A beginner’s guide to MyFitnessPal

8313-original

There are plenty of apps designed to make calorie counting and nutritional tracking easier. But MyFitnessPal always tends to top the charts.

With its huge community of more than 80 million users, exhaustive food database and easy-to-use tracking features, it’s no surprise that it’s one of the top-performing apps, not just in the health and fitness category.

These impressive stats explain why the app was snapped up for $475 million by Under Armour earlier this year.

Read on to learn how to get started — we’ve used an iPhone for the walkthrough, but using an Android phone or signing up via the web is a very similar process.

1. Sign up and define your goals

A beginner

When you first sign up, the app asks you whether you want to lose, maintain or gain weight. Get your goals defined and stats filled in now as it’s likely to make you feel more committed. And be realistic.

More people use MyFitnessPal to lose weight than gain it so we’re assuming that’s what you’re doing.

Next up the app wants to know your Activity Level. For days when you’re not using an activity tracking wearable it’s good for MyFitnessPal to know how active you usually are. Over or underestimating at this stage might mean your calorie allowances are slightly skewed.

Next up you need to fill in some basic details about your gender, birthday and current height and weight, all worthwhile info for the app.

MyFitnessPal will now serve up your Weekly Goals and you can choose how much weight you want to aim for each week. In the example below the app is recommending a 1lb deficit each week, generally considered to be the healthiest option. For most people MyFitnessPal will label it as recommended. This doesn’t mean you can’t choose an easier or tougher goal though.

Next, add in your email address and pick a username (for forums so nothing too silly).

2. Log everything

A beginner

MyFitnessPal is created around the idea that to lose or gain weight you need to account for everything you do.

When you first sign in, the app will run you through the basics of how to upload a food. Hit the plus sign, select the meal, add a food and hit search. You’ll then be served up a lot of different options. If it’s something generic, like strawberries, you should be fine.

If it’s branded, like cereal, it’s a good idea to spend some time scrolling through to find the right brand as there can be pretty huge differences between cornflakes from one brand and another. Yes, really.

Once you’ve found the food, enter in the right quantity. Maybe invest in a small pair of scales to always get weights spot on. Once you’re done, hit the little tick in the top right and the food will be added to your daily calorie intake, which you can monitor from the main screen.

At the end of each day, click the little tick in the top right hand corner of the diary screen. Hitting that will figure out how long it’ll take to get to your goal based on the day. This is really useful as it can give you a kick in the right direction if you had a day of over-indulgence.

3. Set reminders

There are all kinds of things you can do to make tracking the food you eat a bit easier. So do yourself a few favours from the start.

For instance, you can set yourself reminders that arrive as push notifications on your phone to remind you to log meals. Just head to the three little dots in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and hit More. Then go to Reminders.

Tap the plus sign in the top right and then define a reminder, which can be a weigh-in, at particular times of the day (at breakfast or lunch, say) or simply a daily reminder to give MyFitnessPal some love.

4. Add favourite recipes, foods and meals

MyFitnessPal knows how annoying it is to enter everything little thing you eat, so to make the whole process easier you can create special lists of your favourite recipes, foods and meals.

This means if you enjoy a particular dish with 38, 597, 486 different ingredients in it, you only have to enter them all in once and then you can just select that meal each time you eat it. Otherwise you’d be doing nothing other than adding in each ingredient night after night. Boring.

Head to the three little dots in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and hit More and then go to My Recipes & Foods to start adding in your favourite — hopefully healthy — meals.

5. Set nutrient goals

A beginner

MyFitnessPal, and many other services in this space, are built around the importance of the calorie.

The truth is calorie tracking isn’t the be-all-and-end-all of healthy living or even weight loss. That means it’s well worth redefining your nutrient and macronutrient goals to suit your goals. Head to the three little dots and hit More, then go to Goals and Nutrition Goals.

Hitting Calories & Macros will allow you to tweak your Calories, Carbohydrates, Protein and Fat level goals. What you can see in there now is MyFitnessPal’s standard suggestions, which on the whole are the recommend amounts. But if you want to focus your diet on something a little different, it’s a good idea to start changing these.

Once you’ve figured out what you want your focus to be, you’ll need your main MyFitnessPal dashboard to reflect these changes. After all, there’s no point having calories running the show if you’re on a low carb, high fat eating plan. Head back to the Home tab and then hit the three dots next to Calories Remaining.

Here you’ll be able to choose what the main dashboard shows you, whether that’s calories, macronutrients, low carb or your own customised summary. The problem is, these are all Premium Features.

6. Get involved in the community

Some people love to chat to others about their weight loss journeys, share tips and search for new recommendations. Others prefer to go it alone. If you’re in the first camp, you’ll be happy to hear that MyFitnessPal has a huge community of users who share tips, write in forums and join friend groups.

Head to More and then go to Community. This is where you can read through the MyFitnessPal forums, where you’ll find discussions on everything MFP-related, from official news and announcements, through to tips and success stories. Get as involved as you like or just jump straight in and visit the Introduce Yourself thread at the top.

7. Record steps

A beginner

The app is much more accurate if you tell MyFitnessPal how many steps you take and what kinds of exercises you’ve done. You can add all of this in manually but you can also use apps, wearables and even your phone.

Hit More and then go to Steps. Here you can turn off this functionality altogether, use Apple Health to track your steps or head to Add a Device.

Lots of different step counting wearables can sync up to MyFitnessPal (some easier than others) from Fitbit to Withings to Jawbone. I used a combination of a Jawbone UP3 and MyFitnessPal for my calorie counting challenge and they played very nicely together the whole time.

If it’s steps you’re keen to sync up with your wearable, then find your device in the Steps section and hit Connect. Give MFP permission to talk to your wearable and, for some, head into the wearable’s app too. So if you’re a fan of the Jawbone devices, go to the UP app and from there add in MyFitnessPal by heading to Apps, hunt out MyFitnessPal and click the little plus sign.

8. Sync apps and wearables

It’s not just your steps that MyFitnessPal wants to know about. Rather than clicking Steps, try heading to Apps & Devices. Not only can you sync up different wearables, but apps and devices designed to track other activities, like Cyclemeter, Fitstar Yoga and even fertility apps like Glow.

It works the same as above, just find the app or device you want to hook up to MyFitnessPal, add it and make sure all the different levels of approval are ticked. Sometimes apps won’t play nice with MyFitnessPal but restart them to see if that works.

9. Add exercises manually

If you don’t have a wearable, or use one that tracks steps and not much else, then add in your workouts manually. Go to the plus sign at the bottom of the app dashboard, but instead of selecting food go to Exercise.

You can choose between Cardio and Strength. And, just like adding food, the more detail you can add the better. For example, if you search «Swimming» there are so many different options detailing different strokes. You then need to specify minutes performed and ideally the calories you’ve burned. Obviously this involves a fair bit of guesswork if you don’t have a wearable at your disposable.

10. View your progress, add notes

Watching your weight drop (or rise) can be a huge source of motivation. That’s why you need to make sure you add your stats to weigh in. You can do this by hitting the plus sign at the bottom of the dashboard and selecting Weight.

Over time you can see your weight plotted in the Progress tab, which is good to check in on, but also makes it clear if you need to start tweaking your goals.

You can also make notes if you want to record experiences, keep tabs on your mood or just add in something you’d like to see plotted against your progress.

The Complete Guide to Using MyFitnessPal for Successful Weight Loss

As a fitness coach with over 10 years of experience helping clients lose weight, I‘ve tested just about every diet and calorie tracking app on the market. And in my professional opinion, MyFitnessPal stands out as one of the best and most effective weight loss tools available today.

However, MyFitnessPal is not without its flaws. As with any app that relies heavily on crowd-sourced data, inaccurate user submissions can undermine the quality of the tool. Recent changes eliminating some key features from the free version have also sparked complaints.

In this complete guide, I‘ll give you an in-depth look at how MyFitnessPal works, its standout features, and where it falls short. You‘ll get tips to avoid pitfalls and use the app properly to reach your weight loss goals. I‘ll also offer my expert perspective on whether upgrading to premium is advisable.

Let‘s start with an overview of MyFitnessPal‘s capabilities.

How MyFitnessPal Works to Track Calories and Nutrition

At its core, MyFitnessPal gives you a simple, user-friendly way to log every single thing you eat and drink on a daily basis. You can easily track:

  • Calories
  • Macronutrients (protein, carbs, fat)
  • Micronutrients (vitamins and minerals)
  • Water intake
  • Exercise and activity

To log food, you can either search MyFitnessPal‘s huge database of over 14 million items, scan barcodes on packaged foods, or enter custom foods and recipes. The app provides breakdowns showing the nutritional data for everything you log.

MyFitnessPal then tracks this information against a daily calorie goal that you set based on your weight loss aims. Staying in your caloric deficit is key for shedding unwanted pounds.

This simplifies the tedious process of tracking nutrition in a food journal or spreadsheet. Having food data right in your pocket makes recording meals painless so it becomes habit. This level of convenience and consistency is why calorie counting with MyFitnessPal works so well for weight loss.

Benefits and Standout Features

Here are some of the best features that make MyFitnessPal a cut above other weight loss apps:

Huge, Crowd-Sourced Food Database

With over 14 million food items contributed by users, MyFitnessPal has one of the largest databases out there. This makes logging most foods as easy as a quick search. No more guessing calories and macros!

However, the purity of crowd-sourced data does come with drawbacks that I‘ll expand on later.

Barcode Scanning

For packaged foods, scanning barcodes pulls all the nutritional info automatically. This makes logging fast foods, grocery items, and restaurant meals a breeze.

Recipe Tool

The recipe tool lets you input all the ingredients in a home cooked meal along with number of servings. MyFitnessPal will then calculate overall calories and nutrition for the entire recipe as well as breakdowns per serving.

You can store these recipes for quick selection anytime you eat that dish instead of entering ingredients manually. This saves tons of time for tracking home cooked food.

Restaurant Food Database

Eating out while sticking to your diet can be tricky. MyFitnessPal contains nutrition data for menu items of over 350,000 restaurants. Although not 100% comprehensive, this database helps estimate calories when dining out.

Custom Goal Setting

Tell MyFitnessPal your current weight along with how fast you aim to lose (either 1 or 2 pounds per week). The app will calculate a daily calorie target tailored to your goals.

As you lose weight, you can change your goal weight at any time to adjust your calorie needs. Customizable goals based on your personal stats makes MyFitnessPal highly personalized.

Progress Tracking

Charts showing calories consumed and burned help visualize your daily progress. Seeing your weight fluctuations graphed out holds you accountable.

Photo progress tracking and body measurement logging are also great accountability tools.

Third Party App Integrations

Syncing with fitness trackers and smart scales gives you credit for extra calories burned during workouts. MyFitnessPal plays nice with over 50 other health apps and devices.

Social Features

Connecting with friends, joining groups focused on specific diets or lifestyles, and participating in community forums helps provide motivation and accountability during your journey.

Downsides and Flaws

As with any app relying on crowdsourcing nutrition data, MyFitnessPal has its limitations:

Inaccurate Data

With so many users entering food info, mistakes and duplications are inevitable in such a huge database.

Typos like incorrect calorie counts or portion sizes mean you could be getting flawed data unless you double check against other sources like nutrition labels. This undercuts precision which scientists require for controlling variables in weight loss experiments.

As a general guide for the average dieter, estimates are fine. But inaccurate submissions open room for you to unknowingly consume way more calories than you log.

Misleading Macronutrient Breakdowns

Here‘s an example of the math not always adding up properly:

Say your goal calories for the day are 1600. You log eating 150 grams of protein, 150 grams carbs, and 50 grams fat. This adds up to 1350 calories, leaving you with 250 left to allocate as you wish.

But according to pure macros-to-calories conversions, you‘ve already hit your 1600 allotment. The macros don‘t sync with total calories due to MyFitnessPal‘s algorithm miscalculating certain entries.

While minor discrepancies won‘t sabotage progress, large inconsistencies like this illustrate flaws in the database.

Questionable Calorie Estimates for Exercise

MyFitnessPal overestimates calorie burn from workouts. Lots of wishful thinkers put too much stock into these numbers without realizing that fitness trackers and equipment metrics get inflated.

Don‘t eat back all the exercise calories MyFitnessPal claims you burned. This is one of the most common obstacles dieters run into that stall weight loss.

Recent Changes to Free Version

Previously offered features like custom macronutrient goals have now moved to paid subscriptions only. Limits to API access have also rendered some third party integrations defunct.

These changes have made the free version quite limited for precision tracking. You now see more ads too.

While a bummer for long-time users, stripped down free versions are becoming more common. The core food logging and stats tracking still help guide weight loss.

But the increasingly crippled free app has led many to question whether…

Is the Paid Version Worth It?

MyFitnessPal‘s premium version offers helpful extras at $9.99 per month. Upgrading nets you:

No Annoying Ads

For uninterrupted user experience without flashy distractions, the ad-free app provides visual peace and quiet.

Advanced Nutrition Analysis

Premium unlocks macronutrient breakdowns for each meal rather than just daily totals. Visualizing how protein, carbs, and fats distribute across snacks vs. main meals helps structure balanced eating.

You also get deeper insights like pie charts showing percentages that each nutrient contributes to your diet. Further customization comes with ability to set ideal protein targets better suited to your goals.

More Accurate Data

Premium membership verifies the accuracy of crowdsourced data better. Higher quality control for nutrition info keeps your logs precise.

Food Diary Time Stamps

Time stamp every meal with not just dates but also clock times. This helps notice patterns for times of day when overeating occurs. Coping with triggers gets easier.

Net Carbs for Low Carb Diets

For keto and other super low carb plans, tracking net carbs (total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols) matters more than totals. Premium unlocks net carb counts for sharper data.

Considering costs of a gym membership or personal trainer, $9.99 per month seems reasonable if you use MyFitnessPal daily and want to up your game.

I generally recommend new users start with the robust free version to test it out. You can always upgrade later after seeing for yourself whether premium features seem helpful enough to justify the ongoing expense.

At the end of the day, basic food and weight logging offered in free MyFitnessPal works remarkably well for most people trying to slim down.

Tips for Getting the Most Out of MyFitnessPal

To avoid pitfalls that may sabotage success, keep these best practice tips in mind:

Double Check Questionable Nutrition Data

If calorie or macronutrient info seems suspiciously high or low compared to normals, cross-reference against nutrition labels or reputable sites like Nutritionix. Don‘t blindly trust improbable data.

Weigh Solid Foods Instead of Estimating

Reduces margin of error since eyes playing visual tricks leads people to underestimate portion sizes. Digital kitchen scales give objective measures immune from our eye‘s natural biases.

Read Serving Sizes Closely

Ounces versus grams versus cups – different units affect nutrition data. Be meticulous to log accurately.

Create Your Own Foods and Recipes

Building personalized entries using objective nutrition info guarantees quality data free of mistakes from other users.

Ignore Calorie Estimates for Exercise

Whatever MyFitnessPal credits back for your workout burned, cut this in half (or even less) when deciding how much more you can eat that day. Those totals get bloated so you‘ll still create a surplus eating them back.

The Bottom Line

Minor gripes aside, MyFitnessPal undeniably ranks among today‘s most powerful apps for losing weight. Recording meals daily creates awareness and discipline. Charts drive accountability through data.

Success ultimately depends on your consistency using the tool properly and intelligently. MyFitnessPal simply enables the heavy lifting of tracking to build healthier eating habits over time.

Give its free version an honest shot. If after a month you find yourself needing to up the ante, premium may prove worthwhile depending on your personal weight loss styles and preferences.

Consistency remains key – so develop the habit of logging meals no matter which version you choose. Commit to that and the pounds will start melting off thanks to MyFitnessPal!

Приложение Myfitnesspal для подсчета калорий

Всем хочется быть стройными и красивыми, но не каждый готов придерживаться сложных диет. К тому же отзывы на эти диеты бывают достаточно противоречивыми. Многие склоняются к проверенному решению – считать калории и худеть за счет энергетического дефицита. Чтобы не заниматься подсчетами на бумаге, можно использовать специальные приложения. В этой статье мы расскажем про популярный сервис Myfitnesspal: как пользоваться приложением, в чем его преимущества и недостатки, почему худеть с ним будет удобно. Также мы сравним его с другим популярным сервисом Fatsecret, он тоже помогает считать калории и худеть.

Дефицит калорий способствует похудению, это доказанный и неоспоримый факт. Разберемся, как приложение Myfitnesspal этому способствует. Узнать, что такое калории можно из статьи «Понятие и значение калорий».

Почему стоит выбрать MFP?

Выбор в пользу этого сервиса сделали более ста миллионов человек по всему миру. Это доступный инструмент для отслеживания своего прогресса и достижения цели, он предоставляет пользователю необходимую информацию для этого. Приложение пригодится не только тем, кто хочет похудеть, сфера его применения более обширна:

  • больше узнать о своих пищевых привычках, выявить вредные и избавиться от них;
  • узнать, получает ли организм достаточное количество питательных веществ;
  • контролировать рацион при пищевой аллергии и других заболеваниях, связанных с ограничениями в питании.

Самое интересное, что большую часть работы сделали не создатели сервиса, а сами пользователи. Они стали крупнейшим сообществом единомышленников по вопросу заботы и своем здоровье.

Приложение Myfitnesspal для подсчета калорий

Преимущества

Есть несколько причин выбрать именно MFP:

  • мотивация. Пользователь проходит регистрацию, после которой становится членом сообщества. Теперь он не остается один на один со своей проблемой, он обретает поддержку. Люди делятся своими историями успеха, вселяя в других уверенность. Хорошо мотивирует само приложение, оно сообщает, что через пять недель ты будешь весить на три килограмма меньше, или предупреждает, что за обедом ты съел больше жиров, чем следовало бы;
  • наличие ежегодных отчетов по общим успехам, это напоминание о том, что ты – часть большой команды. Эти отчеты предоставляются в интересном виде, например, наши пользователи скинули более 82 млн килограммов лишнего веса, столько весят 450 китов;
  • бесплатное использование. Приложение создавалось, чтобы каждый мог жить здоровой и активной жизнью;
  • это удобно и просто. Чтобы разобраться в работе сервиса, не нужна инструкция, он направляет пользователя шаг за шагом, всегда подсказывает, что нужно сделать;
  • синхронизация приложения и сайта. Пользоваться можно в любом месте, где есть интернет. Доступ осуществляется как с мобильных устройств, так и со стационарного компьютера.

Приложение Myfitnesspal для подсчета калорий

Личный профиль

В начале использования нужно выбрать одну из целей: похудение, поддержание веса стабильным, набор мышечной массы, осуществления контроля за питанием. После регистрации часто возникает вопрос относительно термина «чистые калории» в Myfitnesspal: что это такое, какая норма. Чтобы получить чистые калории, сервис отнимает от числа поглощенных калорий потраченную на активность энергию. Соответственно, в тренировочный день ты можешь съесть больше. Если установлена ежедневная питательная цель в 2000 ккал, а на тренировке ты тратишь 500 ккал, значит, дневное потребление в день тренировки должно составить 2500 ккал.

Мужчинам нельзя снижать потребление менее 1500 ккал, женщинам – менее 1200. Более подробно про это рассказывается в материале «Как правильно рассчитать калории для похудения».

Приложение Myfitnesspal для подсчета калорий

Особенности использования

Продуктовая база объединила более шести миллионов наименований, это самая большая база среди аналогичных сервисов по всему миру. К тому же она постоянно пополняется. Если в списке не нашлось нужного продукта, ты можешь его тут же добавить. Указанная пользователем пищевая ценность проверяется командой разработчиков, если все верно, то к позиции прикрепляется значок одобрения.

Myfitnesspal синхронизируется с популярными спортивными приложениями. Это означает, что тебе не придется вручную добавлять данные о потраченных калориях. Возможна синхронизация с Runkeeper, Fitbit, Endomondo, Jawbone и другими сервисами. MFP будет сразу же получать сведения о физической нагрузке и регулировать пищевые цели.

Как пользоваться?

Доступный интерфейс делает управление интуитивным. Подсказки предупреждают возникающие вопросы.

Регистрация

При первом использовании необходимо зарегистрироваться на сайте или осуществить вход через свою страничку на Facebook. После этого следует задать свои биометрические параметры и определить цель. Отвечай на вопросы относительно здорового образа жизни честно, ведь от этого зависит норма дневной калорийности питания. После этого будет составлена индивидуальная программа по питанию.

Если целью является похудение, то MFP предупредит, что терять в неделю более килограмма опасно для здоровья. К его советам стоит прислушиваться.

Приложение Myfitnesspal для подсчета калорий

Ведение дневника

Для контроля за поступающими калориями требуется вести дневник питания. Стандартный рацион включает четыре трапезы. Если ты привык питаться чаще, то сможешь добавить дополнительные приемы пищи и перекусы. Это делается на сайте в настройках, там же можно переименовать приемы пищи.

Чтобы внести в дневник съеденное блюдо, поищи его в базе данных. Если наименование не найдено, то добавь его в базу самостоятельно, оно сохранится. Функция быстрого добавления позволяет сразу указать поступившее количество калорий. Также имеется возможность скопировать блюдо из любой трапезы. Помимо еды стоит отмечать количество выпитой воды, это позволит следить за водным балансом организма.

Если Myfitnesspal не синхронизирован со спортивным приложением, то расход энергии добавляется вручную. В категории «Упражнения» есть база данных по тренировкам, нужно выбрать свой тип нагрузок и указать продолжительность. Все тренировки сохраняются, их можно будет копировать.

Подведение итогов

Когда все сведения были добавлены, нажми на «Завершить запись». Программа подведет итоги и сделает твой персональный прогноз. Например, оповестит, что через пять недель в таком же режиме ты похудеешь на 3 кг. Приложение укажет превышения потребления нутриентов, к примеру, сегодня была превышена суточная норма жиров. Все данные систематизируются и обрабатываются, это позволяет подсчитывать общую статистику.

Удобные функции

Некоторые функции делают использование приложения особенно удобным. В первую очередь это возможность сканирования штрих-кода в поиске продуктов. После сканирования пищевая ценность будет автоматически добавлена в дневник питания. На сайте можно добавить свой рецепт, он сохранится и станет доступным в приложении. Однако, делать это можно только на английском языке.

MFP позволяет добавлять других пользователей в друзья, делиться успехами, писать им сообщения. Это полноценная социальная сеть, создатели рекомендуют людям со схожими целями объединяться в тематические группы. Поддержка единомышленников усиливает мотивацию. Доступ к дневнику можно оставить открытым, показывать только друзьям или скрыть данные от всех. Согласно статистике сервиса, пользователи, которые взаимодействуют друг с другом, легче теряют лишние килограммы.

Myfitnesspal или Fatsecret?

FatSecret работает по аналогии с MFP, у него не так много последователей, но оно тоже популярно. Функционал позволяет точно так же заполнять дневник питания, добавлять тренировки, помимо этого присутствует функция отслеживания продолжительности и качества сна. Пользоваться сервисом просто, но у него есть несколько существенных недостатков.

Весомый минус в том, что программа недооценивает уровень белка и натрия. Для тех, кто худеет, этот недостаток может показаться незначительным, ведь избыточное потребление протеина не отражается на фигуре. Но это создает проблемы для людей со склонностью к повышенному артериальному давлению. Они пользуются подобными сервисами в первую очередь для контроля за поступлением натрия.

Еще один недостаток FatSecret по сравнению с Myfitnesspal – это непроверенные сведения. Любой пользователь может добавить свой продукт или блюдо, указав его энергетическую ценность, но никто не контролирует корректность этих сведений. Одно и то же блюдо может приготовлено по-разному, ввиду чего питательная ценность меняется, подсчеты становятся необъективными.

Компетентная поддержка – это весомое преимущество MFP.

Теперь ты знаешь, что такое Myfitnesspal, как пользоваться этим приложением и добиваться результатов благодаря его поддержке. На данный момент это самый популярный сервис для подсчета калорий во всем мире. Если ты следишь за калорийностью питания, то тебе будет интересно узнать «5 фактов о калориях, которые ты не знаешь».
