Understanding MyFitnessPal the company
MyFitnessPal is a calorie counter & diet tracker. It is an app and website that helps people count their calories by entering it into an online diary, as well as keep track of their exercise. It’s for anyone looking to lose weight or simply maintain a healthy weight. It can be tailored to fit the needs of anyone with specific and/or doctor/dietitian-recommended requirements. There is a huge database of food where basically any food is logged or you can log it yourself.
Next, to this, there is a community, an exercise tracker and of course the calorie counter.
Why this app?
I use the app now for a couple of years and during times when I wanted to lose weight, it came in very helpful. In times where it was just my curiosity leading me to log my food and have some type of control when being on vacation for example. That is why I wanted to do this challenge because I found a great way to improve and enhance the signup flow for the app.
