Do you have a Christmas holiday hang-over? Now it is back to reality time… and it means getting back to your pre-holiday weight! Yes, whether we want to admit it or not, we are all definitely struggling with a bit (or more) of a post Christmas weight gain. If you’re like me, you probably spent the last 2 weeks of the year attending Christmas parties and get togethers with your family and friends. And what better way to spend time and bond with your loved ones than in front of a celebratory meal!
We all know that our Christmas meal usually means a high calorie food. Now that we are back at work or school with our regular routine back in place, we are more than likely looking for a way to help keep our energy levels up and to lose that excess weight. Here’s a little secret I am going to let you in on. I have found a great pal on my iphone to help keep me on track for losing those extra pounds I gained, it’s called Myfitnesspal!
What is Myfitnesspal?
It is a brainless simple app that you can download instantly for free to help keep track of your calorie intake. All you need to do is search for the food you have eaten (or are thinking of eating) and the app will show you how many calories that food has!
How does it work?
The principle is pretty simple. The more you record or take note of the food you eat on a daily basis, the easier it will be for the app to help you track your calorie intake and even recommend foods that are good and which foods to avoid to help you achieve your ideal weight.

- Contains New Zealand and international brands in the database.
