Whether you are new to the world of tracking or you are a seasoned veteran - it never hurts to brush up on apps you might not be familiar with. Today, we are going to go through tracking a Signature Meal and a Build-a-Meal on two of the most popular nutrition tracking apps. 

For starters, let's look at MyFitnessPal. This is one of the most popular nutrition tracking apps of all time - and for good reason. It has a very robust food database to search through. But, be aware, much of the data in the database is customer entered. This means that it is prone to error. But, this app is FREE and a GREAT resource for anyone who wants to track their food intake.

DONE!
Click "Add" on the bottom of the screen  and you are DONE!

 

Next up, let's look at tracking with the MyMacros+ app! While this app is not free like MyFitnessPal, the small $2.99 fee is well worth it. For MyMacros+, we do not have our current menu updated in the database, but tracking is just as simple as MyFitnessPal. Check it out below
