Fitness Apps

My favorite food tracking app is Myfitnesspal.  Want to know why?  Myfitnesspal helps me keep track of how many calories I can consume in a day to help me maintain the weight that I am at.  It also lets me keep track of water that I have consumed during the day.  Myfitnesspal also lets me log workouts in the app.  The best part of Myfitnesspal is that it’s free.  Sure there is a paid version for a few more fancy bells and whistles like:

  1. Ad-free Experience: Access MyFitnessPal on your Android or iOS device, or on the web, and enjoy all of premium’s awesome features without the distraction of banner ads.
  2. VIP Customer Support: Jump to the front of the line when you need help from their world-class customer happiness team.
  3. Premium Content: Get access to exclusive MyFitnessPal dietitian-approved original recipes, meal plans and nutrition tips created by our in-house nutrition and coaching team.
  4. Macronutrients: Displays your carbs, fat, protein and calories
  5. Heart-Healthy: Displays your fat, sodium, cholesterol and calories
  6. Carb-Conscious: Displays your carbs, sugars, fiber and calories
  7. Custom Summary: Create your own dashboard by selecting any three nutrients. Trying to get your iron up? Watching trans fats? Then this option is for you.
  8. Food Analysis: Discover the nutrient breakdown of the foods you eat: Find out which foods are highest in any selected nutrient. One quick glance can tell you which foods will help you cut your sodium intake, for example, or up your fiber.
  9. Macronutrient by gram: Set your macro goals by gram, not just percentage.
  10. Quick add macronutrients: Quick Add isn’t just for calories anymore; you can instantly input grams of fat, protein and carbs.
  11. Control your exercise calories: Now, YOU can decide whether or not to add the calories you burn to your daily goal (and how to allocate those extra macros).
  12. Set different calorie and macro goals for each day of the week: Need more calories on the weekend or extra carbs on training days? No problem. Set different nutrition goals for different days.

I use the free version of Myfitnesspal.  I do not need all of these fancy bells and whistles. But hey if you to spend $9.99 per month or $49.99 a year, be my guest.

Do you use Myfitnesspal? What do you think of it?  Have you ever paid for the premium features?  Let me know what you think!!
