MyFitnessPal Trends: Labor Day Eats

It’s Labor Day here in the U.S., a holiday marking the unofficial end-of-summer, the pinnacle of backyard barbecues. Do Americans eat differently on Labor Day? We asked our data gurus to look at some of the trends surrounding foods logged by our U.S. members on this holiday last year:

It turns out, here in the U.S. we drank less coffee, ate more burgers and a whole lot more hot dogs on Labor Day. It seems we need less caffeine to get going on holidays involving lots of backyard barbecuing!

    I too love the trending food idea. It would be great to see if there is say a trend quarterly or such. I am especially interested in Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    I think this is a fun thing to do for all the major holidays! Intake of candy on Halloween, cookies at Christmas, that kind of deal. Just interesting to see. And really, having a cookie (or two) or enjoying a big ol’ burger now and then won’t hurt anything. I don’t want to be the drone and say “moderation is key” but it really is!

    That’s not hard to believe! It’s a holiday that promotes outdoor grilling…I personally do not prefer to drink coffee with hamburgers and hot dogs. I historically quaff cold sweet tea, pop, water, or beer. The thought of my ketchup, mayo, mustard and cheese, plus all the fixin’s, being washed down with a hot mug of coffee, just does not sound tempting or the least bit appetizing at all to me…but to each his own!

    i am here to give testimony of how i got back my husband, we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do,i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr papa for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 1 week my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still live me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that he Dr papa casted on him that make him comeback to me today,me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Papa for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.
