I already have that on my phone! I might start a new account and check it out properly. Right now I've used it to plug in my foods for some days out of curiosity, to see what foods I was gravitating towards, when I couldn't remember off the top of my head. I didn't know it had a barcode scanner, that sounds very handy

I'm impressed with your progress! I can see why actually using MFP properly would have so many benefits I haven't yet taken advantage of.

To be honest, I think IE is definitely my base plan, my default. However, it does take a lot of mental gymnastics, and ultimately my goal is to lose weight and keep it off, so I'm more than happy to dip into other plans when I want to keep a closer eye on what I'm doing, break through a plateau etc. I'm glad I DID log some stuff in MFP when IE was going smoothly, as now I have a baseline for how I eat "naturally" as in, without thinking about it (it usually came up in the 12-1400 cal range which is a good sign).

Can I find you on MFP if that's ok? I think I'm going to use it whatever plan I end up on, and for however long
2.5 years later... found the way to combine IE with calorie counting!
