The year-long study with over 37,000 users has shown that people lose 7 times more weight by combining food logging and weight tracking activities.
The paid-for offering involves ad-free experience, VIP customer support, access to dietitian-approved recipes, meal plans and nutrition tips.
The company has effectively established the world's largest digital health and fitness community, counting more than 120 million global users.
MyFitnessPal has over 4 million foods in the database, making it easy to add just about anything you eat, and merge that information with Shine fitness data.
The idea behind the deal is to combine MyFitnessPal's market footprint with Sessions' insights into behavior change coaching.
User's workouts recorded within MapMyFitness will automatically sync to MyFitnessPal; this includes activity type, time, average pace and total calories burned.
Users will be able to seamlessly track two very major aspects of the overall health, exercise and nutrition, without unnecessary and clunky extra steps.
