Community Teams at MyfitnessPal

Sunday, June 13, 2021

I joined Myfitnesspal yesterday just to look around. They have a recipe calculator, although not nearly as good as SP’s, but that’s important to me since I use recipes a lot.

I also scrolled through the list of community groups (the search box doesn’t work well, so I just kept scrolling through pages, and pages, and pages…didn’t make it to the end though) and found over 90 vegetarian/vegan groups. Most were inactive, but I’ve listed the more recently active ones below if anyone is interested. The list has the name, the tag line, the number of members and the day of the most recent post on the group.

There were also a few additional raw and clean eating groups, but their descriptions didn’t mention plant-based/vegetarian/vegan, so I didn’t list them here. There were a few flexitarian and pescatarian groups as well.

I’m happy to report that there were not that nearly as many paleo groups, and I only saw one group that had the word carnivore in the name, and one that was called ‘Meatatarian’.
Of course, I wasn’t really looking for these so I may have passed over a few, but still 90 to 2 emoticon
