  • Calorie/Fitness Tracker

    Rageblanket gave me the idea to check out a calorie tracker app. Are you all using one? I had no idea they made things this easy.

    Thought I'd share the tip in case anyone else was in the same boat.
    This one even had Team Skip Blend in their database. Hopefully this isn't old news to everyone.

    I have been using myfitnesspal for a while now. It's been my favorite out the ones I've tried. They also have an app for smartphones which is handy.

      That's the one I use as well. I was pleased to see the TEAMSkip blend already in there. They have every food I've eaten in their database, and the app is simple + free. Win!
      You're perfect, yes it's true. But without me...you're only you.

        I have found a few things not in the database or the nutrition facts were completely wrong, but they make it extremely easy to add your own foods and make changes to existing ones which is a huge plus. Gives you the best of both worlds, unlike other sites that have a shitty database or a great database with little as far as custom food options go. I like that you can save meals and recipes as well.

          I use myfitnesspal.com too. As you mentioned, you do have to check things before you use them since sometimes they're way off and sometimes people only include the total calories, but it is a very easy way to track your food and supplements intake. The Android is pretty easy to use too, but you get more detail when you're logged in to the website.

            I use fitday.com - but I use it more out of habbit and the nostalgia of having an account since 2001.

            I know cron-o-meter is a good application/website and it appears to have a smoother operating style then fitday.

            I may have to try myfitnesspal as well.

            The combination of a food scale and a calorie counting application has made a huge difference in my diet. Seriously... who thought a tblsp of peanut butter was really THAT little.

              I also use myfitnesspal. With the app on my iPhone, you can actually scan barcodes and have the nutritional information pop up. Very handy. It also allows me to track my weight as well.

                  my fitnesspal all the way and I love how it has so many foods and gives you the option to add your own, provided you've worked out the macros. i recommend it to all my clients to help them track their own diets.

                      That's not the reason we use apps such as this. Used to track what we eat, not tell us wat we eat

                        yea, mine suggested i take in 400 carbs or something ridiculous.. and like 80g of protein. I just ignore those default settings, you can customize the "Goal" function with myfitnesspal. Like, input 300g protein/day, 170g carb as goals.
