Using MyFitnessPal

This week, in addition to my Weight Watchers eTools, I signed up and started using myfitnesspal.com.  I have been using it for 5 days now and so far, so good.  I like it, but I want to give it some time to see how it goes.  I think I just needed something new and different than eTools, and to actually do some calorie counting.  The new Weight Watchers plan, I'm still on the fence about.  I like it, but I'm not totally in love.

I really enjoy using myfitnesspal. It really helps keep me accountable. Except for those day when I don't use it... I wish there was a way to count things without having to write it all down!

Hi. I read your blog, but sad to admit I don't comment. I'm a long-time WWer. I stopped counting points a while ago. I just got tired. And the new program? I just don't want to learn to recalculate everything. I've been using myfitnesspal for the past year and love it!! It's easy. I can input and save my own recipes. And when I'm out shopping or at restaurants, it's easier to know the calories on hand rather than having to calculate them into points.


I do still attend WW meeting cause i've met friends there and it keeps me accountable. And I do follow their thinking of eating whole, non-processed foods.

If MFP doesn't suit you, consider fatsecret.com. If you've got a smartphone, it has an integrated app for iphone or android. I find the interface really userfriendly.

My doctor just recommended MyFitnessPal to me last week, I've signed up but having started using it yet. I always have a hard time with calorie counters because I cook most of my food and integrated recipes can be such a pain to enter. But I guess you gotta do what you gotta do!
