Great database of food items, along with Barcode scanning or entering details off the label, if not in the database. Conversion between imperial and metric can crash it. Good integration with other apps, such as Withings but not Samsung S Health for activity synching, i.e. counting steps. No calorie breakdown for non-cardio exercises. Good, solid program but needs updates. Would like to see the time logged. Recent update removed Frequent Items but reinstall fixed this.
I used this app exclusively with the supervision of my obgyn as I was pregnant with my son. I was very overweight and my dr cautioned me not to gain much weight with the pregnancy. With the help of myfitnesspal, I was able to actually lose weight safely AND had a beautiful healthy baby! I'm now using it to lose weight and to eat healthy. I would recommend this app to anyone wanting to monitor their eating habits and change them for the better.
Could sync better with the FitBit app than it does. Overall it's good. I wish there were a low-carb/keto-friendly version that didn't constantly nag about fat intake. I do like the barcode-scanning feature. What happened to my Recent/Frequent lists of foods though? They disappeared with the 2/19/17 update, and no new foods are being saved! MFP, you MUST bring back these lists! Your rating from me will remain at 2 stars until you do.
I've lost 40 lbs and kept it off for 2 years. I still faithfully log my foods. It make me aware and accountable for every calorie I decide to consume. Worked great until tonight. Now won't let me log in anything. Just keeps saying app has stopped. This it and ilk go back to 5 stars.
Edit 2-19-17 Uninstalling and reinstalling the app has brought back my frequent and recent list. Edit 2-15-17 Why is my recent and frequent list all empty? Please fix this please and thank you. There's need to be a drink category instead of just water. I understand that you can add the drink with your food but it would be nice to have it on its own. Other than that I like the app so far.
Update : Uninstall then reinstall & then frequent & recent foods came back. Loved it, until I updated & all my frequent & recent foods are gone! Back to scanning everything. Also, doesn't track calorie burning for strength training, which I can understand due to it being different for all, but I'd love to at least have the option to enter some general numbers. Other than that I love it.
