My Fitness Pal

While I was in Lake Tahoe, I had some cabin down time in between sledding runs and got to know my Droid phone a little better.  I don't know about you, but when I'm on vacation, I tend to consume more calories than usual.  So while looking through some of the apps on the Droid, I found 'My Fitness Pal'.

My Fitness Pal is a free app for Droid phones, if you have an iPhone, they have a similar one called 'Lose It' and these are apps that keep track of your calories on a daily basis.  If you have a certain amount of weight you would like to lose, you just punch in your current weight, height, age, level of fitness and how much you want to lose, and it'll come up with a per day calorie plan for you.

My Fitness Pal has over 600,000 foods in it's data base.  You just search for the food item and a list of them pops up where you can just choose the correct item and it tallies the calories for you.

I'm not a big calorie counter, but sitting in a cabin on vacation, if you're like me, you tend to think of these things.  So I downloaded it.  You can also log into it on your home computer and it syncs to your Droid.  Or if you don't have a Droid, you can just use it from your PC.

So here's my breakfast and lunch.  {just click on the screen shot to enlarge}

I thought this was a handy-dandy personal fitness tool.  I love hearing about apps that people really enjoy and I enjoy this one, so I'm sharing with you.

I am so addicted to my apps, and for a while, I did use a similar app to keep track of my workout and food. But laziness took hold (at least when it comes to inputting my data)! I really admire your tenacity here!

Hi Liren, I'm just finding out all about apps and love them also! This one just keeps me on track and like you said, if I'm not too lazy to input the data, it's a huge help....because who wants to log in more calories than is needed!
