So all of My Fitness Pal friends.. err, I mean my ONE MFP friend
I tried Weight Watchers.
Because I didn't like it.
Now hear me out.. WW and MFP are VERY similar. Look at these 2 Screen Captures of WW mobile and MFP mobile..
That is one of the reasons I have decided to stick with MFP and drop WW. The whole point system is really kind of annoying to me. And because I find it annoying, I know it's a system I wouldn't stick with. I also despised knowing that my free trial was about to end and I was going to have to start paying to use it. I'm sorry, but there are so many other free options out there, and I'm a poor 23 year old, so I'm always choosing free. Period.
MFP is free. I can use it on my phone or on my laptop. I can scan the barcode on things I'm eating and the calories automatically get added in. No calculating points. I can adjust the serving size or type in my own calorie count if I need to. I also like that I can select the exercise I did and it will calculate approximately how many calories I've burned. I say approximately because everyone is different so you may be burning more or less than they say you should be, doing that specific activity for the specific amount of time. Either way, I like that.
Weight Watchers works for some people, I know this I get this. But it didn't work for me. My Fitness Pal and I seem to have quite the monogamous relationship now. So for my one MFP friend.. I'll be back today!
If you'd like to add me as a My Fitness Pal friend: kaystoll129
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this battle royale. Who uses Weight Watchers? Who uses My Fitness Pal? Who's tried both (like me)? Does anyone use something completely different that works?
