A website and app that I have recommended to many friends who want to lose a few pounds is www.myfitnesspal.com.
It is a free tool that supports anyone trying to lose weight. I can connect to my profile from my iphone and from my laptop and can log my meals and snacks from both and they will be synchronised.
I use it to monitor my food intake which has the direct effect of making me eat less. Keeping a food diary makes you think twice about having that extra piece of cake or chocolate.
I record my food intake using the database which provides the amount of calories for each item. I also record any exercise I have undertaken and myfitnesspal tells me how many calories I have burned off. Not very many just recently!
You can share your goals or achievements using social networking but I decided against that as well.
Next week I’ll blog on something more serious …. Windows Multipoint server? Maybe.
