Why MyFitnessPal Barcodes Are Important & Why They Matter To Your Followers

If you love creating recipes, you already know the benefit of nutritious home-cooked meals.

However, anyone who is managing their weight can come across many stumbling blocks. All commercially available, processed foods come with barcodes. Your customers can use these barcodes to track their food intake in MyFitnessPal in 5 seconds flat.

What if they want to make a recipe from scratch though?

They need to go through, search for and add each ingredient one at a time. Then adjust the quantity as per your recipe. Now they must check to make sure all the macros and nutrients are entered. Then they must go and do the same for the next ingredient. And so on.

Can you see why processed store-bought food might be easier for them? We want to change their mind.

Provide More Value for your Customers and Clients

Step up your recipe creation game. Make things easy for your clients to track and log their food intake. Give them a reason to keep coming back to your recipes and your brand. Stand out from the crowd.

How many recipes are out there on the internet? Thousands? Millions? Billions?

How many come with tools to track calories, macronutrients and nutrient intake?

ALL of yours.

Look Professional: these days, clients can get recipes from everywhere and anywhere. Make yours stand out and set yourself apart from the competition.
