Manually logging your weight every day or every week can be a pain. Fortunately, MyFitnessPal has partnered with iHealth, which designs innovative, mobile personal healthcare products. With this partnership, both of the iHealth scales now sync your weight data automatically and wirelessly with your MyFitnessPal account - so you don't have to.
The iHealth Wireless Scale uses Bluetooth technology to instantly measure, save, and track your weight. This scale is lightweight, can be used offline, and supports multiple users so the whole family can use it. The iHealth Wireless Scale saves you time by syncing your weight directly into your MyFitnessPal diary. It retails for only $69.95 and can be purchased here.
The iHealth Wireless Body Analysis Scale offers a more in-depth view of your overall health. It measures and tracks multiple characteristics of your body composition: weight, body fat, lean mass, muscle mass, bone mass, body water, body mass index, and visceral fat rating. The scale can keep track of up to 20 individuals. It costs $109.95 and can be bought here.
All ready to sync your iHealth scale with your MyFitnessPal account? Get started now!

We are thrilled to announce another new partnership—this time, with Zumba Fitness, an effective, Latin-inspired dance fitness party. We’ve heard your requests, and you can now track the calories you’ve burned in your latest Zumba class through MyFitnessPal. Simply log into MyFitnessPal, visit your diary, add "Zumba" to your exercise list, and voila! Your Zumba calories will be added to your Daily Summary, increasing your Net Calories for the day. So be sure to log into MyFitnessPal to track your Zumba calorie burn, and take another step closer to good health and happiness.
PS – Zumba Fitness recently launched The Great Calorie Drive, through which it will donate the calories you shake off in a Zumba class to the United Nations World Food Programme and Feeding America to help end global hunger. It runs from now until June 30th, so start "donating" today!
We've heard a lot of requests for updates to the Android app, and we’ve been hard at work to accommodate those requests. Now, we’re looking for a limited group of avid MyFitnessPal Android users to try out the Beta version of our latest Android app and share their experiences with us.
What's in it for me?
This is a unique opportunity for you to gain priority access to the newest version of MyFitnessPal before it becomes publicly available. You will also play a critical role in shaping the development of our Android app and ensuring that it meets your needs and the needs of your fellow members.
What do I need to do to sign up for the beta test?
All you need to do is fill out this form; we’ll take it from there. This is a limited beta test, and there is a chance you won’t be selected. With that said, we will do our best to give priority to those who respond first. And for those of you who don’t get selected, please don’t be disappointed. You can rest assured that this is coming soon to a phone near you!
Is there anything else I should know?
Anyone with an Android device can apply, but if you are accepted, please be prepared to answer a few questions about your experience with the app (i.e. give us your opinion about the application, and let us know of any bugs/crashes that you encounter).
So go ahead and sign up today. We’ve got some exciting changes in store for you, and we’re eager to hear what you think.
We look forward to working with you!

Based on popular demand, MyFitnessPal is now integrated with UP by Jawbone. UP® is a wristband and app system that helps you understand how you sleep, move, eat, and feel, and how each of those activities affects the others.
With this new integration, you will be able to push all of your UP activity data—and the associated caloric burn—directly to your MyFitnessPal account. By collecting all this information in one place, MyFitnessPal allows you to better understand your daily activity and how that relates to your health goals. You will also be able to see each meal you’ve logged with MyFitnessPal in the UP app feed, with its associated nutritional data.
Starting today, UP's MyFitnessPal integration is available on iPhone and coming soon for Android. If you're raring to link your Jawbone account to MyFitnessPal to create a more complete picture of your personal health, visit the MyFitnessPal (or the Jawbone) App Gallery on your iPhone and get started. And if you don’t yet own an UP, visit Jawbone’s website and use the code MFPSHIP to get free shipping.
Thank you all for your continued feedback and requests! We are constantly looking for ways to simplify the process of tracking your nutrition and exercise for you, so please keep them coming.

We are thrilled to announce that MyFitnessPal has partnered with two leading fitness equipment platforms, Johnson Heath Tech and Netpulse, in an effort to make it easier for you to capture fitness data from your gym workouts.
Netpulse offers a personalized media experience for fitness equipment, and MyFitnessPal has been integrated into its new web platform, NetpulseOne. This means that if your gym uses equipment powered by NetpulseOne, you will be able to sync your fitness data with your MyFitnessPal exercise log, to make tracking as smooth and accurate as possible. And since Netpulse has partnerships with 8 of the leading commercial fitness equipment manufacturers—which accounts for over 75% of global fitness equipment sales to health clubs—you have a pretty good shot at being able to take advantage!
MyFitnessPal has also integrated with Johnson Health Tech, the 3rd-largest fitness equipment manufacturer in the world, and owner of the premier brand, Matrix. You will be able to link your MyFitnessPal account on Matrix’s new 7xi series cardio equipment consoles for automatic syncing within the next few months, so stay tuned for more on that front.
If you’re familiar with either Matrix or NetpulseOne, let us know what you think in the comments below.
Thanks, and we hope these integrations prove useful to you!

We apologize for the confusion, but rest assured: you can easily get them back! Please follow the instructions here: http://www.myfitnesspal.com/topics/show/899338-what-happened-to-my-nutrient-column-sugar-sodium.

Thank you for all the feedback you’ve provided to us on this matter!
UPDATE: March 1, 2013
We wanted to give you a heads up that the sugar and sodium information is now readily available in your food diary on both iPad and the web. You'll just need to update your iPad app to version 1.4.1 to see the new columns in your food diary. We hope these prove useful!
