Plus it has an app you can download for your phone and even scan in barcodes for food you eat and it'll auto add the calories to your daily diary.


I LOVE My fitness pal.

My wife thinks I'm funny, I will sit there, and go through the app before I start cooking so I know what I'm doing. I wont touch my food until I have it in the app, and know what I'm eating.

I don't even think about it anymore. I just use it. I actually freaked about an hour ago, because I went to put in my lunch, and realized that I had forgotten to put in my breakfast.

And the awesome thing about it? I'm able to look at things, and make decisions on the fly. For my son's Birthday, he wanted to have Pizza. I was able to figure out that I could have 2 pieces of pizza, and not completely ruin my day.

I have it set up for 1790 calories a day, and there are some days that I find myself STRUGGLING to get the app to not yell at me for starving myself. (less than 1200 calories).

I've also found creative ways to enjoy my favorite foods. I'm a sucker for pizza. To me, bad pizza, is still good food. So, to curb my pizza love, I've been making my own pizza, on whole wheat flat bread, with pepperoni, tons of veggies, reduced fat cheese, sauce, and what not, and it's still only 450 calories for the whole deal. That's a great dinner when my wife is working late, and the kids ate at the After School Program, leaving me the only one needing to eat.


I can't say enough awesome things about MFP. I've been low-carbing it to lose my excess weight, and MFP is a lifesaver when I need to know what exactly's in my food.

Congratulations Treck :D

Shame you didn't quite beat Paragon to the first kill, but first 25 man isn't too shabby :)

when it comes to world first, I think 25 man is more impressive than 10 mans

Yeah, but if I recall correctly, Paragon came from Nihilum's ashes... or was that Ensidia?

which is why i root for method

if it wasnt for treck i would prob root for blood legion being from the US myself
i hate to say it but world first race..yes i agree 25 man seems more impressive

10s are tuned lighter due to no 10 man raid will ever have EVERY buff all the time, where as 25s are expected to
but for a guild like Paragon, you can have the buffs you need for a given fight, as well as being insanely good at the game, with lighter tuning.

i mean they still deserve props for being world first, but i still say treckie and method deserve mad props for being first 25 man

Pretty sure you can get full buff/debuff coverage with a 5 man group now.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

That was Ensidia, Paragon pretty much always used a paladin + feral as their main tanks.
