I wondered if anyone has used both and your thoughts. I like the app for Lose It better than MFP...it feels more functional and easy to use.
Thoughts???

I've never heard of that one but I'll check it out. I used to be very active on FoodFocus as it's very visual and I love a good weight-loss graph, but I prefer the social aspect on here. And I like that it has plenty of UK food brands logged, that's quite difficult to find.

I used LoseIt for a long time but once I found MFP I never looked back. I feel MFP is more flexible and versatile. For example on LoseIt you are stuck using their portion sizes and fractions... you can't log 2/5 of something.

LoseIt is prettier and easier to use. Their reporting is great: tons of graphs! However, MFP has a MUCH larger database of foods, and you can do more with it. For me, LoseIt was a more pleasant experience, but MFP is a more useful experience, so I use MFP now.

I've noticed LoseIt gives me more calories. It says I can eat 1472 calories and lose 1 and a half pounds per week. Whereas with MyFitnessPal AND counting exercise, I can eat 1472 calories and lose 0.6 pounds per week.

I say screw it. I'm gonna eat 1472 calories cause I'm starting a new job and I can't go around feeling dizzy. 1 and a half pounds per week sounds like good, slow weight loss to me. I'm gonna see how it goes! If it works, I'll still log my food on here, cause the database is bigger. Plus, people post more on the message boards here than on LoseIt.
