As part of this new start i thought i needed to try out a diet app to keep a track of my wandering diet. A lot of people have moved around these and i’d heard the myfitnesspal app mentioned a few times and decided to give it a chance.
My previous experience has been with Livestrong from its popularity a while back and i’d never seen a massive need to change.
First up app seems to run really smoothly on my current phone (iphone 6) and i got my account setup with ease and in quick time.
App layout is good and quite intuitive even for less technical able types. A quick runthrough of logging meals was easy to run through and had everything i’ve been looking for.
How Much Does Myfitnesspal Cost?
Signup for this app is free and along with the iphone app you can access on any computer with your sign in details.
The food side of things has an decent edge over its rivals, the database has no rivals that i’ve come across especially for restaurant and supermarket foods. Throw the barcode reader into the mix and sometimes you can be done logging a meal in a matter of seconds.
A great example is when combined with some HelloFresh stuff i was testing i discovered that all the meals i was having that week were already included with calories counted for me, nothing like that kind of thing to keep a user motivated.
For me the gym app could do with work but there are other apps that link in with this through the under armour brand that can link in with this but ultimately its a bit weak and the fact that you can put down x time in the gym and have automatically burnt hundres of calories may give people false hope in my opinion and an excuse to indulge on the cals.
This thing is great, it will take commitment but frankly that’s down to your determination to succeed in what you are looking to achieve by using the myfitnesspal app as the usability of it is great. I have setup some of the reminders to jog my memory when a busy day has sometimes distracted me from logging which have been extremely helpful.
If someone comes to me know talking about tracking etc this at the moment will be my first choice recommendation, give it a go yourself.
