Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 29, 2013
Gruve Technologies, Inc., makers of The Gruve®, announce the availability of Gruve data on MyFitnessPal.com starting May 15, 2013. This new connectivity will allow users to share their Gruve data on the MyFitnessPal website.
MyFitnessPal.com is a popular, free daily calorie intake tracking website with over 30 million users. It has the world’s largest food nutrition and calorie database (over 1 million foods) and free mobile apps for iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and Windows. According to many studies, keeping a food journal and recording everything you eat and drink creates a sense of personal accountability, increases awareness of extra calories, and improves weight loss and maintenance.
This new level of connectivity will help users get a more accurate view of the number of calories they are consuming along with their daily calorie burn captured by their Gruve device. Gruve users who might not have a MyFitnessPal.com account can sign up easily for a free account using the new MyFitnessPal.com widget or by going directly to MyFitnessPal.com. Gruve users will be able to see both daily calorie expenditure and consumption using either site. This new functionality for both sites will help users stay accountable and aware of what they are eating and better track if they are staying within the personalized daily calorie intake recommended in their Gruve plan.
“We know it can be hard for people to accurately track the food they are eating and the amount of activity they do every day. We've worked hard to get tha connectivity in place to allow Gruve users to see both on MyFitnessPal.com and Gruve.com,” says Dr. Robert Gauthier, CEO, Gruve Technologies, Inc. “We are continuing to create partnerships that provide resources to help our users create healthy habits and stay on track to meet their health goals and that’s great for everyone.”
The Gruve is centered on the concept of non-exercise activity thermogenesis, known as N.E.A.T. for short, and is all the calories one burns while doing normal daily activity. Research found that increasing the N.E.A.T in daily life can result in sustainable weight loss and a dramatic improvement in overall health.
The Gruve solution provides a personalized plan for the user that is calibrated to the user's specific metabolism and habits. The device has three forms of feedback to keep the user on track—color changing calorie burn status lights, vibration to remind the user to move, and interactive website visuals. These physical cues help the users to modify their behavior over time and provide a sustainable path to successful weight reduction, maintenance and improved health.
