MyRecipes + MyFitnessPal = Calorie-Counting Bliss

October 21, 2014 | By | Comments (3)

The Editors of MyRecipes.com are beyond excited to announce that there’s now a new way to use our vast collection of recipes. Starting today, you can log any recipe on our site into your MyFitnessPal account, making it easy to reach your weight-loss goals and make healthy choices for your family.

How does it work? It’s simple. Get started by going to any of your favorite recipes. Every recipe, from cheesecakes to cheese steaks to casseroles, now features a Log It button:

MyFitnessPal

Simply plan your dinner, then click the Log It feature to transfer all the nutrition information from that recipe in your MyFitnessPal account (you can sign up with them for free via email or with any social media account).

If you’re already a member of the CookingLightDiet.com, the button is also available on the recipes there, making it easy to see your calorie count for the day. Not a member? Check it out now!

So far, people are pretty excited about it (thanks, Mashable!), which is great because we are, too.

According to MyFitnessPal, users who log recipes lose nearly 40% more weight than those who don’t. So, you tell us. What’s your goal? Losing ten pounds? Getting into that one pair of jeans? Having more energy? Living a healthier lifestyle? We’re all about helping you make that easier. Head over to MyFitnessPal and sign up for a free account to get started, then start meal planning using the amazing dishes on MyRecipes.com.

Stop counting calories (we’ll do that for you!) and start having fun. See you back here soon!

    If I understand your post…this only works on recipes here. It doesn’t have an option for you to add your favorite family gems and track them as well.
