Alcohol: How to log it in MyFitnessPal
Alcohol: How to Log it in MyFitnessPal is an invaluable 11- page PDF resource designed to support you in accurately tracking your alcohol consumption within the MyFitnessPal platform while providing essential guidance aligned with your nutritional goals.
While MyFitnessPal focuses on the three main macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein, and fats - it overlooks alcohol as a separate macronutrient despite its calorie content. This discrepancy is evident in the entries found in MyFitnessPal or on bottle barcodes, which often provide calorie information without corresponding macronutrient details. Simply logging these entries without accounting for the calories in alcohol can lead to unintentional calorie surpluses, even whilst seemingly hitting your macronutrient targets for the day. Therefore, it becomes crucial to allocate the calories from alcohol appropriately, whether to carbohydrates, fats, or a combination of both.
This resource serves as your comprehensive guide, offering clear instructions on allocating the calories from alcohol to align with your specific goals and macronutrient targets. It simplifies the process by providing straightforward calculations for assigning calories solely to carbohydrates or fats. Additionally, if you prefer to distribute the calories as a mixture of carbohydrates and fats, which can be more complex, rest assured that all calculations have been meticulously performed for you and displayed in tables featuring your favourite drinks, with their calorie content and
standard serving sizes, making it effortless to log them accurately in your MyFitnessPal account.
