Experts agree that MyFitnessPal is comprehensive and easy to use. "It covers cardio, strength training and food," says Margreta Rempert, association director of personal training at the Y of Central Maryland. "It's helpful for folks trying to hit that weight loss goal." Alison Massey, a registered dietitian and diabetes educator at Mercy Medical Center, agrees, noting that the app allows users to set specific weight loss goals and easily track calorie intake and expenditure. Dr. Mark Lamos, president and medical director at GBMC/GBMA Primary Care personally praises MyFitnessPal's ease of use: using the app, he lost 107 pounds. "It integrates with my day planner app for reminders," he says. "And it allows for any exercise plan."
