Any MyFitnessPal Members in the area?

    Just wondering if anyone in Arlington is a MyFitnessPal member?  I’ve been doing it since last year, and have been hoping more people would input food from some of the local restaurants.  I’ve found it to be a great application, since it reduces everything to numbers – and when I deal with numbers, I can control the outcome.  If you’re a local restaurant owner, please add your calories.

    Yeah, I tried to use MyFitnessPal on my iPhone (4S). It is not easy to use the local restaurants. Example: If you have tacos from Fuego in Clarendon, you do not know what to add. The options in the database are generic. Sometimes some listings contradict each other. I have found that only nationwide chains or distributed foods are listed. In any way, I used it for 4-weeks then gave it up. You end up spending time trying to figure out how many calories are in a falafel at Zaytinya’s? I like the application, due to it the calorie count. But, I don’t use it now.
