My Fitness Pal : http://www.myfitnesspal.com/
I have tried many calorie and nutritional tracking methods over my fitness lifetime and I always go back to My Fitness Pal. While there are many great programs out there I have found the most success with My Fitness Pal. Here are some reasons why:
I have found it has the biggest database of nutritional information on foods as well as restaurant menus out there which is so convenient. It has the ability to sync automatically between your mobile app and desktop.You can sync up numerous applications:
- BodyMedia FIT
- Endomondo Sports Tracker
- Expresso Exercise Bike
- FINIS Swimsense
- Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale
- Fitbit Tracker
- MIO Active Connect
- Runtastic Pedometer
- RHYTHM Pulse Monitor
- Striiv Play Smart Pedometer
- The Withings Wi-Fi Scale
When people ask me what I do to stay fit and/or if I can help them to get to where they want to be I always ask the following questions:
- Are you getting enough sleep?
- Are you taking a multivitamin?
- Are you exercising?
- Are you keeping track of what you are eating?
- Are you exercising AND keeping track of what you are eating?
That last bullet is usually the biggest take away. Combing exercise and tracking what you eat are where people will start to feel and see a difference in their routine. When I say tracking what you are eating I am not just talking about calories. You may be under your daily caloric intake and way over your sugar and carbohydrates for the day. That could mean the difference between getting to your healthiest state. My fitness pal takes a look at each component of your diet and guides you where you are lacking or overindulging.
Are you ready to see a difference in your overall health? If so take a look and start on your journey to a healthier you!
