My fitness Pal

Like a lot of people this time of year I am looking to eating heathier and losing weight. I know that tracking what you consume is the only way to really know if you are overeating or eating the wrong things. I've tried a lot of different ways to track from just keeping a diary to printing out pages to check off. But the easiest thing I've ever tried is a website called My Fitness Pal. There is also an app.






It couldn't be easier to have a record of what you are eating. You set your own goal and then daily go to the site and just put in what you eat from a huge list of foods. Over five million foods in their database. All the brands are there. I even found the hamburger cabbage casserole that I had last night for dinner. You choose the meal, choose the food and add it. It's that easy. It also tells you the amounts of carbs, proteins, calories and sugars you have for each meal and totals them for the day. Then it lets you know if you are over or under your requirement for the calories.

It dosn't tell you what to eat, but it makes it very easy to see what you are doing. You can go back and look at previous days. I know being aware is the first step to eating better. Give it a try.

  1. Keeping track, is so hard to do. With a little notebook.

    This sounds much easier.

    Best of luck!

  2. I'll try this. I know that my most successful times of eating wisely have been when I kept a food diary but it's so much trouble to do that.
