MyFitness Pal is a helpful tool to help you reach your goals and record your macros when dialing in your nutrition. Our friends over at Working Against Gravity have compiled really good video tutorials over on their YouTube for the most requested MyFitnessPal How-To’s. Here is a list of our top nine tutorials to make it easy for you to access at any time. Bookmark this page if you’re a beginner or new to this information, it’ll be useful!

Here is how to get started.

  • How to Customize Your Macro Goals and Profiles in MyFitnessPal The first step to tracking your macros in MyFitnessPal is setting up your specific goals so that they’re easier to track. Are you looking to lose weight or gain muscle? This tutorial and video walk you step by step through the process of how to customize your Macro goals.
  • How to Customize Your Macro Goals Using MyFitnessPal Premium Just like the first tutorial listed, this tutorial is all about using the premium version with your macros in MyFitnessPal. The premium version lets you list the exact macros to the decimal. The free version only lets you enter ballpark numbers. We strongly recommend investing in the premium version if you are going to take this seriously. It is worth it.
  • How to Check Your Macros and Micros in MyFitnessPal Once you’ve set up your numbers in the MyFitnessPal app, you need to be consistent at checking the numbers throughout the day so you know what you can (and can’t) fit into your nutrition plan that day. When you first start this you will be surprised at how fast those macros can disappear. Pro Tip: Put those meals in after you make them to speed up the process.

Hopefully, these tutorials and tips help you using MFP. We will see ya next week with more Nutrition tips.
