SparkPeople vs. MyFitness Pal- My Opinion
Monday, October 14, 2013
I guess to each his own because I couldn't get into Myfitness pal. A few months ago I had a trainer that insisted I join his group on Myfitness so he could help monitor My tracks. And I didn't find it easy to navigate. Nor was the interface as nice.
I was trying to get away from prepared food so the barcode scanner wasn't helpful and creating recipes then breaking them into portions was extreamly difficult.
As far as the support. I am a huge blogger. And I didn't like that I couldn't video blog. I could only post links to my YouTube posts.
I've also found that the people I communicate with on spark are more realistic and there are way more groups I can relate to.
Last I prefer spark people because of the peer review. Last week I was planning to try a diet supplement called ACE and I quickly jumped on Spark People and Read the peer review. When I looked at a few comments about ACE on my fitness, I got the impression half of them were distributors.
Ohhhh I had even considered corset training and sure nuff there were peer reviews on spark and nothing on myfitness pal.
I didn't mean to rant but I love the motivation I get when I'm on sparkpeople vs. Myfitness Pal.
