Part 2 | MyFitnessPal Setup for Keto Macros

 In Keto Tools, Information, Recommendations

In Part 1 We go through adding the fiber column to your diary summary & tracking your macronutrients by grams.
We continue our MFP guides for those looking to get even more out of MyFitnessPal without paying the Premium Subscription.
Below are some valuable tips and tricks to configuring the MyFitnessPal (MFP) to work for the ketogenic diet without signing up for Premium. A computer will be required for what I will explain next but even if you don’t have a computer, we will walkthrough adding some extensions to the Google Chrome Browser to allow you to see a calculated “Net Carb” total within your Carb Column and it also edits the summary of the Food Diary’s pie chart to reflect the Net Carb information within the Google Chrome Browser. The final extension will allow you to export any of your data from MFP, also a Premium feature.

Before we get started you will need:

1. On your phone, download the MyFitnessPal App from the App Store
2. On your computer, download the Google Chrome Browser
