Count Those Calories! Keep Yourself Healthy!

My sister-in-law and her husband came by the house last night and I was surprised to see them lost a lot of weight! Both of them have been on diet for years and obviously, their weight loss program is working great this time! They said it was easy! They simply watch the food they eat daily with the use of a calorie counter that teaches them nutritional contents, which also helps make their own food choices. And the great news is: they never spent a penny for doing that because they use the calorie counter of MyFitnessPal.

MyFitnessPal is a free diet and fitness website that uses a Basal Metabolic Rate or bmr calculator using the Mifflin-St. Jeor equations which is said to be more accurate than the more commonly used Harris-Benedict equations. A BMR is an estimate number of calories you need to burn if you were to do nothing but rest for 24 hours. It represents the amount of energy that you need to make your body functioning. It is based on weight, height, age and gender. It also has a Body Mass Index or bmi calculator that serves as a guide to help you decide your target weight. BMI is the measure of body mass based on height and weight. There are a lot of help that you can get from MyFitnessPal with regards to losing weight and keeping yourself healthy and fit. Where else could you find something like this for free? With MyFitnessPal, losing weight should never be a problem.
