Being able to track what you eat and the calories you’re burning with exercise can empower you to make much better decisions (especially during this temptation-ridden holiday season).

RkMfpThat’s why we love MyFitnessPal as a partner for Runkeeper! In case you haven’t heard, MyFitnessPal provides real-time nutrition and fitness tracking, insights and community support. You can easily find calorie data for the foods you’re consuming every day–say next week’s big slice of pumpkin pie–to make sure you’re keeping things under control!


When you connect Runkeeper and MyFitnessPal, you’ll be able to seamlessly track two very major aspects of your overall health—exercise and nutrition—without unnecessary and clunky extra steps:

• You’ll see the calories you’ve counted in MyFitnessPal displayed in your feed on (Don’t worry, you can make them so only you can see them here.)

• And the calories you burn off while tracking activities with Runkeeper will automatically be credited and reflected in your net calorie count on MyFitnessPal—no extra math or input needed on your end!

• Plus, weight information syncs across both apps, so any Runkeeper-connected scale you use will shoot that information over to MyFitnessPal.

You can connect your two accounts here (be sure to sign up for MyFitnessPal account if you don’t have one yet).
