MyFitnessPal is a free smartphone app and website that tracks diet and exercise to determine optimal nutrients and caloric intake for the users' goals. In a Consumer Reports diet rating, MyFitnessPal was rated the best free program (with 83 points) in overall satisfaction, "maintenance, calorie awareness, and food variety".

The user may enter the name of the food or scan the barcode to find the item in a large database of over 3 million foods or may select foods from a list of most frequently eaten foods. Dietitian Michelle Eckhart says a bonus for dieters using such tools is that "numbers don't lie, and I think when people can really see the reality - the numbers - it helps them to adjust their behaviors more quickly." The same food item may contain several variation of the caloric count possibly depending on which country the food item was purchased.

MyFitnessPal has different exercises and sometimes the same exercise at different intensities or speeds. The user enters the number of minutes spent exercising and the calories spent is calculated. The calories spent on the exercise is added to the total number of calories that the user should eat per day.

MyFitness Pal is great in that you can track the nutritional value of food down to the amount of protein and fiber it contains. You can also track how many calories your burn from various exercises.

The downsides:
-The food is all put in from users, so the calories are all over the place.
-Apparently strength training burns no calories. WTF?!
-The online community is just awful. Thousands of uninformed people sharing fitness and diet advice they learned from pinterest, spouting horrifically unhealthy practices. Myfitness Pal can't help what people share, but jeeze, these people are morons.

All in all, I think it's helpful for people who are starting to get healthy, and to help them stay on track.

Do not like. I do not like you.

It takes forever to log my food and exercises. Speaking of exercise, you don't think the lifting weights burns calories? You lost your credibility.

Useless. Useless.

And it isn't easy to navigate. So I'll go use LoseIt! or something that is more intuitive than this site.

For the most part, I love Asel Art Supply as a store front, but as an online catalogue, Holy Smokes, I have never seen such sucks.

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.


The History of Byzantium

The History of Byzantium

by KrisA

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...
