How to Use Myfitnesspal: A guide
So.. How does one use myfitnesspal? This step by step tutorial will show you how to use myfitnesspal website, an indispensable tool that you can use to log your foods, track your fitness goals and even make some friends. There are million other websites out there that does the same, but myfitnesspal is a tad easier than the rest of them, and again it’s just a personal opinion. Anyways, let’s get down to business.
Step 1: Singing up. Boring step.
Step 2: Log in. Again another boring step.
Step 3: Once you login, it will take you to an account creation page “Create Your Free Account – Step 2 of 3”. This is just a formality, so get it done as soon as you can.
Step 4: Once you are done with the above step, it will take you to another account creation page “Create Your Free Account – Step 3 of 3” , just skip it.
Step 5: Now you will be taken to the “Account Created” page, this page will display a brief summary of your Nutrition and Fitness goals based on the details you’ve given in Step 3. Ignore this summary because it will be no where near accurate. Click on the “Get Started Now!” button.
Step 6: Once you click the green button, you will be taken to the main page which is the only page we will be using henceforth.
Step 7: Click on the “Food” tab at the top to navigate to your food diary.
Step 8: Now you will be seeing your Food Diary page. This is where you will be searching your food and adding it to your diary. Just enter the food you are looking for in the search box and the “search” button.
Step 9: Once you click the search button, you will be given a list of “Matching Foods”, select the one you want. Once you select you can see a box appear on the right side asking you “How Much?” and “To which meal?”, select according to what you want and click the “Add to Food Diary” button.
Step 10: You will be taken to your actual “Food Diary” for the current day and you will be able to see the food you’ve added earlier listed in your diary with all the Nutrition Information.
Congratulations! You’ve just logged your first food to your diary. Repeat the process till you reach your Daily Calories (If your plan is to lose weight/build muscle) or TDEE (If your plan is to maintain weight).
