Be A Pal.


Check out http://www.myfitnesspal.com. It is not only an online calorie and exercise tracker, but it also has nutrition information for pretty much everything you can think of.  It even has specific brands of your favorite items. There is a web-based version, and mobile versions for the iPhone, and Droid.  A version for Blackberry is currently in the works.  The web version has several other features including a calculator that provides nutritional analysis for all your recipes.

So next time you go to order a blueberry muffin at Starbucks, thinking it is a healthy option, look it up in on myfitnesspal first, you may be surprised to find it packs 380 calories, 19 g of fat, and 28 g of sugar and think twice before ordering.

Be Healthy. Be Balanced.
