I couldn't live without... Myfitnesspal

What couldn't you live without?

myfitnesspal – a website and free app to help monitor your calorie intake and nutrition.

In a nutshell, what is it?

Myfitnesspal allows you to record and track your calorie intake, set goals for weight loss or gain and see how much fat, sugars, salt etc. you consume. It even has its own forums where you can connect with other members for a little encouragement if needed.

What’s your favourite feature?

Possibly the fact that the free app is so easy to use. You can type in a food and view it quickly in a database. This makes logging the calories incredibly easy!

What makes it unique?

Its simplicity. The app has no advertising (not bad for a freebie!) and you can log in using your Facebook account. It's also good for logging your food and exercise on the move.

Does anything let it down?

It isn’t the prettiest interface and the app can be slightly bugging when syncing – but it’s a free app and super simple to use.

Any secret tips for new converts?

Check out the forums, they are full of great posts including people's before and after pics and great recipe ideas.

Where can I find it and can I afford it?

You can download for free at the App store or on Android or view it on the website.
