    "IMO MyFitnessPal is the best macro tracking app! But i dont think you'll enjoy this if you are just using it for free rather than its premium version. Because in the premium, i am able to set a target for each macros. That helps me to clearly see if i am getting close to my target. Amazing eh?"

    "I use this to count my calories and macros and it gets the job done. This helps me regulate my weight by inputting the food I take every day. It's one of the better tracker apps, but I do wish it had more features like including Sunday in the calendar. "

DID YOU KNOW? 

Did you know that being fit improves your IQ? According to healthguidance.org, being fit improves your IQ, though the mechanisms are unknown, this has to do with the cardiovascular and the increased oxygen getting to your brain, as well as using more of your brain for your movement and coordination (the motor cortex) and the increase of certain hormones released in your brain including dopamine and neurotransmitters. In tests, it was found that the concentration and memory of those who did regular exercise was improved. There are a lot of benefits to being fit. This includes being able to improve mood, looks, sex drive, immune system, protecting you from heart diseases, improving circulatory system, deepening your voice, and a lot more. 

To be able to be fit, one technique is to "Macro". According to bodybuilding.com, "To macro" means tracking the number of grams of protein, carbohydrates, and fats you consume on a particular day. Bodybuilders and physique competitors have mastered this art and have no qualms about whipping out their food scale at any given moment. For the rest of us, it means going out and buying a scale, taking the time to do the measurements and calculations, and perhaps most imposing of all, setting aside the mental bandwidth to actually care about the results. Nowadays, apps designed for macro tracking are being developed like My Macros+. This app helps users to track their diet as well as getting a graph of their diet evolution.
