    Has anyone used this program? Did you find it helped?
    Pros…cons?

    I've always done WW in the past with success, but I need to get back on the wagon but I need to shake things up a bit (well, a lot). I find here, with the WW meetings they really push the processed chemical laden snacks/foods and don't help you come up with better alternatives.

    I tried loseit.com a few years ago. I liked it but I preferred myfitnesspal.com. I'm sure it's changed but I don't think it had the barcode scanner when I used it. I love the barcode scanner on mfp.

    I'm doing WW now. They really do push a lot of prepackaged food.

    I'm a big fan of MyFitnessPal for the barcode scanner alone. It's very easy for me to scan a barcode for a prepackaged meal at my university (or do a quick search for a similar item if it is not prepackaged) and can easily determine my carb counts and whether that meal fits into my calorie goal.

    I also use myfitnesspal. I can integrate it with my fitbit. You can also enter in recipes and save them to get counts for things you make from scratch. It takes some time at first but then you get a little database built up and it's much quicker.
