users can log data from their computer or their phone and get access to all of their data, updated as it is inputted in real time.

The app can also track basic exercises, with support for popular trackers such as the Fitbit series and Jawbone UP, and also has compatibility with other fitness apps such as Apple Health.

MyFitnessPal Review

MyFitnessPal  is designed to help you lose, maintain, or gain weight. This calorie counting and exercise tracking app is simple, free, and effective. Once you’ve worked out your daily calorie and nutrition goal, track each meal, snack and fitness activity (it syncs with step counters too), and you’ll have a daily motivator in the palm of your hand.

The app holds data on over two million foods so you can type in the brand and it will work out the nutrients. You can also simply scan the bar code, or manually enter the calories yourself.

An added bonus is that MyFitnessPal can be used in a similar way to Facebook, enabling you to add friends, post updates and take part in forum discussions – all designed to keep you motivated.

As well as being available for both Apple and Android devices, it can also be used on a desktop computer, so you can keep track of your nutrition and exercise goals at work, home or on the move.

With regular reminders if you haven’t used it for a while, the app keeps you accountable for what you put in your mouth – but you do need to keep committed to your logging and I admit that, at times, it can feel like a bit of a chore.

MyFitnessPal has been around for a while, and although there have been imitations, in my opinion it remains the most simple and effective app if you want help to reach your health goals.
