Are You Up For the Challenge?

23 Apr

imageIf you are a person that is trying to lose weight or maintain your current weight, I found the perfect APP, also available online that is FREE and easy to use! After 3 kids, I was ready to lose the baby weight and My Fitness Pal helped me reach my goal!

I tried so many different apps looking for something that was easy but would still help me reach my goals so when I found My Fitness Pal, it was exactly what I was looking for. Download My Fitness Pal here to try it out or sign up Online here.

Getting Started

After downloading the App or signing up online, your profile will be created by entering your personal information which includes: height, gender, current weight and goal weight. It will calculate the number of calories to eat in order to either maintain or lose weight. All food eaten is entered in your “Diary”, and the calories are deducted from your number of suggested calories a day.

Easy to Use: Calculations are Done For You

Everything you could possible eat is already in the imagedatabase of foods. I have NEVER come across something that has not been in the database. When adding meals you have cooked with multiple ingredients, each ingredient is added seperate. Once added, you have the option of saving the meal or recipe, so next time you make that meal, you dont have to enter all the ingredients. It will be saved and easily added to your diary from “My Foods” or “My Recipes.”

The calculations are done for you! Enter your foods and it shows how many calories you have left for the day! Enter breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. As you add your foods in your diary, it always displays frequent and most recent foods added, which makes it even easier and faster to add.

Track Your Physical Activity

Any activities that you do whether its cardiovascular or strength training can be added as well. This will give you additional calories for the day. Every activity that you can possibly do is in the database so the calories burned are automatically calculated and is reflected in your diary. Aerobics, dancing, walking, bowling, cleaning, mowing the lawn, running, tennis, basketball are just a few examples of MANY excercises in the database.

Track Your Water Intake

imageWant to make sure you are drinking enough water? Add the number of glasses or bottles of water you drink! I am bad about not drinking enough water, so adding the amount of water I drink is reflected in my diary so it motivates me to drink more water!

Connect With Friends

Another great feature in My Fitness Pal, is that it allows you to connect with friends. If any of your friends have joined, you can motivate each other to stay on track.

Are You Up For the Challenge?

I would suggest giving this one a try!! It can be done on the computer or your phone so it’s easily accessed by anybody who wants to try and it’s FREE!
