Need a Fitness Pal?

Trying to eat healthier? Trying to lose weight or cut calories out of your daily intake?

Whether you are on a diet or not, sometimes you need an idea of how many calories a particular food has or how many calories you burned doing a particular activity. You may just want to lose a few pounds and need some support from someone going through the same thing.

No matter the reason, you will want to check out the FREE calorie counter at MyFitnessPal.com. Membership is 100% free and there are so many features that can be used alone or in combination with any type of diet.

Let's say that you've started walking every day. Login to MyFitnessPal, click on the exercise tab and enter walking and the minutes and you'll get an instant reading of calories burned.

Maybe you want to cut a few calories out of your daily intake. MyFitnessPal has a food database that will tell you how many calories a particular food has as well as give you nutritional information just like you'd read on a package label. You can create a daily journal of foods you eat and see where your calories are coming from making it easier to see where to cut calories out of your daily intake.

There are many more features like the food and exercise diaries to keep track of long-term goals and the forums where you can chat with other members. Don't forget to sign up for their email newsletter as well.

MyFitnessPal is a 100% free site that will surely be a benefit to anyone interested in overall health.

Hey, thanks for this. I used to be on Weight Watchers On-line but ended up canceling it. It had a fodd and activity counter that I miss. This site will come in handy
