MyFitnessPal: Calorie Counter Positive Reviews
Great app for people serious about losing weightI started using this app seriously in mid-July. The database for foods is great and I up until recently just used the free version. During this time I lost 11 lbs. I set my profile to the lowest setting for activity and have my pedometer set to the app to add calories I get for walking. My goal is to just keep under the calories based on losing 1.5 LBS a week. My suggestion is record everything even if you go over (it will happen occasionally). But that’s ok because you can work harder the next day.
I finally did buy the premium version mainly for the export feature. I am an analyst by trade so I like to put my results into graphs and do monitoring beyond the app’s capabilities. I will stress it is not needed to lose weight. If you don’t want to spend time looking at your different nutrients then I would not spend the money on it. If you do it could be worth it.
I like how the app says you have a 67% chance of better success if you pay for the premium. They don’t tell you about the confounder. The reason that happens most likely is people who do buy the app in general are more serious about the long hall. This should not be viewed as a diet it needs to be viewed as a life change that you will do going forward. Once you reach your goal you then switch to maintenance so you keep your weight and don’t gain it back..Version: 20.17.1
Great app but could use more user control of selecting or defining serving sizesI really like this app. I use it for calorie counting. It links to Garmin Connect for integrating exercise calories into the overall balance for the day. You can scan barcodes for food items for easier logging. You can select items from your history of previous entries (great for frequently eaten foods). You can text search for foods, which accesses an enormous list of prior entries that I assume have been entered or scanned by other users. So why only four stars? My only peeve with the program is that it doesn’t seem to let users edit the serving size for many items, beyond being able to select from a too often extremely limited and sometimes arbitrary mix of imperial/metric/liquid/solid measures. The options presented vary widely from item to item, with little apparent logic. The best solution I have is to try to find items that use 1g as a serving size and then list the number of grams for that day’s serving as the number of servings for that entry. Since I’m using a food scale, that works for me. Seems a better solution would be to allow users to edit any food item to select from a full complement of serving sizes (or to just directly enter the desired serving size using the keyboard). Or just provide 1g as a choice in all cases (or at least all solid cases). In any case, I love and recommend the app, with the measurement detail being my only pet peeve..Version: 22.8.0
Disliked UI immediatelyYears ago, I used this app to drop some pounds and really liked its features. I’m at a point where I need to reassess my diet and thought this would be a good option to return to, but the moment I opened the app after re-downloading, I just felt like it wasn’t for me. Calorie counting apps are a dime a dozen now, and a lot of them have worked hard on providing an interface that’s both efficient (because who wants to work around a clunky app when it already takes lots of time out of your busy day to record meals?) and visually pleasing (weight and dieting can be an unpleasant subject, right?).
MyFitnessPal was clunky from the moment it requested my vitals (difficult to scroll and go to the next input field), to the tutorial, to the constant pop ups demanding I consider upgrading to premium. I’ve barely used the app yet, why not leave me alone and try again when I’ve actually had time to experience it? There is no focus on calorie information on the home page, instead dedicating screen space to blog posts etc. that I don’t have the time or desire to read anyway. It’s difficult to find the wearable device/app integration options. The camera scanner is much slower than other apps I’ve used with the same technology. Overall there is no sleek design or cute graphics that would make the this app unique or pleasant to use regularly. I was just disappointed in how far this app has fallen behind, and you probably will feel the same..Version: 20.24.7
Gross Pictures with Ads but extensive databaseI’ve been using this app for years. There are so many ads now which I understand. But some of them pop up on your feed right when you open the app and there are some really gross images. A lot of times I am eating when I enter my calories and the images for the weird ads are so gross it makes me stop eating and lose my appetite. There was one that came up for weeks that showed someone getting ear wax removed. Now I logged in and it shows a close up of someone removing some type of gross substance from the back of their throat. Why would you have these kinds of ads show up on the home page of a food log app?
Also, if you sync with Fitbit it enters your workouts automatically but it also tracks your steps and gives you a calorie adjustment for that as well, which Is like double tracking. If you go for a run for example, it will sync the workout from fitbit and give you the calories for that, and then also add in your steps from the run and give you more calories which I don’t think is accurate.
Other than that, no other food app compares as far as the extensive food database and the ease of being able to enter recipes, meals, etc. I also love the social functionality where friends can comment on your status. Of course they have to scroll through all the ads in the feed to find your updates, and overlook the gross images of earwax and other things..Version: 20.11.0
App ReviewA great service providing a platform for success on a human health quest. The My Fitness Pal application allows anyone to compile a detailed log of nutritional and fitness info into an easy to use, easy to interpret, easy to afford (free), and simple to navigate system. The breakdown of information into multiple charts and graphs is a phenomenal resource. The flexibility of being able to modify multiple facets of your goals such as macro nutrients, weight loss/gain per week, etc. is extremely intuitive and suitable for a wide range of fitness/nutritional goals. Nearly anyone can master this application within a reasonable timeframe of consistent effort and in turn become the master of their fitness/health destiny. My Fitness Pal has provided a great service and allowed for anyone with the desire to do so to achieve the best version of themselves possible. Also, after a long endeavor spanning months or years and reviewing your data in retrospect allows for a particular cognizance for what worked well and what did not. This, in turn, provides a chance to hone an adequate regimen into the ultimate program fine tuned to your personal goals. My Fitness pal provides an amenity that fosters a healthier and happier human race to those who utilize it. This application has earned a large following of motivated individuals for these reasons and stood the test of time. Go forth and conquer your goals with profound efficiency.
Great App for someone with a disabilityI have Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, and I am a recent heart transplant patient. I lost about 30 pounds before my transplant because I knew it would be a hard transition and it is important to give yourself and those helping you the best edge you possibly can. It’s also important to really educate yourself on nutrition and your body, I studied nutrition on my own did all the exercises I could, learned my body type and how I metabolize food. I also consult with my doctors and get blood work done so I know how to best tweak my diet to maximize my diet and health. Get some it’s always wise to consult with your doctors and even get a basic basic metabolic panel done to check your blood work.
I recently gained a few pounds back from being on high doses of prednisone and others that made me super hangry like that already food loving person I am. As knowledgeable I am about nutrition I’m not a machine and this app keeps me accountable and allows me to make the most of my health habits. The key is to have a healthy balance and not obsess over losing weight and constantly over analyzing everything. It also helps me remember to hydrate. Don’t go crazy extreme, pace yourself and allow yourself to have many of the things you crave don’t over indulge make healthier versions of what you crave and eat smaller portions of the things you really want..Version: 7.36
It made me realizeMy New Years resolution was to get to a certain weight that would call for me to lose about 15 pounds. I already ate rather healthy during my meals, but I had a problem with snacking. I wasn’t at the point of sitting down and eating an entire family bag of chips in one setting. I would however eat a handful here and there, eat 4 Girl Scout cookies twice a day, and some of the candy my grandma loves to send me every and I mean every holiday. I couldn’t see how much that snacking affected me. My fitness pal has helped me keep track of my calories as I take them in and it has worked wonders! I have been successfully losing weight and it’s all because I can actually see a number to know how many calories I have left in my day when I go to grab the snack. Now don’t get me wrong I still snack some, but I’ll do one snack a day now or half of the amount of chips and half of the cookies instead of a large amount. Another thing that this app has helped me with is realizing how I feel after I eat. For example if I am not eating healthier foods I usually feel exhausted the next day. I didn’t realize it before but now that I have a food diary to look back on I can see what I ate compared to how I feel..Version: 7.33
It worksCICO (calories in calories out) works. Even if you’re not planning on changing your eating habits, it helps to just track what you’re eating with MFP. There’s a whole world of nutrition and forums, videos, websites, cook books and apps dedicated to this type of thing. You can get into it all by starting with a calorie counting app like this one.
I don’t use any of MFP’s features except for the calorie tracking ones. I do use the “recipe” feature a lot as it lets me portion out big batches appropriately. For example, earlier today I knew to portion a beef stew I made into 11 servings so they’d be at 538 calories each. How would you get that kind of insight without carefully tracking he ingredients of a recipe? You wouldn’t.
My one complaint is that I’ve had the recipe app crash MULTIPLE times while I’m in the middle of cooking. Obviously this is a pain because I can’t just remember the itemized list of ingredients in painstakingly measured grams. My workaround is to save every few additions so I don’t lose too much if it crashes. And it shouldn’t be crashing, I’m using MFP on an iPhone 12 Pro. If it’s going to be an ideal user experience anywhere, it should be on this. Can’t imagine how much worse it is on inferior hardware. Get your $;[email protected]/ together MFP devs, figure out how to not let your app crash and lose data..Version: 21.6.5
Dietary Restriction Alerts & Polar CompatibilityIn my own, personal opinion, the features that would earn fifth star would be to expand compatibility toward Polar brand products and applications, and to allow users to enter in specific ingredient, calorie, macro/micronutrient restrictions to be alerted to in meals & recipes. It would be great to know if something I ate (or am logging because I'm about to eat) will conflict with a low FODMAP diet, or has more of a specific nutrient than I want at the time. I recall a previous version that would offer food tips ("this food is high in sodium", "this food is a great source of vitamin c", etc.)
I haven't yet tried the paid version, and these could be included there, but I felt it worth mentioning. Overall, the app comes packed with so many intuitive, convenient features, I have succeeded in making journaling with it part of my daily dietary considerations. The terms and conditions of the challenges offered are abjectly terrifying, though, and ought to be more prominently featured before agreeing to them. Currently, the language you provide allows sponsoring companies the freedom to scour my phone for any notes I've taken to work on business projects of my own during my participation, and hamstrings me to do anything to defend my own privacy and trade secrets afterward if they take any action on them. Not cool..Version: 7.26
Great for tracking meals. Big bugs.This app has been useful for tracking my meals over the last year but there are some issues. The app will read and write the *same* data from Apple Health, screwing up your weight in both apps. I always update my weight in Apple health but when you look at the data in the app it shows the source of the data and after every entry in Apple, there is an identical entry written by MFP. Sometimes this is a day after another entry and this especially screws up my data. Doesn’t seem there is an easy way to fix and has increasingly become a frustrating problem.
The good features are the ability to see your data at a glance under the progress tab that is easy to get to and shows progress in weight, steps, and other body measurements.
I have tried a few other apps that have a much nicer UI (like Senza) but while it looks great, the design is a bit more complicated to use. KetoDiet has much more relevant, diet-inclusive recipes than MFP but it probably would not be as useful to someone on a different diet.
Overall this is the best app for most people that may be on any number of diets, as you are able to track macros and calories (even from many restaurants) quickly and add workouts. Those are the basics of most body management plans and this app does it best..Version: 20.24.6
One Small Feature RequestI’ve tried experimenting with other apps that almost all have better UI, but always lack something big, like a smaller pool of food available in their database to scan barcodes for which I find to be the main reason I use this app. But one thing other apps tend to have that this one doesn’t would be for a recommended nutrition breakdown per meal, in addition to the already existing total goal for the day. This gives me an idea on how important each meal is and allows me to recognize what parts of the day I slack on my nutrition and push me to try and meet that goal. It sounds basic and obvious but having the numbers presented in front of me that I haven’t met my goal yet gives me the motivation to look around for more options to eat than I’d routinely do. It also gives me an idea of how close/far I am to reaching those goals throughout the day. Without this feature, I can slack on breakfast or lunch and end up thinking I got a somewhat good meal, I’ll just have to eat a little more on my next meal, then by the time I get about halfway through the day and see how many calories and other nutritional categories I still have to get, I think to myself there’s no way I can get that many in the next meal or two, and I end up settling well short of my goal..Version: 20.10.0
Pretty good, top choice for me, minor flawsOverall, I’ve used this app for many years on and off. I keep coming back because it has many things for free that a lot of other apps do not have and I appreciate that! The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because I’ve noticed a few times that when using the barcode to scan in calories and nutrition MFP is off and does not match the dietary information on the packaging. The most recent 2 being, great value home style waffles packaging says 130 per serving (2waffles) MFP when scanning the barcode puts it at 200 and the ingredient count is off and the second one, being Lance Peanut bar original 9g protein packaging says 330 and MFP has it at 340 and again the ingredient count is off. The upside to this is I’ve learned to watch what it says and edit the nutrition which a good feature, but the downfall is if I didn’t have the packaging and just searched I wouldn’t know and at that point I’m forced to trust it. I think a lot of the food options need to be updated. Another thing is it doesn’t track the step count very well if at all. The calories through it are always 0. It does however, sync excellently with my Apple Watch activity. Outside of this, I really like this app!.Version: 21.13.0
Life changing if taken seriouslyI started using this app right at the apex of my weight gain during college. I didn’t participate in high school athletics and had virtually zero knowledge of anything nutritionally beyond, “ There’s a place that shoots out 5 dollar burgers.”. I think it’s most important to look at the composition of macronutrients in a few days worth of your particular diet, not necessarily using this as a “calorie counter”. It’s very hard to ignore some of the numbers that will pop out at you if you are diligent and truthful with yourself. It helps to motivate you in a different direction. Even though everything has nutritional information labeled as a requirement, it’s easy ignore until you start to realize that if Item A has 32g of fat and %4000 percent of my daily sodium intake... and that’s my daily between breakfast and lunch... It could totally swing a large portion of my diet by just omitting that one item.
In the past I’ve used this whenever I’ve switched large portions of my dietary ideology. Regardless of if you maintain 100% accuracy after month 3 or 4, I guarantee you will at the very least have a number of eye opening moments if you’ve never scrutinized the make up of your diet..Version: 19.6.0
Can’t find weight logs after updateUPDATED REVIEW: thank you for your reply. It still takes about 4 swipes just to get down to the weight and steps section. Swiping left/right is easy, but I never would’ve found this by chance or by reading the FAQs as they are. The cards are too big to fit on the screen, so swiping up and down doesn’t work well. Also, I don’t see weight totals like before (lost/gained X amount in the selected amount of time) - the charts aren’t especially helpful on the dashboard because again the cards are too big and don’t fit the data height-wise. I hope you put it back into a convenient place in a future update. If so, I’ll update my review and rating because it really was a great app before.
ORIGINAL REVIEW (gave it 2 stars): I’ve searched all over the app, and in the FAQs on the website, but can’t find a place to log my weight anywhere in the new design (I’m using an iPad). It says there’s a card for it on the dashboard, but there’s nothing but 4 cards (3 of which are “premium”). I can’t see my old weight logs either. I can log my food, but a weight loss app is kind of pointless if you can’t keep track of your weight. Really disappointed, hoping it’s reintroduced in a more convenient place (or almost any place at this point)..Version: 22.12.5
Good, but could be better.I’ve had this app for a few years now and have had success losing weight while tracking my food intake. Recently there was a change to the layout of the app and how you see your status and how you enter food, exercise, weight, etc. I do not like this change as it has made the app slower, not as “user friendly” or straight forward for entering weight or exercise. I’ve also had issues with it converting my steps into exercise. This has been going on for a couple months. It has no problem being accurate with my steps (just from my iPhone), but it rarely updates the exercise calories to reflect the steps. I know there are millions of options it has to find as far as food entries, but there are times where I scan and item’s barcode and the nutrition information that pops up does not match the nutritional information on the actual item (even if it finds the correct/exact item in the database). Because of this, I do not plan to purchase the premium package. Im worried that I’ll pay for something that I’ll still have to double check and do the math myself. Even though there are some things I get frustrated with about this app, I still recommend it as a tool to lose weight or just monitor your dietary health..Version: 22.12.5
Great App to kickstart your healthy journey!I’ve been using this app for little over a year now. If you are wanting to start your journey into getting healthy but feel overwhelmed with the idea of meal tracking I’d highly suggest this app! The fact that you can just scan the barcode and then input the serving size you actually use makes it so easy! Plus you get to create your own meals and recipes so they are one click away when you eat them. You also don’t need the fret over calculating the tracking info when you eat out, they already have that listed for most major restaurants.
The only issue I’ve had in the past two weeks or so is the app struggling to record data from my other fitness apps. It’s not been calculating my exercise from the iOS app. I’ve noticed this has been an issue since the most recent update when they changed the setup of the dashboard. Yes I have tried all the recommended steps, reupload all my apps and everything. Make sure it has permission to use the data, etc. Hopefully it’s just a simple bug that can be fixed. I miss having all my healthy data together in one location..Version: 22.10.5
Best calorie tracker that's freeI have tried a few of the free apps, and this one has a nice user interface that is easy to use. The graphs are nice, I have not felt the need for the pay version (free works fine for me). I use it for food logging and send all the data to my Fitbit for the best of both worlds. Few things that I think are missing from this app (and others).
1) It would be nice to track other body measurements like bust, legs, arm etc. Also, it would be nice if you could actually 'track your fitness' and measure goals for that. It is called 'myfitnesspal' after all!
2) It would be nice if you could measure as you increased weight or reps for strength training And see this reported so that you could visualize the accomplishment.
3). I think this isn’t best food tracker out there, but what it’s missing is an ability to track how you ‘feel’. If you could add things like bloated, tired, gassy, headache, or other common terms you could see the impact that certain foods or lack of exercise had on you. And this could motivate you to creat new habits or stick to those your trying to incorporate into your routine..Version: 21.4.6
Recipe Sharing & Net Carbs?I've come back to MFP after a few years and am very pleased at the many improvements in capabilities, user friendliness, standalone mobile usability, social features, and the UI in general. There are 2 glaringly obvious QoL things that are missing.
The first is Recipe Sharing. As it is now, the only way my Hubs and I have found to share entries between people is to copy an Entire meal from someone's diary. It would be much simpler to be able to share the recipe with him on the front end so he could use it as he chooses. It would be even More helpful if we were given a little space to jot down actual directions so these "recipes" weren't solely lists of ingredients and I could recreate things. That may be asking too much though.
The other, much more important issue is that there isn't a setting to switch from displaying Total Carbs to Net Carbs (total Carbs-Fiber). There isn't even a way to show macros and Fiber at the same time to do the math yourself. The custom settings only allow for 3 nutrient selections (you'd need 4 to show Carbs, Fiber, Fat, Protein). This is something that needs to be updated ASAP.
Oh, and fyi if you're using a macro based method know that you'll need premium to get access to those tracking features..Version: 7.23
Inaccurate PercentagesI’ve used this app and other similar apps on and off throughout the years, and I’ve noticed little things that annoy me about them that always eventually makes me stop using them for a while. This time, it seems to be the calorie and macro percentages.
Yesterday I was excited to see how much protein I got because I ate more than usual, and I’m normally low on protein, according to this app at least. When I checked the macros summary page it said only 14% of my macros yesterday were from protein, along with 33% from fat and 53% from carbs. What confused me was that it also said I got in 60g of protein yesterday and 61g of fat. So why were the percentages so far off? When I calculated it myself I got about 18% for both fat and protein and 64% for carbs. Maybe they calculate it in some special way I don’t know about and those percentages aren’t what I think they are, but I’m doubtful. And even if this was the case then that just means the app should be more clear.
Also, this is more nit picky but on the nutrients page it said I got 61g of protein and 62g of fat. That probably just has more to do with the way it was rounded I guess, but shouldn’t it be the same way all throughout the app? And for those percentages I see no excuse. Makes me wonder what else on this app is inaccurate..Version: 19.6.10
Pretty great, easy to useI started using this app when the USDA discontinued SuperTracker in 2017. Really simple to use imo, has a huge database and the barcode scanner makes it even easier to find things. You can also create your own recipes if you don’t want to add ingredients one by one every time. They provide a lot of free health articles too, which can be really useful if you’re just getting into nutrition. Overall I think this app is really helpful and user friendly; but I have two main complaints:
1. For some reason the app has always been a pretty heavy battery drain; I thought maybe it was my old phone but this one is only a week old and has a similar issue
2. The original macro colors were blue carbs, red fat, and green protein. These have changed multiple times over the years but the most recent has switched fat from red to purple and protein from purple to red, which makes it hard to use at a glance. Personally I just think the original colors were easier to distinguish from one another
** Update on this point: please let us choose what colors we want macros to be, the constant changing with every update is really inconvenient. Thanks.Version: 21.23.5
I freaking love this appI have only had this app for around 2 hours and I am already I love with it. I am 13 years old, I weigh 201 pounds, and I am super insecure about my body. This app has so many options and within 1 hour I already got to do everything that I planned on doing. This app lets you lose weight, gain weight, keep a calorie count, make homemade workouts, let you talk to others about each of your successes and how you are personally doing. My favorite part about this app is that you have the choice to pay for more options, and if you don’t want to do that you can just stay to the free one which is just as good. I have been trying to loose weight for 4 years now and I have struggled with my weight since I was born. And over the years I have seen many doctors, been on many diets, played all the sports, tried all the apps, and never once have I seen something that I can’t wait to do/use everyday. I will use this app for one month and update you all in one month on my progress. Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you get this app I hope that you have some great success. BYEE.Version: 20.23.5
Such a valuable app, and I mean even the free versionI love this app. It is a little tedious to have to track all my food, but it has been so worth it. The app is easy to use. Takes a minute to get to know how everything works and all the possibilities, but really quite simple to use. I have now used it for several years, on and off. This time around, I have found it makes me so much more conscious of the snacking I have been justifying. I now realize just how many extra calories those stupid little snacks, and the little bit of soda, or the mini-chocolates actually contribute to my daily intake. Way more calories than they are worth in nutrition. Accordingly, I have REDUCED my decadent indulgences, and am already losing weight! Those marketing masters, making mini-chocolates so you think, “It’s just little. It can be many calories!” The problem is those mini’s are just as addicting as the full-sized candy bars. So...I can’t just eat one. This app has put the truth in my face. It is now up to me to decide whether those indulgences are worth spending that many calories on. I am getting stronger and stronger!
Thanks, Under Armour, for making such great apps for health..Version: 20.16.0
Must have Fitness AppMyFitnessPal is an incredible tool for getting a handle on your health and fitness. The app makes it easy to log the food you eat. The calories as well as the grams of each macronutrient. There are too many features to list, but a couple deliver tremendous value. MyFitnessPal automatically updates from my Strava feed, so all my running, biking and strength workouts automatically show up. The food database is very extensive, but you have to know something about the nutritional content of food because some of the food items submitted by users are pretty sketchy. There is, a huge catalog of verified food items, so with a little bit of comparison, you get some accurate data.
I do intermittent fasting, where three days a week I eat a very low calorie diet and the other days, I eat normally. MyFitnessPal doesn’t like that and warns me that I’m not eating enough on my low-calorie days. The week view, however, smooths out the daily peaks and values and you can see your averages over time.
MyFitnessPal is a valuable tool in my health and fitness program. Along with my Tomtom Cardio watch and Strava, it delivers the metrics I need to stay on track..Version: 7.29.1
Works wonders when used correctly!I’ve been a MyFitnessPal user for 6 years now. I want to start by saying when I first started using it, I was using this app religiously. I managed to lose 15 pounds in 3 months. However, I was losing weight for all the wrong reasons and found myself tracking my diet and making sure I was only eating 1500 calories a day when I should have been getting 2000. As soon as I stopped using it, I kept the same weight until I went to college. Freshman 15 is a real thing and that is exactly what happened. I gained all my weight back but it wasn’t just fat, I was gaining muscle too because I found myself weightlifting regularly. 2 years later, I found myself big with a slightly higher than normal fat percentage. That is when I started using my fitness pal again. Now I use this app correctly, and have been losing a moderate and healthy amount of fat a month, by keeping track of my macronutrients and making sure everything that I eat align with my goals. This app does exactly that. Now I have gotten into a routine of logging my food. It used to be a chore, but now it’s a habit and it’s a habit I’m happy to have!.Version: 19.7.1
Technically a horrible appOn principal, this app is great. The method of calorie counting is the only way I know how to lose weight and maintain it. My fitness pal makes that possible. But from a technical standpoint, it’s awful. It’s basic stuff. It freezes up all the time, or it’s slow at the very least. It’s search is kinda bad. When I search recent foods, it doesn’t seem to always remember them or it’s as if I have to type it in verbatim, all words and the brand in order. At the very least it should remember something I ate a few weeks ago. Seems like it doesn’t. There’s a lot of clutter in the database. For example I can do without other people’s recipes that say “1 serving,” How do I know how big a serving is? It’s interface is weird and pretty much outdated, it’s hard to find features.
And yes, to be fair this is an app that I’m using every time I eat, so I’m holding it to high standards. But this is why it should be better. Counting calories is annoying, stupid, and it takes too long. I need something sooooo streamlined. I’ve been using it for years and I’m so tired of it. Seriously, exhausted. It’s known to be the most popular app for its purpose, so that’s why I use it. I’m doing research for a new one. We’ll see what I find. I might not beat it, I don’t know..Version: 19.12.6
Life changingI first started using this app when I began bodybuilding. I would have never gained over 15 pounds in muscle and completely changed my body if it wasn’t for myfitnesspal. A few years later, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I had to alter my diet entirely. I had no energy to even work out for 3 months while I waited for my body to respond to the changes I made so I stopped using the app, as I only associated it with tracking my macros for bodybuilding. I also had no knowledge of how little calories the majority of my extremely clean diet consisted of, and because of that, I ended up losing 16 pounds. All those years of consistent hard work, gone...just like that. After hearing this alarming number, I immediately started using myfitnesspal again to gain my weight back. I have not only gained the weight back, I have learned so much about the new foods I am eating. I am also happy to say my health is finally turning around and I am working out again!! While my doctor was the one who saved my life, I this think myfitnesspal had an incredibly strong positive impact as well. And for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart..Version: 18.6.0
Used to be 5 starsI love this app still do there isn’t a better alternative. So it saddens me to say this but I’ve discovered a big problem that apparently has been an issue since at least 2015. I just recently got into tracking my macros and apparently for at least 7 years now for some people the macro tracking will not work. I set my macro percentages up and everything’s good I go back to my Home Screen and macro values will not update. This isn’t limited to the app either the values will not update on the website either. I’ve tried everything uninstalling reinstalling, powering phone on and off, logging out and back in on both the app and website nothing works. One example is my protein value in my macros is set to 50% which should be 280g. However everywhere else that value shows up except for where you set your macros the value for protein is over 400g. I sent in a help ticket on the app but judging from what I’ve seen on message boards and forums plus the amount of time this problem has existed (at least 7 years that’s just crazy) I don’t think I’ll be getting much help or resolution for this problem at all..Version: 21.9.6
Such a helpful app!!I've been using MyFitnessPal since February at the recommendation of my trainer. I am 45 and have never really had to worry about my weigh or diet until recently. I had put on 10 pounds and was shocked to discover it wasn't easy to loose (it had always been easy before). With this app, it shows you it's all about math :-). I've lost almost all the weight I want to loose, and the reason I haven't lost it all is because I eat too much lots of days (or I should say, I eat too many high cal junk foods instead of protein and veggies that will fill me up without all the calories). I am eating much healthier though and have learned to fill up on the healthy lower calorie foods most of the time. I feel great!! I'm 5'6' and 125 pounds at the moment. Still a work in progress, but I love this app and am so glad my trainer turned me on to it!
I also recommended this app to my brother, and he has been much more conscientious with his food intake. He has completely turned his health around and lost 30 pounds! Thirty pounds in five months! He is 5'10' and now weighs 145 pounds. He looks great and is eating so healthy!.Version: 7.23
Good but glitchyDef a good app I’ve been using for years! Does the trick and has a lot of food information (calorie-wise). I like being able to copy foods from another day cuz I tend to eat the same foods often. The downside is that the app freezes so often when logging foods! I have to close the app repeatedly just to log the food. I wonder if this is their way of making you go for the paid version? I think it may be the moving ads that cause the freezing. It is really annoying and if there was a better app, I’d probably switch. It also gives me a high calorie “bank” when I have a high number of steps, it seems too high. So high that I don’t log my workouts because then I’d have over 1k extra calories that I could eat but this is misleading. We arent supposed to see those extra calories and assume we have a free ticket to eat another 5 slices of pizza! That’s going to negate any workout you’ve done. I know this but I don’t know about others who may be misled. I tried to read their definition of negative calorie balance but its written for someone who probably majored in kinesiology or something at Harvard. Geez can you write it in layman’s terms?! Otherwise, good app..Version: 19.4.5
Very convenient and effective!I started using this app as part of my lifestyle change to lose 100 lbs. I have used this in conjunction with other things such as my Garmin. It is very convenient to be able to sync this with my Garmin so I don’t have to add my activities or calories burned. I love that I’m able to scan the things I eat and easily add things that do not have a barcode to scan, a must for this single (and very busy) mom of 4! Being able to add my own meal recipes has been wonderful as well; recipes that’s have been passed down from family (Mexican dishes) which have always been hard to keep track of is no longer a problem. This app, I’m certain, has allowed me to enjoy the foods I want and be mindful of my consumptions and portion sizes. It really has helped put a perspective on my own habits and also had helped me identify how my body gains and looses weight, which I feel is different for everyone and is imperative when trying to lose weight. I lost 75 lbs just by adding this app and of coarse increasing my activity levels. A++ and a 5 star rating from me! Great job developers!.Version: 7.33
My Fitness Pal ReviewStill learning how to use it but it is a GREAT APP so far! If possible, it would be nice to have an occupation category to be able to see how many calories you would approximately burn at work.
Also, would be nice if you were able to share recipes so you don't have to enter all ingredients manually, twice. For example my husband and I are using the app and eating the same dishes..Version: 7.23
Shame on you!Shame on you My Fitness Pal for forcing users to consent to sharing their data if they want to use the app. If you don’t want your data shared My Fitness Pal wont let you use their app! They don’t even tell you who they are sharing your data with!.Version: 19.5.0
GreatWonderful way to track meals and monitor calories..Version: 7.23

Way too expensive!I really like this app. Although not perfect, it has many features I personally find helpful. I used to pay for a premium membership, but was disgusted to come back after a long break from the app to see that it is now $28 CAD per month. Not a chance you will ever get a penny out of me at that price..Version: 22.3.5
SlowThis app has crippling performance and stability issues. Also the “onbording” instructions can’t be dismissed all at once, which is annoying. Just get me to the app and I’ll find out how it works!.Version: 20.3.0
Tw eating disordersI like this app. but you know what i have? anorexia. in fact a lot or probably even most of the people who use this app or apps like it have an eating disorder of some sort. so to all healthy people thinking about getting this app just don’t you don’t need to count calories and your beautiful just the way you are. to everyone else who already has it delete the app it isn’t helpful and if you have an eating disorder please seek help. so yeah wether the creators of this app intended for it to promote or aid eating disorders does not matter what matters is that it does..Version: 20.22.5
Too many ads!!The app is decent, but the push to premium is over the top. It feels like 1998 banner ads all over again..Version: 22.17.5
