Fitbit vs MyFitnessPal

I've recently discovered that it's not a good idea to link your Fitbit to MyFitnessPal as it throws out all the Fitbit data. I first noticed this when my Very Active Minutes weren't accurate and was even sent a new one before they told me that it was because they were showing up on MFP (which I hardly use any more as I'm at my goal weight). I've just gone through my Activities on Fitbit deleting all the MFP figures and at last I have a total mileage for the year since I've had my Fitbit, 2,890 miles, where it didn't show any before because they were all showing as from MFP.

  • I prefer noom...have you tried it?

  • No, I'd never heard of it and I don't need anything else now. I lost three stone (42 pounds/20 kilos) on the 5:2 Diet so I now just maintain by fasting one day a week (up to 500 calories) and running 5k three times a week.

    I've just looked at Noom and I really can't see the point of it. I love my Fitbit and wear it 24/7 - I'm hardly likely to wear my phone, am I?!!!
