MyFitnessPal App User Reviews & Comments
MyFitnessPal free appJust started using this app about a month ago. Used to use Diabetes app and loved it, but no longer supported. There are four problems with this app: 1)You need to type in the brand name of all recipe ingredients-the list of choices isn’t in alphabetical order by brand so it takes forever to find correct nutritional information; 2) For homemade recipes, the number of ingredients is limited, so you have to split up recipe information to account for all calories; 3) There is no way to edit a recipe, so make sure you have all of the ingredient information entered correctly (my fault, here.); 4) This app doesn’t include fiber calculations, so doesn’t show corrected carbohydrates-if it did I would give it five stars, even with problems 1-3, above... It does give suggestions of trends in what you often eat together as a quicker way to add your intake at a given meal. Also has a nice weight loss trend feature which helps you see how much you’ll lose if you keep up calorie burning activities. Does contain ads at free level-no big deal for me... I understand that the Premium app ($$) doesn’t contain ads..Version: 7.32
It worksCICO (calories in calories out) works. Even if you’re not planning on changing your eating habits, it helps to just track what you’re eating with MFP. There’s a whole world of nutrition and forums, videos, websites, cook books and apps dedicated to this type of thing. You can get into it all by starting with a calorie counting app like this one. I don’t use any of MFP’s features except for the calorie tracking ones. I do use the “recipe” feature a lot as it lets me portion out big batches appropriately. For example, earlier today I knew to portion a beef stew I made into 11 servings so they’d be at 538 calories each. How would you get that kind of insight without carefully tracking he ingredients of a recipe? You wouldn’t. My one complaint is that I’ve had the recipe app crash MULTIPLE times while I’m in the middle of cooking. Obviously this is a pain because I can’t just remember the itemized list of ingredients in painstakingly measured grams. My workaround is to save every few additions so I don’t lose too much if it crashes. And it shouldn’t be crashing, I’m using MFP on an iPhone 12 Pro. If it’s going to be an ideal user experience anywhere, it should be on this. Can’t imagine how much worse it is on inferior hardware. Get your $;[email protected]/ together MFP devs, figure out how to not let your app crash and lose data..Version: 21.6.5
It was great... till it wasn’tHi there, I decided to get MyFitnessPal to aid me in losing weight. And it worked, the app I mean, for the first 50 days. But yesterday, the fiftieth day, I went on there, and the app wouldn’t load. It said updating, so I was just thinking it was going to update, and be ready in a few minutes. Nope! I give it twenty minutes, look back at my phone, which I’ve left on the screen, and it still says updating. Then I think, oh it might be a long update, so I give it even more time. Now, I’m about to go to bed, this is almost forty-five minutes later, and I check again. STILL UPDATING! I was hoping to give a good review, but I’m glad I waited till now. This app was at least good for fifty days, so if you’re looking for something short term then this is great for you. But this app really needs to work on it. I have no idea if it’s just a bug or if this is the apps way of telling me to get premium. All I now is that I have logged for fifty days in a row, and because this app quit on me, I can’t log fifty-one. Please fix, and I might change my rating to something a bit more, positive. Also the only reason it has those two stars is because of the first fifty days. Now it’s just done..Version: 19.10.5
Great for tracking meals. Big bugs.This app has been useful for tracking my meals over the last year but there are some issues. The app will read and write the *same* data from Apple Health, screwing up your weight in both apps. I always update my weight in Apple health but when you look at the data in the app it shows the source of the data and after every entry in Apple, there is an identical entry written by MFP. Sometimes this is a day after another entry and this especially screws up my data. Doesn’t seem there is an easy way to fix and has increasingly become a frustrating problem. The good features are the ability to see your data at a glance under the progress tab that is easy to get to and shows progress in weight, steps, and other body measurements. I have tried a few other apps that have a much nicer UI (like Senza) but while it looks great, the design is a bit more complicated to use. KetoDiet has much more relevant, diet-inclusive recipes than MFP but it probably would not be as useful to someone on a different diet. Overall this is the best app for most people that may be on any number of diets, as you are able to track macros and calories (even from many restaurants) quickly and add workouts. Those are the basics of most body management plans and this app does it best..Version: 20.24.6
Must have Fitness AppMyFitnessPal is an incredible tool for getting a handle on your health and fitness. The app makes it easy to log the food you eat. The calories as well as the grams of each macronutrient. There are too many features to list, but a couple deliver tremendous value. MyFitnessPal automatically updates from my Strava feed, so all my running, biking and strength workouts automatically show up. The food database is very extensive, but you have to know something about the nutritional content of food because some of the food items submitted by users are pretty sketchy. There is, a huge catalog of verified food items, so with a little bit of comparison, you get some accurate data. I do intermittent fasting, where three days a week I eat a very low calorie diet and the other days, I eat normally. MyFitnessPal doesn’t like that and warns me that I’m not eating enough on my low-calorie days. The week view, however, smooths out the daily peaks and values and you can see your averages over time. MyFitnessPal is a valuable tool in my health and fitness program. Along with my Tomtom Cardio watch and Strava, it delivers the metrics I need to stay on track..Version: 7.29.1
Recipe Sharing & Net Carbs?I've come back to MFP after a few years and am very pleased at the many improvements in capabilities, user friendliness, standalone mobile usability, social features, and the UI in general. There are 2 glaringly obvious QoL things that are missing. The first is Recipe Sharing. As it is now, the only way my Hubs and I have found to share entries between people is to copy an Entire meal from someone's diary. It would be much simpler to be able to share the recipe with him on the front end so he could use it as he chooses. It would be even More helpful if we were given a little space to jot down actual directions so these "recipes" weren't solely lists of ingredients and I could recreate things. That may be asking too much though. The other, much more important issue is that there isn't a setting to switch from displaying Total Carbs to Net Carbs (total Carbs-Fiber). There isn't even a way to show macros and Fiber at the same time to do the math yourself. The custom settings only allow for 3 nutrient selections (you'd need 4 to show Carbs, Fiber, Fat, Protein). This is something that needs to be updated ASAP. Oh, and fyi if you're using a macro based method know that you'll need premium to get access to those tracking features..Version: 7.23
Inaccurate PercentagesI’ve used this app and other similar apps on and off throughout the years, and I’ve noticed little things that annoy me about them that always eventually makes me stop using them for a while. This time, it seems to be the calorie and macro percentages. Yesterday I was excited to see how much protein I got because I ate more than usual, and I’m normally low on protein, according to this app at least. When I checked the macros summary page it said only 14% of my macros yesterday were from protein, along with 33% from fat and 53% from carbs. What confused me was that it also said I got in 60g of protein yesterday and 61g of fat. So why were the percentages so far off? When I calculated it myself I got about 18% for both fat and protein and 64% for carbs. Maybe they calculate it in some special way I don’t know about and those percentages aren’t what I think they are, but I’m doubtful. And even if this was the case then that just means the app should be more clear. Also, this is more nit picky but on the nutrients page it said I got 61g of protein and 62g of fat. That probably just has more to do with the way it was rounded I guess, but shouldn’t it be the same way all throughout the app? And for those percentages I see no excuse. Makes me wonder what else on this app is inaccurate..Version: 19.6.10
Amazing Concept. Atrocious NavigationThe idea behind this app is great. It is Do helpful for losing weight and building muscle, and monitoring your friends’ progress. But, the navigation is absolutely horrible. The app is sluggish, and it’s confusing to get around to different features in the app. Certain things like scanning an item’s barcode take WAY too many taps to get to the right spot. And I use the barcode feature a lot, but it’s annoyingly buried within several layers of pages. It and other features like the restaurant location tool are just buried way too deep. You should be able to get to them from the first page you open because I’m opening this app many times a day for only a few minutes to log something and it’s so annoying having to navigate through so many different pages to get to the features I use the most. Please redesign. It’s been exactly the same for years now. And get rid of some features. The developers are trying to do way too much with what should be a simple app. Or at least bury the less used features and make them harder to get to rather than the different food logging tools..Version: 7.34
Lots of functionality, but not a very good appThis app is a good utility, but if they gave the UI and functionality a bit more polish here and there it could be great. Some things are just clumsy and/or glitchy which makes using it throughout the day kind of a pain. I’ll continue to use it, but as other similar apps arise I’ll definitely keep checking them out as there’s nothing really tying me to this one. Some examples: it repeatedly asks me to allow Apple Heath access even though it’s already got it (and is already using the data it gets from there). It reads my weight and then writes it back to Apple Health resulting in duplicate data points. I couldn’t get it to integrate reliably with UnderArmor’s (pretty terrible) other apps. It doesn’t make use of 3D Touch, which could make moving/peeking/editing items in my diary much faster. It’s got visual glitches along the top and bottom of the iPhone X screen. I turned on the negative calorie adjustment, but that was REALLY glitchy, sporadically giving me a negative calorie adjustment > 1000 before updating to < 100 a couple minutes later. Googling this shows the issue has been around for a very long time, but they haven’t addressed it. I’m paying for pro because they cripple the basic set of features so much, but at this point I definitely feel no loyalty to the app, and I wonder what they are doing with all that subscription money..Version: 7.37.1
I freaking love this appI have only had this app for around 2 hours and I am already I love with it. I am 13 years old, I weigh 201 pounds, and I am super insecure about my body. This app has so many options and within 1 hour I already got to do everything that I planned on doing. This app lets you lose weight, gain weight, keep a calorie count, make homemade workouts, let you talk to others about each of your successes and how you are personally doing. My favorite part about this app is that you have the choice to pay for more options, and if you don’t want to do that you can just stay to the free one which is just as good. I have been trying to loose weight for 4 years now and I have struggled with my weight since I was born. And over the years I have seen many doctors, been on many diets, played all the sports, tried all the apps, and never once have I seen something that I can’t wait to do/use everyday. I will use this app for one month and update you all in one month on my progress. Thank you for taking the time to read this and if you get this app I hope that you have some great success. BYEE.Version: 20.23.5
Nutritional informationI really like this app and I believe it to be the best one available to anyone who is trying to eat healthier, exercise more, and keep track of the different nutrients we are consuming in our diet. I only have one request. I know that there are a lot of your clients who are on keto/Low carb/Atkins programs. I see under most all of the nutritional information that you have broken down the carbs so that you can see fiber, sugars and sugar alcohols. For some reason when I click on the nutrients for the day, everything is shown there except for the sugar alcohols. The reason I ask for that is I could easily calculate the net carbs for the day if the total nutrients for the day also show not just the fiber but also the sugar alcohols. Then it would be very simple to calculate net carbs without looking at every individual item I ate for the day. The only other alternative would be if you just calculated the net carbs for us and added that line to the nutritional information. Just saying..Version: 19.12.6
Works wonders when used correctly!I’ve been a MyFitnessPal user for 6 years now. I want to start by saying when I first started using it, I was using this app religiously. I managed to lose 15 pounds in 3 months. However, I was losing weight for all the wrong reasons and found myself tracking my diet and making sure I was only eating 1500 calories a day when I should have been getting 2000. As soon as I stopped using it, I kept the same weight until I went to college. Freshman 15 is a real thing and that is exactly what happened. I gained all my weight back but it wasn’t just fat, I was gaining muscle too because I found myself weightlifting regularly. 2 years later, I found myself big with a slightly higher than normal fat percentage. That is when I started using my fitness pal again. Now I use this app correctly, and have been losing a moderate and healthy amount of fat a month, by keeping track of my macronutrients and making sure everything that I eat align with my goals. This app does exactly that. Now I have gotten into a routine of logging my food. It used to be a chore, but now it’s a habit and it’s a habit I’m happy to have!.Version: 19.7.1
Really helpsThis app has been what I have been lacking in my fitness journey. I’m finally able to see little differences in my body because I’m keeping to my calorie deficit. I have the app connected to Apple Health, but isn’t capable of connecting with the FitBod app which is what I use. The only thing that I’ve experienced is that frequently I will refresh the app to add in my workout and it will subtract the calories leaving me with even less for the day. Usually I will close and re-open the app but it hasn’t been working lately. I re-installed it in the hopes of it getting fixed. EDIT: Once re-installed it worked for the next couple times I opened the app but now is taking longer to actually load the exercise calories burned at all. Upon re-opening the app time and time again it still doesn’t add the calories burned from exercise. UPDATE: It appears that my “HealthKit” was turned off to sharing information and that’s why the exercise hasn’t been logging. I changed my rating to 5 stars because this app is doing exactly what it needs to..Version: 19.7.1
Good but glitchyDef a good app I’ve been using for years! Does the trick and has a lot of food information (calorie-wise). I like being able to copy foods from another day cuz I tend to eat the same foods often. The downside is that the app freezes so often when logging foods! I have to close the app repeatedly just to log the food. I wonder if this is their way of making you go for the paid version? I think it may be the moving ads that cause the freezing. It is really annoying and if there was a better app, I’d probably switch. It also gives me a high calorie “bank” when I have a high number of steps, it seems too high. So high that I don’t log my workouts because then I’d have over 1k extra calories that I could eat but this is misleading. We arent supposed to see those extra calories and assume we have a free ticket to eat another 5 slices of pizza! That’s going to negate any workout you’ve done. I know this but I don’t know about others who may be misled. I tried to read their definition of negative calorie balance but its written for someone who probably majored in kinesiology or something at Harvard. Geez can you write it in layman’s terms?! Otherwise, good app..Version: 19.4.5
Almost useless for diabeticsThis health/fitness/diet app claims to be comprehensive, but has a huge gap in its user experience for diabetics. There is no way to input blood sugar readings in real time or to integrate readings from glucose monitors on here. Given how tied to diet and macro nutrients diabetes is, you would think this would've been a basic aspect of the app already - or an add-on that could pop up along with adding food or exercise. I've been a MyFitnessPal member for years and do appreciate the detail, massive database, and ability to input your own recipes you get for free. The meal time stamps it already offers with Premium would be really useful for tracking blood sugar, but nope, the only way to track that is manually adding a bunch of blood sugar categories, and then tracking them under progress, like it's your weight. This is useless when you have to do it 4 times a day or more at different times, and you can't look back at sugar levels as part of your diary (linked to your diet). Do the manufacturers just assume that people interested in fitness and diabetics are mutually exclusive populations? We need either a setting to add our readings with a timestamp, similar to foods, that then can be read as part of the diary; or integration with the most popular glucometer apps. This should be a basic feature, or at least Premium, for a so-called leading health app..Version: 18.10.5
Disliked UI immediatelyYears ago, I used this app to drop some pounds and really liked its features. I’m at a point where I need to reassess my diet and thought this would be a good option to return to, but the moment I opened the app after re-downloading, I just felt like it wasn’t for me. Calorie counting apps are a dime a dozen now, and a lot of them have worked hard on providing an interface that’s both efficient (because who wants to work around a clunky app when it already takes lots of time out of your busy day to record meals?) and visually pleasing (weight and dieting can be an unpleasant subject, right?). MyFitnessPal was clunky from the moment it requested my vitals (difficult to scroll and go to the next input field), to the tutorial, to the constant pop ups demanding I consider upgrading to premium. I’ve barely used the app yet, why not leave me alone and try again when I’ve actually had time to experience it? There is no focus on calorie information on the home page, instead dedicating screen space to blog posts etc. that I don’t have the time or desire to read anyway. It’s difficult to find the wearable device/app integration options. The camera scanner is much slower than other apps I’ve used with the same technology. Overall there is no sleek design or cute graphics that would make the this app unique or pleasant to use regularly. I was just disappointed in how far this app has fallen behind, and you probably will feel the same..Version: 20.24.7
Easy to use and lose!The only way I lose weight is when I’m counting all my calories. With this app on my phone, I can always do that. I set my goal of 2 lbs loss per week, and I love the graph that displays showing my progress each time I enter a new weight. The only thing I would ask the developer to improve is the recipe section, where you can add some recipe you eat all the time, such as a salad with 5 or 6 ingredients. This makes it much easier to add that same recipe to your food intake another time. But today I tried to enter my breakfast and it kept trying to leave the recipe page as I entered ingredients - Kodiak Buttermilk Cakes, skim milk, 1 egg. When I finally finished it, it had the correct calorie count, but it said I ate 14 g of protein, and that’s just for the Kodiak mix. The total protein should have been 21 g. But overall this app seems to enter accurate info (outside of the recipe function), and I find it extremely useful for calorie counting, weight loss, and keeping track of protein intake when I’m working out..Version: 7.29.1
Not a fan of the auto-adjustingI diligently track my macros everyday (which is why I have subscribed to the premium version of this app), and I’ve recently decided (with the guidance of my nutritionist) to change the amount of protein, carbs, and fat I have. When I make these changes, the app auto-adjusts the total of amount of calories that I “should” have daily. But listen here - no one asked for this! I certainly didn’t!!! I should be able to say how many calories, and how many grams of protein/fat/carbs I want without the app stopping me from doing both. As it stands now, I can only do one or the other, which makes no sense. I get that MFP most likely has medical professionals on their team helping to create the suggested macro/calorie breakdowns; but again - I’m not looking for this one-size-fits-all mess. I’m on a serious weight loss journey (down 138lbs, with 60lbs+ left to drop), and I’ve got goals to meet. Please consider disabling this unnecessary function. If I’m paying $50 a year, this entire setup should be customizable. I’d rather not use a different app, because y’all have the best bank of foods to log for tracking, but I’m not planning to continue paying for something that doesn’t meet my needs..Version: 19.3.6
It’s my homeThis app has saved me in life- It’s always there for me- I might stop for awhile- but when I’m ready to jump on the horse of conscious eating again- it’s there for me- and it remembers me and where I’ve been. I’ve been using it on and off again since 2012- and it shows all my progress. It has every food item you can imagine/ and if not a close counterpart - the barcode option is amazing- you can count your workouts and water easily- when I tried keto- I could easily check how many carbs I was ingesting-and could balance out the percentages with what I ate next- You can create a meal you eat normally and save it as a meal to easily add to your diary a different day-or a button to just add your breakfast from Yesterday - if your always eat the same most days- there is some social options as well- if you have friends using the app- you can see each others progress- I can’t say enough good things- I’ve tried other apps - and I’ve done weight watchers-but I always come back to this app. It’s my comfort and home. It keeps me aware- it keeps me focused and motivated..Version: 18.7.0
Security RiskThis app is ok except that it keeps triggering my antivirus software. This is disappointing because I’ve been using it for over a year and like the added ability to scan the upc to track my calories. I am going to have to look for a different app. This is what the security pop-up warning says is the problem with this app: Malicious Sources/Malnets Sites that host or distribute malware or whose purpose for existence is as part of a malicious network (malnet) or the malware ecosystem. Malware is defined as software that takes control of a computer, modifies computer settings, or collects or reports personal information without the permission of the end user. It also includes software that misrepresents itself by tricking users to download or install it or to enter personal information. This includes sites or software that perform drive-by downloads; browser hijackers; dialers; any program that modifies your browser homepage, bookmarks, or security settings; and keyloggers. It also includes any software that bundles malware (as defined above) as part of its offering. Information collected or reported is "personal" if it contains uniquely identifying data, such as email addresses, name, social security number, IP address, etc. A site is not classified as malware if the user is reasonably notified that the software will perform these actions (e.g., it alerts that it will send personal information, be installed, or that it will log keystrokes)..Version: 20.10.1
Accountability, motivation, and resultsI started using MFP, about a month ago. I had been slowly gaining weight for about a year and my available wardrobe was shrinking. I knew I had to make a change ,so I looked at a couple of calorie tracking apps and decided to go with MFP, because of the ease of entering foods and the community. I synced my FitBit with MFP and noticed that I could get extra calories if I walked and met my step goal for the day. This of course provided extra motivation to get outside and walk when I really didn’t have the desire. My weight loss goal was one pound a week. When I ended the day with several hundred calories left for a couple days in a row MFP let me know that I was being unhealthy and that they would not encourage the behavior. I was really impressed with that accountability as I do struggle with sometimes going to extremes with weight loss. Ultimately, by using MFP I have become more aware of what I’m putting in my mouth and how it makes me feel. I can also already wear more of my clothing!.Version: 7.30.1
Best calorie tracker that's freeI have tried a few of the free apps, and this one has a nice user interface that is easy to use. The graphs are nice, I have not felt the need for the pay version (free works fine for me). I use it for food logging and send all the data to my Fitbit for the best of both worlds. Few things that I think are missing from this app (and others). 1) It would be nice to track other body measurements like bust, legs, arm etc. Also, it would be nice if you could actually 'track your fitness' and measure goals for that. It is called 'myfitnesspal' after all! 2) It would be nice if you could measure as you increased weight or reps for strength training And see this reported so that you could visualize the accomplishment. 3). I think this isn’t best food tracker out there, but what it’s missing is an ability to track how you ‘feel’. If you could add things like bloated, tired, gassy, headache, or other common terms you could see the impact that certain foods or lack of exercise had on you. And this could motivate you to creat new habits or stick to those your trying to incorporate into your routine..Version: 21.4.6
One Small Feature RequestI’ve tried experimenting with other apps that almost all have better UI, but always lack something big, like a smaller pool of food available in their database to scan barcodes for which I find to be the main reason I use this app. But one thing other apps tend to have that this one doesn’t would be for a recommended nutrition breakdown per meal, in addition to the already existing total goal for the day. This gives me an idea on how important each meal is and allows me to recognize what parts of the day I slack on my nutrition and push me to try and meet that goal. It sounds basic and obvious but having the numbers presented in front of me that I haven’t met my goal yet gives me the motivation to look around for more options to eat than I’d routinely do. It also gives me an idea of how close/far I am to reaching those goals throughout the day. Without this feature, I can slack on breakfast or lunch and end up thinking I got a somewhat good meal, I’ll just have to eat a little more on my next meal, then by the time I get about halfway through the day and see how many calories and other nutritional categories I still have to get, I think to myself there’s no way I can get that many in the next meal or two, and I end up settling well short of my goal..Version: 20.10.0
Great app for people serious about losing weightI started using this app seriously in mid-July. The database for foods is great and I up until recently just used the free version. During this time I lost 11 lbs. I set my profile to the lowest setting for activity and have my pedometer set to the app to add calories I get for walking. My goal is to just keep under the calories based on losing 1.5 LBS a week. My suggestion is record everything even if you go over (it will happen occasionally). But that’s ok because you can work harder the next day. I finally did buy the premium version mainly for the export feature. I am an analyst by trade so I like to put my results into graphs and do monitoring beyond the app’s capabilities. I will stress it is not needed to lose weight. If you don’t want to spend time looking at your different nutrients then I would not spend the money on it. If you do it could be worth it. I like how the app says you have a 67% chance of better success if you pay for the premium. They don’t tell you about the confounder. The reason that happens most likely is people who do buy the app in general are more serious about the long hall. This should not be viewed as a diet it needs to be viewed as a life change that you will do going forward. Once you reach your goal you then switch to maintenance so you keep your weight and don’t gain it back..Version: 20.17.1
Great App for someone with a disabilityI have Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, and I am a recent heart transplant patient. I lost about 30 pounds before my transplant because I knew it would be a hard transition and it is important to give yourself and those helping you the best edge you possibly can. It’s also important to really educate yourself on nutrition and your body, I studied nutrition on my own did all the exercises I could, learned my body type and how I metabolize food. I also consult with my doctors and get blood work done so I know how to best tweak my diet to maximize my diet and health. Get some it’s always wise to consult with your doctors and even get a basic basic metabolic panel done to check your blood work. I recently gained a few pounds back from being on high doses of prednisone and others that made me super hangry like that already food loving person I am. As knowledgeable I am about nutrition I’m not a machine and this app keeps me accountable and allows me to make the most of my health habits. The key is to have a healthy balance and not obsess over losing weight and constantly over analyzing everything. It also helps me remember to hydrate. Don’t go crazy extreme, pace yourself and allow yourself to have many of the things you crave don’t over indulge make healthier versions of what you crave and eat smaller portions of the things you really want..Version: 7.36
Great app geared towards healthy dietingLess of a review and more of a feedback. First of all, I want to say I've been using this app on and off for about 7 years now. When I first started using it, the app projected weight loss no matter the calories. At the time I liked this, but looking back I realize how bad that can be and how it could cultivate eating disorders. It makes me unbelievably happy that they have changed it to not publishing food diaries, not posting it on feeds, and giving you a warning that you're not eating enough calories to sustain your body, and that it won't project weight loss for under the necessary calories needed for functioning. The first time I got that message I was discouraged, not because I wanted to see what I'd lose, but because I realized I needed to eat a lot more in any given day. Nowadays I get that message and I'm encouraged to use the app more to make sure I'm actually eating enough to live healthy. So, huge props to the developers and team for making sure people are staying healthy, and cultivating good eating habits..Version: 20.19.1
Dietary Restriction Alerts & Polar CompatibilityIn my own, personal opinion, the features that would earn fifth star would be to expand compatibility toward Polar brand products and applications, and to allow users to enter in specific ingredient, calorie, macro/micronutrient restrictions to be alerted to in meals & recipes. It would be great to know if something I ate (or am logging because I'm about to eat) will conflict with a low FODMAP diet, or has more of a specific nutrient than I want at the time. I recall a previous version that would offer food tips ("this food is high in sodium", "this food is a great source of vitamin c", etc.) I haven't yet tried the paid version, and these could be included there, but I felt it worth mentioning. Overall, the app comes packed with so many intuitive, convenient features, I have succeeded in making journaling with it part of my daily dietary considerations. The terms and conditions of the challenges offered are abjectly terrifying, though, and ought to be more prominently featured before agreeing to them. Currently, the language you provide allows sponsoring companies the freedom to scour my phone for any notes I've taken to work on business projects of my own during my participation, and hamstrings me to do anything to defend my own privacy and trade secrets afterward if they take any action on them. Not cool..Version: 7.26
Bugs seem to be getting worse rather than betterI’ve used this app on and off for over 4 years, including paying for the premium features for a couple years now too. I’m constantly put off by the frequent crashes and glitches requiring me to repeatedly close and restart the app just to log food. Creating a recipe, which should be a basic feature, is near impossible thanks to awful interface problems. For example, when you try to scan a food to add it as an ingredient in a recipe, if the barcode isn’t recognized, it acts as though you had closed out of the recipe creating process entirely and everything you had added to that point is lost. And even when you manage to get the entire recipe added, it seems like a coin flip as to whether it will actually let you save and log it rather than erase everything and make you start over again. I have been patient with this app (clearly, to be paying for it still after years of this stuff!) but not only have these bugs not improved in the time I’ve been using it, they seem to have gotten worse. After just sitting here and spending 20 minutes trying to add a simple recipe with nothing to show for it, I am finally done with this app, just canceled my subscription and I’m going to see what else is out there..Version: 19.11.0
CALORIE COUNTING IS UNHEALTHY!Calorie counting can damage how you see food and can lead to an eating disorder! i used to use this app all the time, and i can assure everyone reading this that it doesn’t matter if you’re eating “too much” - it matters WHAT you’re eating. 1000 calories worth of healthy food is NOT the same as 1000 calories as junk food but you would never know that using this app. You could be eating 1000 calories of junk food and still feel like you’re eating right because you’re eating the calories “you’re allowed to eat” This app makes you feel guilty for eating even if you’re eating healthy. there’s no reason you should be hungry and have to check your phone to see if you’re allowed to eat. There’s no reason you should go to bed hungry because this app tells you to. Do not download this app - you should not be obsessed with everything revolving around food and weight. it can lead to so many problems especially if you’re insecure or just more prone to it. i’ve been obsessed with how i eat because of how much i used to revolve my life around this app and sometimes i still catch myself counting calories! if you really want to lose weight, stay active and eat healthy(but it is also always okay to indulge in yourself sometimes).Version: 19.4.5
The UX is awfulAdding meals is such a mystery, you can tell that they try to reuse screens as much as possible, making the performance of adding a meal and adding a food confusing because they look exactly the same. But that’s not the worst part - the part that made me stop what I was doing to come directly to the App Store and leave a pissy review. The fact that I have to manually save my progress when creating a meal, like its 1995, is so stupid and counter intuitive to modern apps that it must have been a conscious decision. How ludicrous! I have lost 10 minutes of work logging meals 3 times since purchasing my membership two days ago. The identical screens make it so easy to push the back button one too many times and complete lose all of the foods I’ve logged in a meal. It doesn’t try to prevent you from doing it either - so bad! Here’s what should happen, every change I make should automatically be saved. If I want to change something later I can do so easily. I can’t, however, recall 10 minutes worth of food logging with the same amount of ease. Seriously, I regret buying my membership simply because of how this app functions when it comes to logging food. The database is pointless if I can so easily delete work by mistake, with no way of recovery..Version: 19.1.0
App ReviewA great service providing a platform for success on a human health quest. The My Fitness Pal application allows anyone to compile a detailed log of nutritional and fitness info into an easy to use, easy to interpret, easy to afford (free), and simple to navigate system.

Nearly anyone can master this application within a reasonable timeframe of consistent effort and in turn become the master of their fitness/health destiny. My Fitness Pal has provided a great service and allowed for anyone with the desire to do so to achieve the best version of themselves possible.

This application has earned a large following of motivated individuals for these reasons and stood the test of time. Go forth and conquer your goals with profound efficiency. -Klahr.Version: 19.7.1
Almost perfect! Great app!I love this app and would give it a perfect score if I could get Premium membership with PayPal so my bank information is protected. You can use ApplePay but I don’t use that for all purchases. Also it is nearly impossible to locate how and to actually speak with a human on this app. For free users this isn’t a concern but for those looking to pay a membership it is something to consider. The creators of this app are genius! There are so many practical tools to track your progress and it interfaces/syncs with multiple different tracking devices. I have a FB Versa 3 and it does well with that. The only other thing I would caution users about that are considering Premium is to join via the website not the app. The in app Premium membership is substantially higher. If you plan to use ApplePay remember that before you click on the in-app upgrade. It’s like a $30 difference for the annual upgrade for Premium. Other than that, give it a try. The team that created this app seems to have thought of most everything. Highly recommend it!.Version: 20.24.0
Technically a horrible appOn principal, this app is great. The method of calorie counting is the only way I know how to lose weight and maintain it. My fitness pal makes that possible. But from a technical standpoint, it’s awful. It’s basic stuff. It freezes up all the time, or it’s slow at the very least. It’s search is kinda bad. When I search recent foods, it doesn’t seem to always remember them or it’s as if I have to type it in verbatim, all words and the brand in order. At the very least it should remember something I ate a few weeks ago. Seems like it doesn’t. There’s a lot of clutter in the database. For example I can do without other people’s recipes that say “1 serving,” How do I know how big a serving is? It’s interface is weird and pretty much outdated, it’s hard to find features. And yes, to be fair this is an app that I’m using every time I eat, so I’m holding it to high standards. But this is why it should be better. Counting calories is annoying, stupid, and it takes too long. I need something sooooo streamlined. I’ve been using it for years and I’m so tired of it. Seriously, exhausted. It’s known to be the most popular app for its purpose, so that’s why I use it. I’m doing research for a new one. We’ll see what I find. I might not beat it, I don’t know..Version: 19.12.6
Not supportive for someone trying to gain weightI’m using the app to try to gain weight after several months of losing weight due to body shaming. This app helps me make sure I am getting enough calories, but its layout is not helpful for me to mentally deal with hitting my calorie goal: when I reach or exceed my goal, rather than telling me I did something that is making me healthy, the app turns the number of calories “remaining” from green to red, and the calorie bar graph also turns red—this enforces in my mind the idea that eating less is better, while eating enough is bad, and so encourages me to slip back towards anorexia, and I have to work really hard to mentally fight against those thoughts. Furthermore, nearly all the posts in the feed are about losing weight and eating less, which is not helpful because I need to do the exact opposite in order to become healthier. Seeing those posts make me feel pressure to lose weight, which is not a good thing for me to be feeling. I’m glad this app has an option to make gaining weight as your goal, but I really wish the layout of the app would support that goal..Version: 19.10.1
Such a helpful app!!I've been using MyFitnessPal since February at the recommendation of my trainer. I am 45 and have never really had to worry about my weigh or diet until recently. I had put on 10 pounds and was shocked to discover it wasn't easy to loose (it had always been easy before). With this app, it shows you it's all about math :-). I've lost almost all the weight I want to loose, and the reason I haven't lost it all is because I eat too much lots of days (or I should say, I eat too many high cal junk foods instead of protein and veggies that will fill me up without all the calories). I am eating much healthier though and have learned to fill up on the healthy lower calorie foods most of the time. I feel great!! I'm 5'6' and 125 pounds at the moment. Still a work in progress, but I love this app and am so glad my trainer turned me on to it! I also recommended this app to my brother, and he has been much more conscientious with his food intake. He has completely turned his health around and lost 30 pounds! Thirty pounds in five months! He is 5'10' and now weighs 145 pounds. He looks great and is eating so healthy!.Version: 7.23
Life changingI first started using this app when I began bodybuilding. I would have never gained over 15 pounds in muscle and completely changed my body if it wasn’t for myfitnesspal. A few years later, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I had to alter my diet entirely. I had no energy to even work out for 3 months while I waited for my body to respond to the changes I made so I stopped using the app, as I only associated it with tracking my macros for bodybuilding. I also had no knowledge of how little calories the majority of my extremely clean diet consisted of, and because of that, I ended up losing 16 pounds. All those years of consistent hard work, gone...just like that. After hearing this alarming number, I immediately started using myfitnesspal again to gain my weight back. I have not only gained the weight back, I have learned so much about the new foods I am eating. I am also happy to say my health is finally turning around and I am working out again!! While my doctor was the one who saved my life, I this think myfitnesspal had an incredibly strong positive impact as well. And for that, I thank you from the bottom of my heart..Version: 18.6.0
Easy to use, wish focus was on healthThis app is very easy to use to log the food you eat - what I mainly use it for, to stay balanced. It’s far more efficient than in 2010, when I first started using it. I spend maybe 5 minutes a day total logging my food intake. I like that it includes nutrition breakdowns so I can pinpoint when I’m lacking iron, or calcium, or etc in my overall diet. What I don’t like is that there is not much language change when you go from “loosing weight” or “gaining weight” settings to just maintain weight. Every day when I finish logging food and exercise, it says, “If every day were like today, you’d weight xxx pounds in 5 weeks!” I understand why this concept is useful in maintaining weight, but I suggest that it be done less often. Perhaps it could be a weekly recap, or a button you could push to check whether your habits will lead to incremental weight gain (much like you have to navigate to the nutrition breakdown when you want to see it). I know that on Easter Sunday, I ate richer foods and more of them than is healthy everyday; I don’t need that reminder just before bed. It steals some of my joy in the day and in the celebration I chose to indulge in that day. Maybe have something pop up that is encouraging every once and a while - like you hit your calcium goal this week! Or you logged exercise 5 days! Something that is focused on weekly, not daily, behavior. And something actually encouraging and NOT focused on weight!.Version: 19.4.2
Glitchy and non responsiveI am not usual one to write reviews however the issues I found with this app was beyond what one should expect and I have just downloaded and can’t use it. Therefore, I felt compelled to write in hopes that someone will read and fix these issues. As mentioned, I had just downloaded the app and wanting to check it out before paying for the premium service. First, it denied me signing up 3x before I was final accepted my information to open up the app. Then as I went to put in my exercise for the day it gave no options for cardio and strength based workouts ( ie: HIIT, interval, circuit etc) and when I clicked on the “routines” option it just keep spinning the load circle bringing nothing up. Adding single food items was fine but when input ingredients to “create a recipe” it gave me an error pop up and told me to retry. Meaning I would ya e to input all the Ingredients I had just done again. I did this 3x again to no avail. Then lastly it asked for me to verify my email account that was connect via an email sent. I had done so hours before but was asked to do it again. So I requested another verification be sent. Over an hour later still have not received the email. This app is extremely disappointing and there are many others out there and I have deleted this app and will find one that actually works..Version: 20.9.0
Perfect.I’ve always had issues with eating properly. Last year I’d always skip breakfast, eat a small side for school lunch, and eat a moderate dinner. (I guess it was due to my mental health but I never realized it until now😅) Anyways, I would repeat this unhealthy pattern and always wondered why I was so skinny. I felt so ugly every time I looked in the mirror, where I criticized and shamed my body until I ran out of insults. For months I tried everything to gain weight, from eating loads of junk food (thinking it would help me) to drinking just protein shakes as a meal. It was up until a few weeks ago when I finally realized I wasn’t consuming enough calories (alongside the fact that I wasn’t eating enough). Ever since I got this app (just about 4 weeks ago), I have been eating a healthy amount of food. I’ve gained weight in the places I’ve wanted to gain weight, and I haven’t felt this happy about my body in years. I’ve always had issues with committing to the daily 2,000 calorie diet, but this app has helped me eat the normal amount and I am so grateful🥺. It has also changed my eating habits—I used to eat junk food in unhealthy amounts but using this app has helped me stay away from fatty foods and has guided me towards eating not only healthier foods, but eating them in healthy amounts. Thanks to this app, my body finally looks like a normal person’s body. Thank you so much to the team that keeps this app running..Version: 20.15.1
Gross Pictures with Ads but extensive databaseI’ve been using this app for years. There are so many ads now which I understand. But some of them pop up on your feed right when you open the app and there are some really gross images. A lot of times I am eating when I enter my calories and the images for the weird ads are so gross it makes me stop eating and lose my appetite. There was one that came up for weeks that showed someone getting ear wax removed. Now I logged in and it shows a close up of someone removing some type of gross substance from the back of their throat. Why would you have these kinds of ads show up on the home page of a food log app? Also, if you sync with Fitbit it enters your workouts automatically but it also tracks your steps and gives you a calorie adjustment for that as well, which Is like double tracking. If you go for a run for example, it will sync the workout from fitbit and give you the calories for that, and then also add in your steps from the run and give you more calories which I don’t think is accurate. Other than that, no other food app compares as far as the extensive food database and the ease of being able to enter recipes, meals, etc. I also love the social functionality where friends can comment on your status. Of course they have to scroll through all the ads in the feed to find your updates, and overlook the gross images of earwax and other things..Version: 20.11.0
Could be a LOT betterI had this app for a long time, stopped using it for several years and came back to it and now you have to pay for a premium membership to use what was free before and it’s really glitchy! I thought somehow I was screwing up but I see now from other reviews that many others have my same issue. Foods in the diary keep randomly duplicating and sometimes adding to previous days’ diaries. I added in something for today’s morning and it added it to yesterday instead of today and another item was duplicated. The barcode scanner is very limited, doesn’t work on most nutritional items and for me the worst thing is that it doesn’t track nutrients except for like 4 basic ones. I’m much more interested in tracking nutrition than calories or exercise which I did manually for years easily in a notebook. When you go over 100g of vitamin C it lists it in red like you did something terribly wrong. It reprimands you if your goal weight is less than what they think you should be even though I was that weight for years, was perfectly healthy and my doctor never once said I was underweight. It reprimands you if you go under 1000 calories for the day which is ridiculous, how can you lose weight eating more than 1000 calories? I have the free trial of the premium now and already cancelled it to make sure I don’t forget (you still get the free month). The weight should be lost by then anyway..Version: 20.15.1
Very helpfulI recently started using MyFitnessPal and it is very helpful especially with tracking food and exercise. There are a couple of things that could be improved and those being on the home page I wished it showed all of your stats-calories eaten and remaining, carbs, fat, protein, sugar, fiber etc. I would also like to be able to set my calorie intake for the day and not have it adjust due to exercise. Maybe there is a way to do that and I just haven’t found it yet. Finally being able to enter the type of diet you eat would be great and then if you are low or high on calories, protein etc it would make suggestions on specific foods to eat to make up for any high or low. It does tell you if you have surpassed the “limit” but having suggestions would be amazing. I am also able to link it to my Garmin to record steps etc. One last thing I would like to see is an area to record vitamins/medications you are taking and figure those into the daily allowance and a place to record blood pressure, pulse, sleep patterns and other personal health info. Overall I am very pleased. It’s played a big part in losing my first 8 pounds!.Version: 19.9.10
It made me realizeMy New Years resolution was to get to a certain weight that would call for me to lose about 15 pounds. I already ate rather healthy during my meals, but I had a problem with snacking. I wasn’t at the point of sitting down and eating an entire family bag of chips in one setting. I would however eat a handful here and there, eat 4 Girl Scout cookies twice a day, and some of the candy my grandma loves to send me every and I mean every holiday. I couldn’t see how much that snacking affected me. My fitness pal has helped me keep track of my calories as I take them in and it has worked wonders! I have been successfully losing weight and it’s all because I can actually see a number to know how many calories I have left in my day when I go to grab the snack. Now don’t get me wrong I still snack some, but I’ll do one snack a day now or half of the amount of chips and half of the cookies instead of a large amount. Another thing that this app has helped me with is realizing how I feel after I eat. For example if I am not eating healthier foods I usually feel exhausted the next day. I didn’t realize it before but now that I have a food diary to look back on I can see what I ate compared to how I feel..Version: 7.33
Very convenient and effective!I started using this app as part of my lifestyle change to lose 100 lbs. I have used this in conjunction with other things such as my Garmin. It is very convenient to be able to sync this with my Garmin so I don’t have to add my activities or calories burned. I love that I’m able to scan the things I eat and easily add things that do not have a barcode to scan, a must for this single (and very busy) mom of 4! Being able to add my own meal recipes has been wonderful as well; recipes that’s have been passed down from family (Mexican dishes) which have always been hard to keep track of is no longer a problem. This app, I’m certain, has allowed me to enjoy the foods I want and be mindful of my consumptions and portion sizes. It really has helped put a perspective on my own habits and also had helped me identify how my body gains and looses weight, which I feel is different for everyone and is imperative when trying to lose weight. I lost 75 lbs just by adding this app and of coarse increasing my activity levels. A++ and a 5 star rating from me! Great job developers!.Version: 7.33
Life changing if taken seriouslyI started using this app right at the apex of my weight gain during college. I didn’t participate in high school athletics and had virtually zero knowledge of anything nutritionally beyond, “ There’s a place that shoots out 5 dollar burgers.”. I think it’s most important to look at the composition of macronutrients in a few days worth of your particular diet, not necessarily using this as a “calorie counter”. It’s very hard to ignore some of the numbers that will pop out at you if you are diligent and truthful with yourself. It helps to motivate you in a different direction. Even though everything has nutritional information labeled as a requirement, it’s easy ignore until you start to realize that if Item A has 32g of fat and %4000 percent of my daily sodium intake... and that’s my daily between breakfast and lunch... It could totally swing a large portion of my diet by just omitting that one item. In the past I’ve used this whenever I’ve switched large portions of my dietary ideology. Regardless of if you maintain 100% accuracy after month 3 or 4, I guarantee you will at the very least have a number of eye opening moments if you’ve never scrutinized the make up of your diet..Version: 19.6.0
Such a valuable app, and I mean even the free versionI love this app. It is a little tedious to have to track all my food, but it has been so worth it. The app is easy to use. Takes a minute to get to know how everything works and all the possibilities, but really quite simple to use. I have now used it for several years, on and off. This time around, I have found it makes me so much more conscious of the snacking I have been justifying. I now realize just how many extra calories those stupid little snacks, and the little bit of soda, or the mini-chocolates actually contribute to my daily intake. Way more calories than they are worth in nutrition. Accordingly, I have REDUCED my decadent indulgences, and am already losing weight! Those marketing masters, making mini-chocolates so you think, “It’s just little. It can be many calories!” The problem is those mini’s are just as addicting as the full-sized candy bars. So...I can’t just eat one. This app has put the truth in my face. It is now up to me to decide whether those indulgences are worth spending that many calories on. I am getting stronger and stronger! Thanks, Under Armour, for making such great apps for health..Version: 20.16.0
Why don’t any fitness apps have a “just had a baby” note?I used to love this app and many of its features but I find it lacking after having my baby. Not only does the weight gain from my pregnancy look negative on the chart (well duh I made a child), but there are many of the features that make it seem like I’m lazy or not putting in the effort to stay healthy. The calorie intake is much less than what I should be eating because I’m breastfeeding but it turns negative when I include the snacks because it goes over the calorie goal. Not to mention that exercise is limited postpartum. I’m not asking for my fitness pal to keep track of my breastfeeding or anything like that (there are many other apps for that) but it would be nice if there was a note you could add or status change that one could add that encourages mamas who are recovering from labor. Not put us down for not being able to keep up with our diets and exercise habits pre-child. A little encouragement, especially around the 5th and 6th week postpartum would be beneficial since that is around the time when most moms can actually begin to work out and do light exercises. This app is really helpful because it helps me make sure I’m eating enough, especially since it’s hard to stay sane with a newborn and lack of sleep. I just wish it was more mama friendly because many fitness apps seem to completely forget that labor and recovery ain’t easy. 😥.Version: 18.7.0
Lost 47 pounds already this yearFitness pal works so well for me. It doesn't judge. It just records facts. I committed to telling it everything except the occasional milk in coffee. I am creating new habits and I didn't quit the first time I was at an unexpected party and went over by 1700 calories that day. I acknowledged that this was the first exception to my new habits and not my habit. I still lost weight that week. Yes, the two pound loss for had targeted. This week was the first week I maintained my weight since April. Every other week has been a loss. I'm totally okay with that. I still log everything. I exercise six days a week. Swim or bike or walk. I counted my 4 hours of volunteer bar tending yesterday as a two hour leisurely walk. It's all good. MyFitnessPal is my pal in this endeavor and I give it the highest rating because it is always there, consistent, and ready to record my steps along the way, be they baby steps or giant leaps of progress. My blood pressure mess are down, I'm no longer prediabetic and my liver enzymes are way down. My fatty liver is also losing weight. If you work it, it will be work for you. 😍.Version: 7.24
My Constant CompanionOverall this is a great app. I use it very frequently and I maintain a premium subscription. It carried me through a weight loss journey and through a transformative year in which I became a long distance runner. As a runner, I really enjoy being able to track and alter my macros (and correlate to results). I really love how it adjusts my total calories based on daily exercise. This app has an expansive food database plus an ability to create custom foods and recipes, which I use extensively. It does have it quirks. I do not like how it often insists on opening to the Home page of blog entries. It should open directly to either (1) the diary or (2) a dashboard summary of nutrition (calories to go, macros, etc). Otherwise it is just slowing me down. I use this app in all its forms, phone, iPad and web browser, m and I occasionally experience sync issues with food items. The fix is to go into the problem items and tweak them to force a write. Overall, highly recommended. Like exercise, it is no panacea and one gets back only what one puts into it..Version: 7.36
Not User FriendlyI want to use this app because I can link it with the Walgreens app and get bonus rewards for my healthy activity. The problem is that I don’t like it very much because it’s not user friendly. I don’t like having to add each exercise I do along with the number of sets and reps and approximate number of calories burned (which I don’t even know and would have to look up). Also, adding recipes is a lot of extra work too because you have to add each ingredient and then match it up. I would like to have access to an extensive library of different kinds of exercises (calisthenics, yoga, dancing, etc) with the approximate number of calories burned for the amount of time I do them. Similarly, I would like to be able to look up and ingredient for a recipe select the amount used and then have the amount of calories for the ingredient factored in to my recipe and the amount per serving. I also don’t like the list look of the app; it’s not very interesting. I would like to have buttons for each meal, for adding exercises, weight, and water consumption. For now, I’m going to go back to using My Plate by Live Strong; I can’t add recipes but it’s easier and more interesting to use..Version: 18.8.0

Great free app and resource - quite buggy (at times)MyFitnessPal is a great free food tracking app and a great food database (avoiding manual input). Only downside is that it’s quite buggy at times. Feature request: it’s annoying that I can’t add food to a meal and have my search results come from any meal history (and not just the meal I’m in). For example if I eat bacon and eggs for dinner and I try to add bacon to meal 3, my search won’t show the bacon that I eat every weekend as part of meal 1. It’s super annoying that my meals and choices are inconsistent..Version: 7.28
So helpfulThis app is teaching me so much more about food and i’m really beginning to understand what im putting into my body. I started to use this app to support my partner to lose weight, but even i am learning too. And what i learn, i can share with him to help educate his experience, but also further understand his experience as he embarks in this same learning experience. I struggled to use the app at first, but i think that was more to do with my fear and overwhelm of grasping all of the nitty gritty about my food intake. With some steady confidence I have no idea what i wasn’t understanding! This app is so user friendly, great for beginners and pros alike. Im so glad there is something like this out there for people who are really trying to make a change for the healthier.Version: 7.29.1
Good app but could use a few improvementsI’ve been using the premium version for a while now, and I think overall the app is very convenient and quick. I especially enjoy the extensive food database, since I rarely need to add my own nutritional info for food. I would however like to suggest a few improvements: - currently you can add directions to meals but not recipes... which doesn’t make a lot of sense imo (unless I’m missing something here) - for the dashboard, it would be good to have a few more display options, such as to not show calories or to show % remaining of nutrients - I wish net carbs was a thing, since it is easy to over consume fibre when on a calorie deficit, and end up having less calories from carbs and then getting less energy for workouts/day to day activities. It’s also easier to plan macros based on net carbs imo. This will probably never be read but whatever lol.Version: 20.3.0
Good app / awful supportAlways when there an issue with the app they take awhile to fix and even to acknowledge it. Since they are selling a service (premium features) on this app, they should at least provide some support. A company responding on twitter asking to reach them by email(and then you need to wait for days) is not the best service you could expect. Hopefully some day they will care for the customers and delivery a good customer service..Version: 20.12.0
Great app - Definitely get this one!!!I’ve used MyFitnessPal on and off for several years, both the free and premium version. The only features I used from premium was the “time stamp” and “no ads”. I’ve reverted back to the free version, because it has everything I need. The barcode scanner is great, and if the product isn’t there - you can add it. (Please include everything on the nutritional panel, guys) One thing that would help is if people would check their spelling when adding products to the lists, as these become available to us all and can make searching difficult. Absolutely love the recipe and meal features. You can add a favourite family recipe - and it will calculate how many calories per serving. I recommend keeping it to weight/per gram, so you can weigh your portion and get the true caloric value. In hindsight, it seems that the best way to get results it is to track your planned food BEFORE you eat. There are some sneaky calories out there! I’ve recommended the app to several people, I like the diary sharing option (with password) which can help with accountability and partnering on your health journey. It can be used in conjunction with many fitness trackers and exercise apps. All in all, it’s definitely a worthwhile app to use - both free and premium versions. Give it a go, you won’t regret it..Version: 19.2.0
Love it! but here’s an idea...I absolutely love MFP. I use it every day in my journey in the gym, it’s so handy and easy to use; I love to see exactly how much protein, carbs, fats etc is going into my body But I would love a feature where we can change it to a checklist if you will. I (along with lots of people) pre plan our days. Now if there was an option to “make checklist” where all the food we’ve put in get’s a little circle next to it; and we can “check it off” when we eat it; that would be awesome!! Obviously not demanding it; just a thought :-).Version: 20.12.0
Subscription still restricts proper accessThis app is ok but needs work. I bought premium subscription hoping I’d have more control but I could only turn needs feed off but the app still starts up in the home screen and not last open page (diary entry). It forces you to use the blog / news feed even if you only want to use the diary. It’s a shame really, paid subscription isn’t cheap and last thing we want is delay in entering food items when we have our hands full. The dates can get confusing as you must constantly remind yourself or try remember it's in USA format. My settings are all metric and Australia time but looks like date format is not changing for Australia..Version: 7.25
Good and badThis app is THE app to get if interested in tracking calories. However it falls in having a far too expensive premium membership system, for me and I assume most people who use this app the articles on the main page are pointless. It also suffers from crash issue and I often open the app to find it in “offline mode” despite having home wifi and data both available. It is a good app overall with a solid system for entering food data and a relatively large data base in comparison to other apps I have used. However the fact that you have to pay way to much for premium in order to simply see the macros of the food you enter kills the app for me and because of that I cannot recommend it..Version: 7.29.1
Everything I need for health & fitnessI love this app! I can do everything from just one application - track food, see exercise results, track my progress, and sync my fitness tracker. I’m also getting real value out of the blog: I’ve gotten some great fitness tips, ideas for new exercises, and some new meal plans that are working well. I started using the app just to track food, and it made a big difference to see where my daily calories were actually coming from. I made some simple adjustments to what I was eating and had instant results. I’ve slacked off from my routine a few times, and this app always helps me get back on track. Now I use it for everything :).Version: 7.29.1
On track thanks to this appInstead of thinking about food, what I can and can’t eat, I complete my daily info. All the information one can access is amazing. It is easy to navigate and it is fun exploring what it has to offer. Once I did my first week weigh in, I went straight to this to record my loss. Love it And my friend and I encourage each other through the link. I can see what she has been eating ha ha and just how active she has been. Sadly she has the same access to my data 🤪🤪.Version: 19.12.6
Used to be the best now pathetic!This app used to be literally the best on the market - it was all I ever used and loved it!!! Since the last update, this app well and truly is a pain in the proverbial backside! Every single time I go to the app it asks me to consent to some stupid data collection policy - like every time I log a meal or a glass of water - yesterday I think I consented at least 20 times. I don’t know what you’ve done My Fitness Pal but you need to fix this stuff up and FAST because it’s becoming very annoying and time consuming and after almost 5 years using this app I’m ready to delete it and say goodbye! To all those looking to start using this app - don’t bother until it’s fixed because it will drive you crazy with the constant requests for data sharing every time you click on the app!.Version: 19.8.0
Glitching and getting kicked outI absolutely love this app, I have the free version and I love it. I love how accurate it is and how it allows you to track everything. Although I’ve had this app for a few weeks now and recently for the past few days whenever I try to log my workout routines, I get kicked out of the entire app. I’ve tried everything but it just won’t let me log anything, it’s really frustrating because I don’t want to delete the app, as I have over a months worth of information logged on it and I like the app itself. But I feel like it’s useless to have the app if I can’t even access it 🙄.Version: 20.5.0
Love this app!I've been using this app for 18 months in conjunction with my Fitbit exercise tracker. The apps sync with each other so that I'm encouraged to exercise I order to increase the number of kilojoules I can eat. Fitness pal is very easy to use. You can scan barcodes, add your own recipes or meals, or just look up by name from the massive database. I find losing weight with this app relatively easy as long as you enter all your food BEFORE you put it in your mouth! I have several friends who now use this app and love it as much as I do!.Version: 7.23
Brilliant - and amazing for freeI tried this app a few years ago but couldn’t get into it so I went back to weight watchers which I combined with Paleo for good results. I recently tried this app again and learnt to set my metrics so that the % of fat, carbs and protein suited my chosen diet. Such a great app. I’ve chosen to do the 1 month free premium trail and, after just 3 days, I’m likely to pay the $79 for the year of premium, it’s that good. I can plan all my meals and tweak them to suit my goals, record my weight and take pictures to log my progress along with my body measurements. I could go on, but safe to say, I’m a big fan. Try the free app and consider the month free trial of premium..Version: 7.32
Small description on meal choiceUsually when picking from a list of food, there are over 10 and you have to pick the one best suited to you. I love this app but I honk it could be that little bit better if there were small descriptions saying what the food was. For e.g: this morning I was listing the eggs Benedict that I had. There are many different options but I wasn’t sure if the one I picked included 1 or 2 eggs, bacon or ham, 1 or 2 pieces of bread nor if it came with hollandaise sauce :) I think this would be a huge improvement Thankyou.Version: 7.37
Love itIt's a great app and easy to use. Love the barcode scanning option, how it remembers your foods and how you can set recipes and meals. A few improvements: it'd be great to be able to write what the food was when entering calories using the quick entry option; also, it'd be good to be able to enter gram quantities rather than having to set quantity to 1 g then have 50 servings of it! I like to enter my meals ahead of time so I know I will have a balanced day within my calore count. It’d be good to be able to tick foods off as I eat them. Lastly, I am currently doing the Michael Mosely fast 800 diet. An intermittent fasting setting would be good as at the moment the app tells me off every night for not eating enough :(.Version: 19.12.6
Excellent free appI really love this free app as it syncs to my Fitbit to keep track of steps for exercise and calories burnt. The scanner is a great way to quickly scan foods for a food diary. Can be time consuming to add foods made from scratch at home or specific exercises at the gym, but makes you more accountable and aware of l everything you do. The free part gives me everything I've needed. Have used this app for a few years and still has recipes and weight history stored. Totally worth giving it a go..Version: 7.29.1
GLITCHESI love this app, however it always kicks me out and glitches and doesn’t let me in before the app shuts down and boots me out!!! i’m getting extremely frustrated as i can’t log my food entries for the day... this has been happening for days on end... i’ve tried re downloading it and re starting my phone but nothing changes. The app has great features and really works well for me, but with the horrible glitches and not letting me in the app for more then 2 seconds before kicking me out... i can’t even give this app more then a 1 star. i’ve been using this for two weeks and it makes me quite mad as all my progress is on there and now i can’t access it. 😡😡😡😡😡😡.Version: 20.5.0
Fantastic app- though i would love one extra!I’ve used this app (the free version) for years now to track macros. It’s been a fantastic tool, has a huge variety of foods in its data base. Is easy to scan and add foods and supplements and I love you can see into your friends food diaries for inspiration meals, ideas and motivation. My only wish is that it would have the option to add or track NET CARBS along with total carbs. I know that this would help a much broader variety of healthy lifestyles who focus on net carbs in there diet. I for one am looking at changing my nutrition to focus on net carbs and unfortunately I think I will be forced to look for another app. Please consider including this in your next update!! MFP is really my preferred go to for tracking and if this was available I would more than likely go premium as it does everything else I want!.Version: 18.9.1
Changes for the better?This app seems to have changed a lot since I last used in 2015 and not sure for the better. The addition of premium services is ok but seems to constantly push this upgrade option. It’s early days but the interface seems more complex than I last remember it, perhaps the additional of more and more information just creates noise with little value. Anyway let’s see how it goes for tracking calories, which it did a great job of in 2015. Hopefully all the new dials and switches makes it better but still a good and simple user experience.Version: 7.35
Great app with one fatal flaw.This is a great app, the developers have put a lot of thought into how it functions. It cleverly calculates your daily calorie intake along with exercise management to reach a goal. The fatal flaw with this app is that you can’t specify custom serving sizes like many other apps of this type. The developers have suggested a clunky work around to the problem, but isn’t efficient. I would probably pay the subscription fee to use this app if allowed me to specify the weight of my food. Especially because there are other great partner apps associated with this one. Such a shame..Version: 7.29.1
Pay premium yet get nothingDon’t download this app if you’re upgrading to premium. You will end up paying for a monthly subscription that you can’t even access! I’m so sick of paying monthly premium subscription payments and yet my actual app asks me to upgrade and I don’t get the premium features! I have in the past tried contacting their help desk and had to follow up three times before I got a response. Yet again it’s asking me to upgrade when my subscription already shows I’ve paid! That’s unacceptable. I’ve used this app for years but I’m so sick and tired of having this issue. I’m now refusing to use it. Why should I make others rich for a product they don’t even give what we are paying for..Version: 18.9.1
Awesome training and weight loss partnerIt wasn’t the only tool, but without the help, the planning and resources available in this fantastic app, I’d still be a fatty!!! I’ve lost 65 kilograms, that’s 150 pounds or almost 11 stone! Huge in any language. I know about weight loss, all this trying for all this time, it’d be impossible not to pick up a little knowledge, but my number one must /have/do tip is get a plan and focus on the metrics,(measurements). My Fitness Pal gives me that and more. Get it, pay the money and get the full version and then get its companion, Map My Walk, you will see results. My Fitness Pal is everything an app should be! Rob.Version: 20.10.0
Great appMy FitnessPal has been amazing. I have been wanting to change my lifestyle for a while but it can be hard with a busy life. By entering my daily diet into the app I have learnt what to change. It has taught me sometimes even a salad can be too many calories if too many ingredients are used. I didn’t realise the sugar content can be high in a lot of foods that I thought were ‘healthy’. I love that the app tracks my steps every day too. I have lost 4kgs in a month and hope to lose more in the near future but I am also able to use the app to maintain my current weight..Version: 19.4.5
Great, but keeps pushing me to premiumGreat app that tracks food intake, exercise, weight and other basic metrics. It is simple and intuitive to use, although a picture of the food would help determine which is the closest match. It has millions (literally) of food items, but it means your chicken salad will have 20 variations. Which one is closest to YOUR chicken salad? Other than that, and the constant drive to upgrade me to premium and the expected yet annoying adds, it’s very much a handy tool to help you with your goals..Version: 20.20.0
Very poor valueOn a whim I upgraded to premium, primarily because the base app nags you continuously to upgrade. By paying $80AUD I assumed that the user experience would be significantly improved, this is a lot of money for an app. Instead I was severely disappointed with the “features” you get from premium. The most frustrating part is the poor quality database of food items. Even basic common items aren’t available or don’t have logical portion sizes set up. Fat secret’s database is much more logical and complete. I am sorry to have wasted my money, and I’m disappointed that I could not get a refund when I realised what little I got for my money. My advice is to just use the free app or better still use the fatsecret calorie counter..Version: 7.28
NopeLeaving my old review down the bottom, as I’m sure it’s still a valid point. But my new problem is with the cost of a premium subscription, 80$ per year, you must have a massive crack problem to expect people to pay that... surely you would help a lot more people with a lower price and also get a lot more subscribers. 80$Yearly is a joke I'm so sick of searching through 20 of the same thing looking for what is right. The foods that people input should be checked before it is turns up on everyone's list. Some of the calories are so far wrong it's pathetic... I have been using other calorie apps to double check the information on MFP. I don't care if I have to pay for it, if I find a better app, I won't be bothering with this anymore..Version: 7.27
Was great now it crashes/freezes all the time!I’ve been using this app for quite a while and it was great in the beginning. Would have rated 5/5. It has an extensive database of food and the barcode scanner is great. In the beginning it was very user friendly. However, now I can’t event enter a meal or scroll down the page without the app freezing or crashing all together. Flipping back through the days of the week causes the app to have a fit, it’s slow and it’s clunky. The freezing and number of crashes has frustrated me so much that I’ve started looking for another app to track my food and exercise. It’s been like this for months and I’m a bit fed up..Version: 18.6.0
Effective tool for weight loss/healthier eatingTracking keeps me honest and accountable. Gives me the leverage to walk away from unhelpful food and to make better choices. Quick entry and copy n paste features make tracking easy. At the end of each day, MFP predicts what my weight might be if every day is like today’s. That’s been a powerful motivator for me. Nutritional breakdowns of food are great for telling me what nutrients I need to eat more or less of. All helps my body feel satisfied. Also links with my exercise app, so exercise downloads automatically to MFP, and I can see the impact of that walk/run. MFP has been a lifeline to me - given me power and control over my food that I’ve been lacking for a long time. No longer feel powerless and defeated. I’m getting brilliant results!.Version: 19.6.5
Premium rip offWas a great app- still is to some extent and I’ve been using it for over 7 years but the cost of the premium upgrade for what’s offered is actually laughable, there are plenty of other food tracking apps that offer the ability to more closely track your macros without paying $15 a month... I’m thinking it’s time I actually start seriously looking at what the others have to offer- and no I have no interest in paying $80 upfront every year either, as a one off I would have considered it or if there was considerably more content offered maybe but $80 a year or $15 a month is beyond greedy- will stop recommending this as a good tracking app.Version: 7.29.1
Very UnhappyFor over a week now I have been logged out of this app. In June I paid for a premium subscription and last week was unable to access my account. I contacted Support only to receive a bulk email which did not address my issue. I have sent over 5 emails to Support detailing my issue. As a result I received one email back which was the same bulk email I originally received. I have had to start a new account, pay for a premium subscription again and as a result I have lost over two years of data from my old account. Emails to Support to merge my new and old account so I can access my data has fallen on deaf ears and I have had zero support. When you pay almost $140 in two subscriptions one would expect some decent support. In my case, there has been Zero support. Very unhappy and I would no longer recommend this app. My mistake for starting a new account..Version: 18.9.1
What have you done to your app?I’ve used the free version of this app for about 7 years and it has always been helpful, but this latest update is terrible. It is slow, my diary entries have gone missing, and you can’t log glasses of water correctly. Plus, all the premium subscription pop-ups are annoying! I get it, you want people to pay... payment for premium services are great, and I have considered it numerous times, but the free version does everything I need and I’ve always been a huge advocate of MyFitnessPal. Please don’t make the current features useless with annoying pop-ups. With all the competition available today, I won’t need to remain a loyal user of yours. Your Product Owners really need to get back to customer-centred design instead of whatever sales strategy focus they’ve currently got going on..Version: 18.10.5
Crashes frequentlyI used to love this app but it now frequently crashes. So frustrating. I cook from scratch a lot so adding my recipes is really laborious (the feature to add a URL and it should automatically load the recipe NEVER works for me) and I just can’t cope when it crashes half way through. It might be good for people who eat a lot of food from packets as you can scan barcodes to get the calories added. But I’m looking for a new calorie tracker... Ps Followed instructions to sync then uninstall and reinstall app. The recipe function still doesn’t work. I tried to add a dinner recipe and when I copied the ingredients the next page said the app had found a match for the ingredients (there were about 8). The ‘match’ was apples and cinnamon??? These items were not in the recipe, it just randomly added these ingredients..Version: 7.28
Terrible updateThe update has ruined this app for me. When the update happened 3 days ago it created hundreds of reminders I can’t get rid of. I was so confused as to why I was get around 50 notifications for each meal, I went into the reminders part of the app and founds dozens of reminders had been set. I went through and turned them all off, went out of it and when I went back into it they had all been turned back on. So I had to go through each reminder one at a time and delete each one individually. Then a couple of hours later I get 50 notifications to log my lunch!!! I go back into the reminders and each one I painstakingly deleted had reappeared!!! I’ve missed text messages and emails because this is clog up my phone notifications and making my phone over whelmed and slow! If I can’t fix it I will have to delete the app.Version: 19.6.0
Best Health Tracking App On The Market!After downloading a range of apps and paying premiums I’ve finally found the best in the game, this app has it all, calorie tracking, option to add your own recipes so that you can track your intake throughout the day and it also syncs your activity levels via Apple Watch etc. It really is a must have for a better lifestyle, you get all that without even paying a single cent! Can’t wait to upgrade to premium subscription to take full advantage. Well done team 💪🏾🔥.Version: 20.9.0
Already lost 2kgMyFitnessPal has a huge catalogue of foods available to help keep you tracking and accountable, as well as allowing you to scan the barcodes of your food to help log all nutritional values, not just calories. I've used MyFitnessPal for years on and off, never being truly consistent, but I decided a week ago that I needed to lose this 15kg, and by being able to track exactly how many calories I'm consuming, I've been able to drop 2kg already. Only annoying thing is that it constantly insists that you upgrade to premium, not just in order to access other features such as macros and intermittent fasting scheduling, but also leaves a banner on every single tab in the app. If I want to go premium, I will - it's annoying that I have to look at that ribbon advertising premium everywhere..Version: 7.36
Excellent appThis app is excellent it can scan all your foods and tell you what’s in it carbs, sugar, protein etc you add everything you eat drink and what exercise you do and it will tell you how many calories you have left or have consumed- just pick what you want 1,000 1,200 or 1,600 per day - it also has junk food McDonalds KFC - you can add your own recipes too - if you sign up for extras it is not expensive and has some extra features- I was very surprised to see how much sugar was in so called healthy foods and it also links to your steps from your phone and adds it too - Fabulous.Version: 19.8.0
Cost of Premium SubscriptionIt seems to be impossible to find out the cost of the Premium Subscription before signing up for a free trial. This makes it impossible to make an informed consumer decision. I have quite a few app subscriptions, so am genuinely interested in the option of Premium, rather than free. I am going to check out if, not knowing the potential annual costs of subscription, confirms with our Australian Consumer Law - which app would need to conform with if selling to Australian residents through Apple’s App Store. There are quite a few frustrated people in the app’s Community wanting to know both the cost and benefits of Premium Subscription, so developer has sufficient feedback to know this is an issue for some users - an issue developer is obviously not taking seriously. Frankly, I find the lack of information on subscription rates bizarre.Version: 7.27
No Stars!!New update expects me to login and accept conditions every time I open the app. Then it took me forever to find support section where I could actually type MY problem, rather than selecting one of the many known problems. Then after finally completing their security ‘I am not a robot’ steps, they wouldn’t let me submit the email page until, again, I had to look through all of their known problems and click ‘they were no help’. You obviously don’t want to know from people using your app about the bugs in your app. But you want all of our data! I don’t want you to have my data. You do not need my data, unless you are selling it, which you do not have my permission to do!.Version: 19.8.7
Some problems getting correct measurements in metric systemYou do know that most of the world uses the Metric system right? Well this app forgets that. Even though you might change it to metric and for the most part it does display information in this format. When adding food it does not, you still have to manually convert it over yourself. Really a poor oversight from a developer viewpoint. Obvious that it was developed for an American market..Version: 19.12.0
Exercise confusionJust downloaded the app yesterday and so far so good, will take a little getting used to see how good it really is in the long term. However one thing is when entering my exercise I wanted to enter sprinter lunges and side to side jumps but they were only in the strength sub category and didn’t calculate calories so I tried the cardio sub category and both exercises weren’t there at all so I have no idea of the calories I burned. Would it not be valuable to just have all the exercises in both sub categories ? and also enter number of reps as well/instead of minutes ?.Version: 19.12.0
Worth paying for premiumI’ve been using this app on and off for 4 years and have a current consistent streak of 1.33 years. First: The free version is excellent. You don’t have to go to premium. In fact, until you have a reliable habit of entering everything (honestly), I wouldn’t bother. But once you have that reliable entry of data, the Premium option to export data into excel is fantastic. It can be easy to become discouraged when plateaus happen but 2-3 times, a data dump has enabled me to draw very clear cause and effect that helped reinvigorate my efforts. It’s easy to ‘feel’ like you’re doing everything right - but the data tells another story. It also works the other way - showing you when you’ve plateaued because you’ve eaten too little. The macro data is also interesting and helpful. I’ve lost almost 30kg so far, another 10 to go, and I think I would give this app a solid 1/3rd of the credit as a solid, useful tool that isn’t buggy and helps keep me going..Version: 20.20.0
My fitness palVery easy to use and track what you’re eating, and the exercise completed. It can be personalised and updated or changed as desired.I love the reminder to log feature, it keeps me on track. It also tracks weight loss and your goal. This app is not only for weight loss but weight gain also. I have only marked 4* because of the payment feature required for more detailed information on what foods have fat protein or carbs in them . I am not a premium member as I can not afford to pay monthly for this but I assume it would make the app more user friendly and 5*..Version: 7.36
Can’t handle nightshift lifeThis app is great and I’m sure it will help me get on top of my eating, but unfortunately it seems to be hardwired to deal with days without regards to the end user. If I could set what time a “day” happens for me, it would go a long way to a better end-user experience! I’m a nightshift worker, so I wake up at 3pm and go to bed at 7am. For me, “breakfast” lands about 4pm, “lunch” is about 9pm, and “dinner” is while I’m at work, usually 2:30am. However, by the time I get around to putting in my lunch into the system, it’s already decided the day has ended and I’m starting a new day. I’d like to know how many kilojoules I’ve eaten since last I slept, not since some arbitrary time of night..Version: 7.29.1
My bible for weight lossI love just about everything in this app. It’s easy to track my food. The only 2 things I would like to see added and removed is: 1: please add body measurements, these are just as important as weight. Sometimes we lose measurements instead of weight and would be awesome to track these as well. PS this feature is in most other apps! 2: Take the videos from the front page and move them to a tab so you can choose to look at them. This app is my bible for helping with weight loss. Please consider the 2 changes especially the body measurements.Version: 18.8.5
Extremely disappointing customer service!Paid one year upfront premium access. Got an email saying that due to security breach all customers were advised to reset their password. Did so and lost access to premium. Logged the issue with customer support and 5 days in nobody has been able to fix it. Been emailing back and forth and all I got back were standard pre written answers not even addressing what I had written in my email. On top of this in the FAQ section they point iTunes subscription buyers to Apple support and Apple clearly simply tells you they can’t do anything about it. Frustrating to say the least! Warning: Do not get yourself into a prepaid subscription with this app !!! Customer support is ridiculous!!!.Version: 7.34
Great helpAs someone who has struggled with their weight, I find this app extremely useful. I set my goal for my weight and then daily monitor the numbers to ensure I don’t over eat. This is so helpful in particular when your extremely busy. It has helped me to become conscious of the food I eat in between meals and also the foods to stay away. I have a Garmin watch which tracks my activity. The integration between the Garmin and this app is cool. I know at the end of the day whether I’m in the positive or negative based on how much exercise and how much food I’ve eaten..Version: 19.4.5
Lots of bugs with exercise tracking and poor customer supportI initially loved this app for diet tracking. Easy input of foods. But lots of errors when it tries to calculate exercise. It regularly calculates my exercise calorie usage as -940 (yep, it tells me I should reduce calorie intake if I exercise), it sometimes double logs or doesn’t log at all my exercise, and it doesn’t allow manual logging or correcting of exercise for previous days (which is sometimes necessary because I sometimes don’t catch the errors until the following day). All these problems mean I can’t keep an accurate history. I’ve logged problems with customer support but had to wait a week to receive an automated email that said “Please reply if you still want help” (and I’m a premium subscriber)..Version: 19.2.5
A great app but....I just downloaded this after seeing that it was recommended on a fitness/food website. While there are ads that encourage you to go premium, there is not any information that actually states what it will cost per month, even after scrolling through the terms and conditions (I mean honestly, who ever does this?!?) While it is easy to sign up for the Premium free trial and cancel this before payment begins, there really needs to be more upfront info so that consumers can make an informed decision straight away..Version: 7.32
Additional food optionsHey, I really love what you do here, this app has made it so much easier to count my calories and eat the most efficient foods. I don’t know if you guys read these or they are just made to the public, but if you do I think it would be beneficial to both you and the user to add Aldi products to your collection, as I’’ from Melbourne and that is a very prevalent brand here where I get most my shopping from, it is just hard to count your exact calories when your entering slightly inaccurate nutrition information. Anyway, still love the app cheers..Version: 20.20.0
