even if there are other health apps out there, I will still use this app. It worked for me when I tried to lose weight. This app together with a few workout videos helped me lose 45lbs. I have learned a lot using this app and also have met a few people with the same health or fitness goals. It's an amazing community. I also love the scanning feature they have to add the products. Makes entering meals or ingredients easy. It also connected with my Fitbit so it made entering my calories burned for the day easier.
This is a great app if you want to keep track of you daily food intake! you can print off daily reports if you want a hard copy you can add everything throughout your day into it. if you don't know where to start you enter in you goals and weight and it will figure out your macros for you in order for you to reach you health and fitness goals while watching what you eat.
This is a great (and free) app! It makes you accountable for the things you eat and encourages you to exercise! It didn't work for me as I got too obsessed with it and wasn't eating enough/ exercising too much so I made my self stop using it before I got too sick-- So if you are using it don't get too competitive with yourself- just use it as a guide! :)
Honestly, my life practically revolves around this app. I am a meticulous calorie counter (as in, weigh my food and log everything) when I'm trying to lose weight, and this app makes it so easy. The food database is huge, and it saves your recently used foods so they are easy to find. I have it synced to my FitBit, so my exercise calories are automatically accounted for, but you can easily enter those in separately (although the exercise database tends to give calorie burns on the high end, so sometimes it's best to only take 50-75% of what it gives). It also easily displays your macronutrient (carbs, fats, and proteins) totals, and you can adjust the micronutrients that are displayed if desired.
The community is also a great place to lurk, as there are hundreds of very knowledgeable and successful users there, who give great advice - the number one tip being, eat what you want within your calories, and you will lose weight! It's that simple. And MFP makes it that much easier.
my FAVOURITE app to track my food intake and workouts! It is so easy to track calories and marcos (fat protein carbs) on this app. The ONLY downfall is that it does not count net carbs (the only carbs that really count) so I have to do that math myself. Otherwise I LOVE it and it's free!
What a great tool for people needing to be more consious of what is going into their bodies and why they aren't losing weight! It's free and easy and pretty comprehensive for a free app. I need to get back on board!
This is an excellent app to calculate your macronutrients ( protein, carbs & fat) I use it everyday for the past year and I find it very useful!! You enter everything that you eat during the day and it calculates the amount of calories that you've reached. This is an excellent app if you're looking to loose weight or if you're training and would like to follow your macros!!
I downloaded this on my phone because I had heard a lot about it, I think that it has really great features like tracking how much you walk and how often you exercise. I really liked that you are able to find out how many calories are in the foods that I was eating. I use it every now and than but I see how someone could find this super useful.
I love this app! I've been using it on and off for over two years and every time I have the discipline to log in and track everything, I lose weight. It's amazing! It's very nice to follow my progress for this entire time and track my weight changes. For me, it works great. Love all the features available, as I can easily scan the code bar and get all the info I need. Also created any meal or recipe and have an overall idea of nutrition facts. I'm crazy over calorie intake info so this app is my BFF.
Until the last update to version 5.8, I would have given this app a very poor rating. I originally downloaded the app several years ago and loved it at the time, however over time it seemed the updates were causing something to happen. The app would freeze upon every action within it, sometimes going to a black screen and returning to the app, other times telling me the app was not responding.
That being said, this latest update has fixed all of the instabilities I was experiencing with the app and the improvements they have made (since I first signed up) are amazing! The diary is simple to use and has a great library of foods from most every brand out there. If you don't see what you're looking for, the scanning feature works great as well...I have never had an item not found using the upc scanner. syncing the app with my fitbit is one of my favourite features. The app tracks my steps and workouts throughout the day using by fitbit tracker, then adjusts the amount of calories I can have along with the exercise i've done.
There are many more great things about this app, but my favourite part is that i've lost 7lbs in 2 weeks.
