My Fitness Pal and Fitbit
Did anyone know that you can now link your Fitbit with your My Fitness Pal account? I had no idea and just found out. This is great for me because I really liked the Fitbit, but I didn't like their food or exercise database. So I never got accurate information because I would log my food and exercise into MFP and my activity would be in Fitbit, so it didn't work too good. Now whenever you log your information into MFP, it automatically connects with your Fitbit account. Your calorie budget can be automatically adjusted based on your activity level tracked by Fitbit for the day. Also, when you login to Fitbit.com, you will see all of your calories and exercise entered from MFP.
When you log your exercise on MFP it asks you what time you completed it so it will accurately adjust your calories.
I had stopped using my Fitbit, but I think I'll try it again!
You can find out more at here and you can link your Fitbit and MFP accounts here.
