The season is changing. Now is a good time to reflect on the changes you want to make in the coming year.
Whether your new year starts in January, September, or any other time, your top resolutions are likely "lose weight" and "get in shape."
Unfortunately, weight loss is not a quick or easy process. Shedding pounds takes time, effort, and determination.
MyFitnessPal has several tools to help you take the weight off and keep it off for good. Best of all, they are FREE with an easy online registration.
MyFitnessPal is a trifecta of diet aids. It is an online calorie counter, diet plan, and exercise journal. Studies show that you are more likely to lose weight if you consistently track the calories you eat and burn. According to studies, record keeping may actually double your weight loss.
Successful diets and exercise plans encourage you to keep a food diary and exercise log. However, recording everything can be cumbersome, time consuming, and seemingly impossible. MyFitnessPal cannot do the work for you, but it can make your job a little easier.
MyFitnessPal Tracks the Calories You Eat and Burn
Losing weight is hard work. The workout equipment you see in ads and infomercials are often gimmicks. Fad diets and rapid weight loss systems are not the answer.
Only time, effort, and commitment to your goals can help you shed those extra pounds. MyFitnessPal helps you track your progress.
This online calorie counter gives you the tools you need to track the foods you eat and the calories you burn on your way to permanent weight loss. The website has a food journal, exercise log, message boards, and a blog with diet news and tips.
The site also has calculators for recipe-nutrition, basal metabolic rate (BMR), body mass index (BMI), and heart rate, as well as badges and tickers for your personal website or blog. A handy mobile app keeps everything at your fingertips.
