3 reasons to track your nutrition with MyFitnessPal

1. You’ll learn which foods fuel you best.

Log your food easily from MyFitnessPal’s database of 14 million foods, then let your app do the thinking. Quickly see the nutrition breakdown of any individual food, or how your whole meal, day, or week measures up. When you track what you eat, you learn fast which foods support your goals.

2. You’ll practice eating mindfulness.

Everyone who tracks food recalls a time they looked at their data and realised exactly what was causing them to feel [sluggish/ hangry/ better than ever]. The best results come when you focus less on calories, and more on how you feel. Make a mental note, or jot down your feelings in the MyFitnessPal app, so you can begin to connect the dots.

Food tracking is one of the best ways to reach your goals.

People who track what they eat are more likely to reach and maintain their goal than people who don’t. In fact, one study* showed that self-monitoring was a top determining factor for achieving and maintaining significant weight loss.
