A rigorous exercise schedule helps you maintain your ideal weight, but how much you eat is just as important. Sometimes, a calorie-torching workout can feel like an excuse to eat that sinful slice of chocolate cake you’ve been craving, but how do you keep from overcompensating? Tracking calories is a great way to ensure you’re not consuming more calories than you burn.
That’s why runtastic has teamed up with the like-minded fitness resource MyFitnessPal. MyFitnessPal, a free tool to help people improve their health, lets users log daily food consumption and report workouts. Through new partnerships with runtastic and a select group of other companies, users can more accurately incorporate physical activity into their calorie logs online or via mobile devices.
With the debut of MyFitnessPal’s application programming interface (API), runtastic users can seamlessly sync real-time exercise data to MyFitnessPal. This app-to-app integration is available in the newest versions of runtastic’s Pedometer and runtastic apps. Users of both apps will now have a more complete view of their overall health.
We’re proud to be working with MyFitnessPal, as runtastic is always looking for new ways to help our users reach their health and fitness goals. Whether you want to shed a few pounds or make sure you’re eating enough to fuel your race training, monitoring nutrition is important.
