“Whether you’re looking to get in shape for the new school year or just want to begin a new exercise program and are eager to see results, it all begins with nutrition. But many college students (myself included) may not know where to start.

MyFitnessPal does a great job of keeping track of the food you eat, as well as tracking all your workouts. The MyFitnessPal app was super helpful to me during my undergraduate career. I played offensive line throughout high school and college, and once I was done playing, I weighed well over 300 pounds, with minimal knowledge about nutrition. I had no idea where to start to get to a healthier weight.

This app helped me understand how I could adjust my portions based off the amount of physical activity I was getting for the day.  I’ve used MyFitnessPal since 2013, and it has helped me keep off the nearly 100 pounds I’ve lost since then.

The app itself is very user-friendly and makes working toward your health and/or fitness goals that much easier. 10/10—would recommend MyFitnessPal to anyone looking to make a healthy lifestyle change!”
