MFP vs Cronometer

hello, i am an bodybuilder and .i am confused between these two
Are you guys using MFP or Cronometer to count your calories and macros?
I know Cronometer has a huge database of natural foods and it is more accurate on micronutrient values, but is it good for processed foods?

    Hi @jaisonsingh

    Professionally speaking, I find the information unreliable in MFP given how many entries for the same food there are. Additionally, it's difficult to assess the nutrient quality of an individual's diet, since few nutrients are included in the database.

    Given that you are a body builder, I do think seeing your amino acid profile, macros, and nutrient intake would be beneficial to achieving your fitness goals.

    If you have any questions about how Cronometer works, be sure to click on the "Help" tab to peruse the library of resources. You can also post any questions in the forum for the team to answer. :)
