MyFitnessPal

I really like using MyFitnessPal personally but also am aware of my triggers and how monitoring my weight could turn into unhealthy behavior. I do not recommend it if people are not at that point, but only if folks want to monitor their weight/food intake.

It's well suited for businesses who are looking for a way to approach employee wellness in a fun and fresh manner. It also helps create a little more connection between teams within the business and across other departments.

  • Sometimes, my Fitbit and even my Max device would have issues synching.
  • There weren't daily challenges, like the Fitbit. That made me have to use both apps, which was more work.

      I like Apple Health as a more holistic app but like using MyFitnessPal for more general weight management.

      DESTROYS the competition. I am so happy that Virgin Pulse took over the capabilities that Gilsbar was in charge of due to Gilsbar 's lack of user-friendly, up to date, technology.

      • No ROI other than if the people chose not to use it, then the company saves money.
      • [I believe] it causes people's personal information to be disseminated without any concern.
      • [In my opinion,] they are not willing to help ever.
