MyFitnessPal and Healthie
MyFitnessPal information can be combined with your utilization of Healthie in two ways:
- A Client can sync their Fitbit with their MyFitnessPal account, and then sync their FitBit account with Healthie. Even if clients don't have an actual Fitbit, they can set up a free Fitbit account, and pull in information from MFP to Healthie.
- Use MyFitnessPal in conjunction with Healthie in your practice, as a supplemental tool in working with clients, particularly with tracking nutrients. While MyFitnessPal data does not get added directly into your clients' Healthie account this way (without a Fitbit) clients can give you as their provider, direct access to their MFP accounts, and you can review these in session.
Use Healthie's Nutrient Database as an alternative to MyFitnessPal
You can also choose to use Healthie's Nutrient Database feature to allow clients to track micro/macronutrients within Healthie. The benefit of this, is that there is no separate app required for your clients to log macro / micro nutrients for your review.
Information pulled from MyFitnessPal into Healthie
Information pulled from MyFitnessPal into Healthie (via FitBit) will show up in the Journal and Metrics sections of the platform. Information pulled can include:
- Heart Rate
- Nutrition information (macronutrient breakdowns)
At this time, photos taken in MFP cannot carry over into Healthie's photo-based food journal. Moreover, we have reached out to the MFP team, and are awaiting a response from their team, to see if it is possible to increase our integration with MFP, and will update this post if / when a deeper integration becomes available.
