January 29, 2016 (updated April 18, 2017):
Happily married for 34 yrs, three grown daughters, two grandsons and one granddaughter.

I'm in the same lane as some of my buddies; I have never fit the BMI charts due to big bones and muscle mass, built like a corner linebacker or sprinter, not a long distance runner.

Although I was (and am), fairly active...I had gained a nice thick layer of fat in my later 40's and early 50's (I'm 57 now). Due to some family history with diabetes, I made a commitment to myself to get off the pre-diabetic rails, found and signed onto Fat Secret in 2015 and have been using the site, logging my intake and calorie expenditures ever since.

I try to eat a balanced diet and am more careful with sugar-carb intake timing and quantity. The information and encouragement I've gained from fellow FS members, logging as best I can what I eat and drink as well as logging my actual exercise and daily calorie expenditures (garmin vivosmart HR) has helped monitor and improve my health and weight. The end result is my endurance, overall fitness, body fat % and BMI are presently as good as my early thirties with several fitness personal bests established in the last year for sustained wattage over set distances.

I have been in maintenance mode since Sept 2016...while maintaining hasn't been a total holiday, I also don't feel like I'm on a "diet", just much more mindful of what my intake is, what my actual calorie expenditures are, and how these numbers affect my health and quality of life. My long term goals are to sustain a healthy weight and lifestyle while optimizing my fitness, endurance and strength (power to weight ratio), as best I can.

I feel very thankful to have found this site; great tools, information and support (awesome buddies!!!)...real people caring and encouraging each other on the fat loss journey, no matter where we are along each of our paths. Good luck and take care!!

Below is the reply from Fat Secret regarding integration of exercise tracker data into the FS app. It looks like a direct link is not going to happen but they suggest portalling the data through The Apple or Google (android) health apps.



Hi Steven Lloyd,

Many thanks for contacting us and sorry for the inconvenience.

We are in the process of adding integration with Google Fit and the Apple Health app as you can read in the following blog post

 http://blog.fatsecret.com/post/166241198051/a-new-home

We wont be adding any new exercise trackers at the moment but if you are able to share your data with one of the apps listed above, these apps can then share the data with FatSecret.

We appreciate your patience and wish you well.

The FatSecret team

FYI, I just forwarded this thread onto the FS folks, when I hear anything I'll post it here.

They are working on it, but it sounded not real simple...I had asked the FS tech guys a few months ago as my Garmin Vivosmart HR+ can directly link my exercise and calorie burn with the "My Fitness Pal" website, they were going to check into it but were not sure about how close the Garmin / MFP (a competitor of FS) affiliation was...I havent heard any news back yet.

I did try logging my intake onto MFP for a couple of weeks, but preferred FS input tools...so now I just manually match up my FS activity & calories with the Garmin and keep logging both intake and output with FS.

Maybe soon they'll get it, but it would be good to check again.

Does this work?
Heather and Joanne, hello & welcome!! I also came here to lose weight using the free calorie counter app (late July 2015) and have ended up staying due to both the insights I've gained through interaction with the community and the genuine support from all.

Hope you both find the site works for you as well as it worked for me...good luck and take care!!
