Train Smart, Track Your Nutrition with MyFitnessPal
As athletes, it’s hard to deny that the fuel we put into our body has a direct correlation to the way we perform. What we eat and drink every day impacts training, recovery and output.
Strava Pro Laurens Ten Dam said it best:
You don’t throw diesel in a Formula One race car. If you’re at a big buffet, you cannot eat all the shit, because you have to race!
In an effort to help you train smarter and track your nutrition, we’ve made it easy to sync your Strava account with MyFitnessPal.
MyFitnessPal allows you to input the food you consume, as well as any activity you do, on a daily basis. Now, when you connect your accounts, your run or ride data, including time, distance and calories, will be sent to your MyFitnessPal Exercise Diary. There, you’ll have more visibility into how many calories you need to consume for each day or week, based on your upcoming workout or race schedule.
Get started: Go to Settings on Strava.com or your mobile device. Select ‘Link Other Services’ and connect to MyFitnessPal.
