My Fitness Pal or Calorie count?
I had a weird day yesterday trying out those tools and giving a go at counting calories. I am very new to this.
For lunch I had a small burritos with a cucumber and avocado salad just with lemon juice and salt. The combination was delicious but…
I was not aware of the calories in an avocado!!! For me it was just a healthy vegetable (it still is but at a price). I guess I will learn on time.
I did my exercise on the Wii Fit and increased my goal since I was not quite dead as I finished. I am not planning on killing myself but counting calories might do it anyway .
Well I am far to be an expert on any of those tracking tools but I will certainly share my opinion anyway.
Both tools seems to be able to do the same things like recording your weight and progress, you can make recipes, track your food, water and exercise. Calorie Count asked me for my body type and I have big bones so I think it is then more accurate because it makes a difference on the weight and having a realistic healthy goal. I have tried Calorie count and I found it very complicated! I was creating recipes and it took me forever to work it out. With MyFitnesPal I was there for about 15 minutes and I made a recipe, entered my food and exercise easily. I find MyFitnessPal so much clearer and simple! The pal also do the maths and includes the calories burned to your daily goal so if you exercised you might have a little more calories to spear!
I know I am not very technical but I will definitely go with the Pal to help me control what I eat and help me keep motivated to reach my goal.
