My Fitness Pal

Do you know how many calories you consume in a day? How much protein? Carbs? Fats? Sodium? Do you know how many calories you work off?

Do you want to?

If you do, there’s “My Fitness Pal,” a free app to help you track what goes in, and what comes off.

This app has a database of more than 5 million foods (including dishes from popular restaurants), and allows you to save your recipes and meal combinations. It also estimates — based on your age, weight, height, and general activity level — the number of calories you burn doing different activities.

Whether you are trying to lose weight, gain weight, maintain your current weight, or just be more informed about what you eat and how effectively you exercise, this app is a user-friendly tool. I love it.

If, however, you identify with the woman in the cartoon above, this app is either not for you, or you should keep your experience with it a personal one.
