Things really changed when I began to use the one app, that had been sitting on my iPhone for months gathering digital dust.

The app was MyFitnessPal and it changed the way I was working on my fitness. It kept me accountable on my input and output.

Basically you record what you eat and what you do exercise wise and monitor your weight as you go.

If you think you can just eat whatever you want, as long as you are exercising then don’t be surprised when your weight loss goals crumple in a heap.

They say you are what you eat, and when it comes to getting fit, or loosing weight, what you put into your mouth is 7/10’s of the equation. Yep that is right, you heard me correctly – 70% of the fitness equation is attributed to your diet.

Get your diet right and you are 7/10’s of the way there. Exercise is important but the thick edge of the wedge is food. This is why MyFitnessPal is such a great little helper.
