I really struggled with insecurities about my body, but working out and watching what I ate made me not only look good, but feel good and strong too!" —oliva526"A coworker introduced me to MyFitnessPal. I thought I was eating healthy before, but the app has really opened my eyes to how terrible seemingly-healthy foods can be. I love that I can upload recipes and scan barcodes to log foods.
