WHAT IS FITNESS PAL
MyFitnessPal is a free smartphone app and website that tracks diet and exercise to determine optimal nutrients and caloric intake for users goals
The user may enter the name of the food or scan the barcode to find the item in a large database of about 2 million foods or may select foods from a list of most frequently eaten foods.
Dietitian Michelle Eckhart says a bonus for dieters using such tools is that “numbers don’t lie, and I think when people can really see the reality — the numbers — it helps them to adjust their behaviors more quickly.
The same food item may contain several variation of the caloric count possibly depending on which country the food item was purchased.
LOSE WEIGHT IN THE HEALTHY WAY
We believe — and medical studies prove — that the best way to lose weight and keep it off forever is to simply keep track of the foods you eat. Gimmicky machines and fad diets don’t work, so we designed a free website and mobile apps that make calorie counting and food tracking easy.
WHY IT INSPIRES?
It inspires me in keeping track on what and how much calories contain in my meals, and maintaining my health because of knowing nutrition contained in my food. Also by sharing it with others it helps to motivate myself and everybody when seeing other successful stories shared by others on how the maintain their health and weight, and getting tips from each other.
