MyFitnessPal is a feature-heavy online platform where users can track what they eat each day, how much exercise they get, and receive support.
MyFitnessPal, initially released in 2005, is now one of the top fitness tracker apps available. It comes highly recommended by many personal trainers and dieticians for tracking food and exercise.
The platform is available online and for iOS and Android. It has a huge number of tracking features for helping people record their lifestyle habits and stay on track towards meeting their health goals. The fitness tracker can sync with other health apps to automatically record distance, the number of steps, and more. Exercise can be manually added with ease whether inputting cardio or reps and weights done of specific strength-training activities.
MyFitnessPal has a community feel where people can join chat groups, share information, and add each other as friends. Activity including milestones met, staying under calorie goals, and weight loss is all automatically displayed in their friends’ feeds who can interact with the news to offer support and congratulations.
One of the most notable features available on MyFitnessPal is the food diary. The online platform has a vast amount of data on food available in stores or restaurants all over the world. Users only have to scan the barcode of their packaged food and select the quantity for it to be included. Items from many food chains like Starbucks and popular supermarkets can usually be found, including the variations in different countries. Users can easily set up common meals they eat to add them quickly each day.
