22. My Fitness Pal

My goals have been chugging along nicely but I realise I need a bit more structure to my food intake to ensure I eating the right portion size, and the right kinds of foods.

So I have decided to log all the food I eat into My Fitness Pal.

What I like about My Fitness Pal is:

  • It’s free!
  • It breaks down foods by their calories/kilojoules but also by sugars, carbs, proteins, sodium etc.
  • You can easily search of supermarket items and find them, or something similar, and add it to your daily log.
  • You can log your weight loss as you go and track how that is going.
  • It sorts out, for your body weight, and weight-loss goals, how much you can eat per day.
  • It helps you to see how much extra you could eat (or benefit from) due to exercise.
  • It helps you figure out if you are eating too much, or not enough.
