    I'm currently trying a site called myfitnesspal.com which I think is cool if you're trying to lose weight. I chose to try it because there's a mobile app for it I can download for my Android phone. So in trying it for a few days, I think that it's pretty good but it's mostly for someone who wants to lose weight. It's not really dedicated people trying convert fat into muscle.

    I'm 5' 7" with 32 inch waist and weight 150lbs. My goal is to get back to 30 inch waist but stay at 150lbs. Essentially I wouldn't be losing any weight. I just want to shed the excess fat I have and finally get a flat stomach. I don't even care to have a six pack or not. That's not a big deal to me. I just want it flat.

    I've learned that I can't do this on my own. I need to have a tool like this website to help me. myfitnesspal.com actually gives stats and stuff and really keeps you on track about how many calories taken in and burned.

    I'm wondering if there's a site like this but for bodybuilders. I'm not a bodybuilding but I need a site that understands the difference between body fat vs muscle. Hopefully a site like that will help me understand how to gain muscle and lose fat. Thanks for any feedback!

    I've been using myfitnesspal for about a month as well and have to say that for the most part, it's very effective. It has a killer database and syncs with iphone and android.

    I agree with you that it could use improvements for those seeking to do more than "lose weight". If they would allow user input for daily calorie and protein goals instead of the arbitrary limits based on composition and age I would be ecstatic! Currently when I go over 100 grams protein for the day I'm "in the red" not to mention the nagging it starts when I eat over 2600 calories. Oh noes... but hey, it's free so I'm in.

    Yea I agree. Those are my gripes about the app as well. It's still pretty effective though. Hopefully they'll make improvements so that it can help people get ripped and not just lose weight.
