RunKeeper users can now connect their account to a MyFitnessPal account to be able to seamlessly track two very major aspects of the overall health -- exercise and nutrition -- without unnecessary and clunky extra steps. By connecting the two accounts you'll see the calories you've counted in MyFitnessPal displayed in your feed on RunKeeper.com.

Finally, there's the weight information sync across both apps, so any RunKeeper-connected scale you use will shoot that information over to MyFitnessPal.
