MyFitnessPal - FREE Online Food & Exercise Tracking

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope your holidays were as wonderful as mine. We had a lot of great family time and that's what I love the most.

I was introduced to this neat tool today - I know many of us resolve to get healthy or lose weight with the turn of the new year, and this looks like a good one... plus it's FREE.

It's called MyFitnessPal. It's an online food & exercise tracking system, but it looks (so far) a little less complicated than the ones I have tried in the past. What I like so far is that their food database seems to include everything I will need, so it won't take a lot of time to enter my information. That inconvenience has derailed my plans more than once, so I think MyFitnessPal and I will get along well! Studies have shown that people who record what they eat lose more weight.

Like I said, it's FREE to join, plus you can use it online or download their free app to your iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Windows or Android phone. How much easier can it get?? Just sign up, set your goals, and get busy!

Here's to a healthier 'us' in 2012 and beyond...

Thanks, Katie for sharing MyFitnessPal with me!

P.S. If you set up an account and are looking for some accountability, you can add your friends or let me know below in the comments and we can be friends on MyFitnessPal and help each other achieve our goals!
