Now that Jon and I are training for a half marathon and have a few weddings this summer that we'd like to be in better shape for, I've been logging meals, water intake, and exercise in My Fitness Pal nearly daily. I've used the app on and off for a couple of years now, and I've always found it easier to maintain a healthy breakfast and lunch rather than dinners, especially on weekdays as opposed to weekends. (Weekend dinners are basically my downfall for the entire week.) But I'm trying to get better and am making an effort to enter everything I eat, which is very hard. I remind myself that just because I didn't enter it in MFP doesn't mean I didn't eat it. It's amazing how hard I try to convince myself otherwise.
I noticed after a recent update to MFP that now it tells you a little something about the food you've just entered, such as "This food has lots of vitamin C!" or "This food is high in saturated fat." (I'm looking at you, cappuccino.) This has been really helpful and enlightening, though admittedly also slightly deflating. I hadn't thought of a cappuccino as high in saturated fat because to me it was just a type of caffeinated beverage slightly more caloric than coffee because of steamed milk. I stand corrected.
