  • Successful

    by Adelaibarra

    Me and my coworker have been doing this for a month and lost more than 14 lbs.

  • Must be used

    by Jastone3

    This is a great app, if you use it. Skipping days or not logging in food will just mess things up. Tracking your calories really helps the diet.

  • Easy Use

    by coachdrebeth

    Easy to use, easy to keep track of my intake.

  • Great

    by LegitbatmAn

    Good way to keep track of calories for whatever purpose

  • Great app

    by Jaffiejo

    Helps you find good quick and help you keep track of everything well

  • My Fitness Pal

    by April14mom

    Been using it for over a year & it helps me stay on track. Love that it syncs with my FitBit! Great all around.

  • Great! (No words)

    by Oscar Gongora

    Thank you! Your app is currently helping me by losing weight. I have lost 61 lbs so far. I have a long way to go but I know I am not doing it alone. THANK YOU!

  • MyFitnessPal

    by TheOtherStevens

    I'm enjoying it and finding it to be mostly helpful.

  • Like it a lot

    by PodcastFan2

    Great app. Easy to track all my food.

  • Great App - lots of foods available and easy to track!

    by cholula

    Love it!

  • Love it

    by BreezyBri182

    This app has really helped me realize what I'm putting in my body every day

  • Great App

    by puperik

    So easy to use and I like that you can scan foods to easily add to list. Some room for improvement but that is not a bad thing

  • Works great

    by Jessgugs

    Love it. Easy to use

  • Great app but skeptical on activity levels

    by Carlos Rendon

    I think this is a great app for one to log the amount of calories consumed, however I don't think it has accurate metrics for the calculated activity level and how that adds to calories consumed. Also calories burned during a body building/xfit workout aren't counted :( other than that, I like how you can scan the barcode to log your food. Great app for that but could use improvement on exercise part

  • Love it

    by Poopbear678

    It really does help you stay on track

  • Wish for a few more things

    by M Dugg

    I originally had this app before baby. I liked it a lot it helped me be more aware of my calories. During pregnancy I wasn't able to fully use the app as well I was having to eat a bit more because my 1200 calories just wasn't cutting it while feeding 2. I eventually stopped using it without the time or energy to focus on pregnancy & a 2 year old. After baby of course like every other woman is wanting to lose baby weight. I wanted to use this app but it doesn't have a choice for breast feeding I did read on sites eat about such & such calories but it would really be great if this app had that included. Breastfeeding burns at least 500 calories a day - I feel It should be an option.

  • Great app.

    by davidww51

    Love the barcode scanner. Has a great data base to.

  • LOVE!!

    by Tifferdoo

    by Midmoo

    Best tracking app so far

  • Awesome!!!

    by Survivor4982

    Great app, it's really helping me lose weight!!!

  • Won't update

    by Kimmy6

    I have an iPhone 5. Every time I've logged in the past couple days, it doesn't show an update. Instead, it will show what someone posted 2 days ago, even though I completed my entry. I have to keep pulling it down and it still takes a few minutes to update. Have never had this problem before.

  • Use It Every Day

    by Tnat45

    Fantastic product

  • Easy to track

    by MysticMommy

    I love this app. Makes tracking my food so easy! No excuse for not journaling what I eat! I would love to be able to group foods I commonly eat together as a recipe or one-click meal. If that's possible, I haven't figured out how yet.

  • Need help!!

    by CREW

    This is excellent for tracking calories. It has such a large data base you can look at items in restaurants to help decide what to order. Lost 9lbs already controlling portions and calorie intake. It also helps you eat three regular meals a day plus track ur exercise.

  • Great app!

    by Sillygirlbaby

    Syncs seamlessly with Map My Walk, has a huge food database, and is easy to use. I love this app!

  • Extensive database

    by GUAMton

    American living in the UK and I can hop from US foods to local brands easily. Only wish searching for my frequent items came easier. Foods I've added to 'Breakfast' aren't easily found when I search them to add to 'lunch' or 'dinner'.

  • Won't work on 5s

    by Eatadick702

    Love the app, always have but I'm unable to do anything besides change settings and browse the feed. Can't track exercise/intake

  • Awesome app

    by Ericagirl

    Love this app! I was going to sign up for weight watchers to help me get rid of my post baby weight...but I got this app and realized this is all I need! I would have give give stars if it was possible to better personalize the caloric goal. I'm a breastfeeding mom, so I need more calories than usual. I would love if I could have this as an option in the settings! I must say, the database of foods is amazing.

  • Fabulous!

    by Ishkabibble2032

    I love this app so much and use it every day! I've lost 25 lbs by using it and it's helped me keep track of what I eat and how much. I like the ability to connect to other apps such as Pedometer to record how many calories I burn while walking or running at different speeds. Great app and definitely my favorite! :)

  • 50 pounds and counting

    by Anna smith 272727

    This site helped me lose over 50 pounds. It's so easy to log all my foods and trac my progress and I am so grateful for it. This app is so wonderful!

  • Love!

    by Allison8935

    I love this app and how it shows all the different things you are getting from each of the things you eat.

  • Love it!

    by amygomez2005

    I'm finally learning how to eat right in a fun and easy way. Favorite foods are easy to find and the bar scanner works great! Can't get easier than that!

  • Awesome

    by Osu osu osu

    I love how you can scan the bar code because sometimes it is a pain in the butt to find the food you ate. I just wish it was one step easier.

  • Awesome sauce

    by She's a revolutionary

    Love this app. I. Don't know why it took me so long to get serious about this healthier lifestyle but I must admit I'm hooked. I'm becoming a my fitness pal fanatic. I don't eat anything without journaling it. Anything.

  • Super useful!

    by LozaViajera

    I love it. I was never a calorie counter so this makes life so much easier. It really helps that they have my ethnic food on there because that was a concern. Love!

  • I love the app!

    by Gon Hntn

    I have been using this off and on for a year and it is a motivator for me! It keeps me honest and the integration with my Fitbit and MapMyRide is great!

  • Love this app!

    by Rainbow Ranch Girl

    I've always thought that food tracking was the key to weight loss but couldn't find a convenient way to do it until now. Amazing data base that contains almost every item I scan or search for. It couldn't be easier to track my food so doing it every day is pretty effortless.

  • 5 Star

    by Beast Mode G

    I highly recommend this app for those who want to be accountable for what they eat. For the bodybuilders, this is a great tool to help you keep your macros in check.

  • Good app.

    by Ollers3sons

    I love the app. It sinks very well with my Fitbit. The only 2 downfalls are it doesn't show you confirmation of completing a food log and it's confusing if I already submitted it. The other problem is when you do log straight it had an error of only logging x amount of days instead of being accurate. Those are minor and I love the app!!!

  • Best app ever!!!

    by Louie5269

    This is the best app ever, has the scan feature which all you do Is scan it an the rest the app does! You use it right you'll lose weight fast!!! It tells you everything!! What your eating calories !! You don't have the app your missing out !!!

  • Love it!

    by Jj1452


  • My Fitness Pal

    by meg/6foot

    I have been using the app for a month and I can't believe how easy it is to use. It is rare that I can't find a food in the database. I use this with by Fitbit and it works seamlessly. I would recommend this app for anyone trying to lose weight .

  • Nice app

    by w-five

    Could use the ability to update ingredient names, but otherwise useful.

  • Excellent App!!

    by Lorelei69

    No complaints!

    Great App. I use it everyday.

    by BigKPstar

    It's so easy to use and a very comprehensive database! Takes the guess work out of tracking calories and nutrition. Really like that I can track my food and exercise together.

  • Won't let me put in my birthday! PLEASE HELP

    by Blah blah 8

    PLEASE FIX!!! I haven't been able to even sign up because it won't let me put in my birthday. Mine is oct. 19, 1998 &when I put it in, then it brings it to feb. 11, 1996. Please fix!!! I really need this app for a class!

  • East to Use

    by bearbonez

    Love the app. Social. Easy to use and add food. THANKS!

  • My review

    by LOV3YOU

    I think this app is great but I wish it would have how many calories I burn in certain weight training excersies like my legs and biceps etc

  • Great app!

    by HashtagInstaAwesome

    Awesome app! Really helps you stay on track : )

  • My new best friend

    by Mrswillis09

  • Outstanding. Really works well.

    by generalspencer

    This app is simply outstanding. I would highly recommend it.

  • Best calorie counting app!

    by klucretia

    Super easy to use, and such an awesome database of food. I've been using it for 15 days and I've lost 7 pounds!

  • Calendar sync?

    by Ebazooka

    I absolutely LOVE this app! I think it would be a great addition to be able to log important dates, and have the app remind you of how many days are remaining until the event. This way, it'll definitely keep your weight loss streak going--talk about motivation!

  • Love it

    by MsMariHernandez

    Great app

  • Best app

    by Chinna919

    Love it! It keeps me on track and gives useful tips in sticking to my goals.

  • Great App!

    by Balke211

    Easy to use, very helpful way to monitor your daily nutrition. Works well with Fitbit and Pact.

  • Very helpful.

    by Sue Gresham

    Easy to use and helpful in monitoring intake.

  • Loved it before update

    by betsy lover

    I loved this app but I did the update and do not like it now. Instead of giving me my daily calories I should be consuming but now it gives me for the whole week. When I check to see what my weight would be if I continued it gives me off the wall numbers ie, " if you continue you will weigh 99,978.56 in 5 weeks" not making it up. That was the exact number it gave me. It is not user friendly when trying to input homemade food. Hope to see this get fixed.

  • Great App

    by Matt-T

    As someone who hates logging into stuff, it says a lot when I take the time to log into the App Store to rate an app. MFP is the best among the best, and there's no replacement for everything it does.

  • Love this app

    by Indiana854

    Hope they'll add some new stuff in the future.

  • MfP

    by Yeseniia20

    I love this app MfP tells me everything i need to know!! Lost 10 lbs already:)

  • Great app!

    by mrszimdars

    Been using it two weeks and already lost post baby weight! The database is incredible.

  • Its very good

    by TheslimoneAKA

    It needs a section for drinks other than water and lifting weights for excercise.

  • Fantastic!

    by Zombiefacerawr

    This app is very easy to use and is super helpful!

  • Love it!

    by Calvinsgyrl2

    Have been using for a few weeks now. EASY to use! Very user friendly! Love that you add friend and be encourage and give praise to their fitness efforts. Only thing I wish it could do is share my created recipes.

  • Love it!

    by Haleymariephil

    Love this app! It's as good as the weight watchers app that I was paying for...maybe even better. It has a huge database and the feature to add multiple items from recent list is great.

  • Great app!

    by Lalalqfhg

    This app is wonderful! I have lost 6.5 lbs! It is easy to use and has information about most foods.

  • Awesome

    by Usftonebone

    I like this app

  • Myfitnesspal

    by Jamafor

    It hasn't let me down yet. I like it.

  • Great app!

    by Rimedragona

    This is a great app, and has helped me with controlling what I eat. I didn't realize just how much I are sometimes! One thing that could be improved are easier editing of recipes, rather than going into the menu of the app. It really is counterintuitive. You shouldn't need to google it to figure it out.

  • Amazing system

    by Kindred I

    I love it!

  • Great app

    by Suzanne Kickhaefer

    Love the barcode scan!

  • Worth your time

    by Meme925

    It's effective and accurate.

  • Amazing app

    by Adrienne Oakes

    Keeps the daily calorie count in an easy to use app. Has a huge database of foods. It's unlike any nutrition app I've used before. I recommend it 100%.

  • Great APP

    by Moes4

    This has been a great app for me. It holds you accountable for how many calories you eat each day. Very easy to access. Love this app will recommend it to friends.

  • Best Calorie Counting App!

    by LaFrenchie

    This is a really great app, and I would recommend it for anyone. It would get 5 stars if you could add photos of your meals to share with friends!

  • Just a great App

    by HartajS

    I have been very good about watching calories, but this App takes it to another level. I am Indian and it has the calorie listing if every food I have ever looked for (except for one). Really unbelievable how it comes up with stuff. Shocks me on occasion with various Indian foods and their calories. I love this App and would be willing to pay a one-time fee for it (up to $10), that is how useful I find it. Not that I want to pay tho...;) and I am not a Company person. Thanks.

  • Nice!

    by Eazy3056

    Great app. Loves that it feeds data over to my body bugg

  • Food library is impressive

    by SarH J

    I love this app! Every food I look up it finds no problem even many restaurants..I wouldn't think it contained so much data it's awesome and makes it fun to use!! I've had apps before that couldn't give me accurate food calorie lookup and I would have to try and find it through google (which is discouraging). I also love how I can make recipes! I've lost 3 lbs in a week and I'm excited!

  • Helpful weight-loss tool!

    by Setter #10

    Love this app! After three weeks I have lost four pounds and can't wait to see more results.

  • Easy and effective

    by GH47946

    This is a super simple way to track calories. Especially if you are looking to limit carbs. The program takes all the guesswork out of it.

  • Where has this App been all my life

    by Miri73

    If you're serious about loosing weight and focusing on your health with dedication this is the App for you. It's very user friendly, excellent data base if foods and their specific nutritional value. It also synchs with very well with my exercise App and calculates everything for me. I don't see it as work I actually look forward to logging in my info. Also it's the best App I have, it's overall functionality is superb! Needless to say, I highly recommend My Fitness pal.

  • Great piece!

    by Chehu

    The only fault is not having preset exercises with some default calorie expenditures. Given everyone is different, they could at least put a little bit of them. Other than this this app is fantastic

  • Great app!!!

    by Dave62485

    Easy to use just be honest with yourself

  • Better than most

    by sexxy

    I like it how they monitor exercise and measure your nutrients. I like also how it evaluates your calories intake. I had Lose It! But I like Fitness Pal

  • Extensive database

    by Aldell

    Wow! This database has everything!

  • Love this app!

    by Jodie Valenti

    I hate counting calories and keeping track of every little thing I consume. This app takes the hassle away and makes it super easy for me to keep track of even the smallest of foods!!! I love the ability to scan foods too! Now I know exactly what I'm consuming in a day!

  • Great app!

    by Dspenk

    It's kept me on track. First time ever.

  • Amazing and necessary for pre contest

    by bigpete405

    I've been using this to track micros, and macros. It's a amazing.

  • Habit-changing

    by Kibblesamillions

    Really good accountability app. It makes you aware of just what's in the food you eat. I've used it for 3 weeks and lost 8 pounds.

  • Great App!

    by BnayNay

    This app has worked wonders on me. I link it to my Fitbit. It has kept me aware of just what I eat and on track with my daily exercise. In 4 months I am down 20lbs and I feel so much better!! The good database is amazing!! My only problem is that the sync between this app and my fitbit doesn't always happen manually. I have to unconnected it and re-connect it but other than I would absolutely recommend it!!

  • So easy

    by Jakegley

    I have used many tracking apps before, but this one is so easy and the UPC scanning makes for a much easier experience! I wish you were able to incorporate macro goals into the program instead of just using a flat calorie goal, but the functionality is great, easy to use and works for all levels of users for food tracking

  • Great !!!!

    by Oneflygirl

    I love the fact that I can cheer my friends along and they can do the same to me !

  • Great App

    by Vincent Garcia

    Love this app! Extremely helpful, keeps me on track. Easy to use.
