When my friend Alison lost 7 lbs in one month using My Fitness Pal, I decided to try it.
Right away I saw the utility.
I realized I had no clue how many calories I was actually eating per day…OR how often I “forgot” I ate something. Logging my intake and learning caloric values also helped me make better choices.
For example, seeing ¼-cup of almonds has the same calories as 2 CUPS of blueberries? WOW.
All good things ...
