Setting up Fitness Pal
MY FITNESS PAL SET UP INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Link to my account- My username is GETUGREAT. After you create your account, you have to send me a friend request. You can do this by following these steps:
Settings > Friends> click the +> Select @email or MyFitnessPal Username > search GETUGREAT
2. Caloric Allowance - The program will assign you a generic caloric allowance. THIS IS NOT what you are to follow as the app is not associated with my program or meals. Be sure you have completed checkpoint #2 to receive your caloric limit for the day.
*LEAVE THE MACROS AS WE WILL NOT BE USING THEM DURING THE FIRST TIER. See detailed guide for explanation.
3. Privacy Settings - In order for me to see your entries, the following steps must be taken. You can do this by following these steps:
Settings > Diary Dettings>Diary Sharing > Friends. Then click the ✔️.
4. Change Meal Names. In order for me to see your meals and snacks as you eat them you will need to rename your meals. I prefer that you create 6 meals for your log even if you are not eating six times. This will be explained later. Follow these steps to change your meal names:
Settings > Diary Settings > Customize Meal Names > Change to:
Meal 1 : Breakfast
Meal 2: MiniMeal 1
Meal 3: Lunch
Meal 4: MiniMeal 2
Meal 5: Dinner
Meal 6: MiniMeal 3
5.. Profile- Please add a picture of yourself on the MFP profile page. This helps me identify who is who when I go through the logs! This can be done by following these steps:
Settings> Profile>Profile Picture
DOWNLOAD THE MY FITNESS PAL APP found in the app store.
Please watch the video on setting up My Fitness Pal. Once you create your account you will be given a temporary caloric limit. This is the number that should be sent to me for approval.
CHECKPOINT #1 : PLEASE TEXT ME WHAT YOUR ASSIGNED LIMIT IS FOR APPROVAL.
The start up process is very overwhelming! It is for me as I am welcoming many new members to the program each session and it is important that for me to get to know you!
CHECKPOINT #2: Please text me a picture of yourself that will be used as a your contact profile photo which will help me put a face to your name and say you have reached the 2nd checkpoint!
OPTIONAL CHECKPOINT: Feel free to send me a friend request on my personal Facebook Page was well: Irene Gallos Kok.
I promise the overwhelming On-Boarding process will subside as you get settled into the program! Remember, you can text me your list of questions any time so don’t ever hesitate to send them or ask for help! I’m your lifeline now!
