Tell us shortly how your company started?

Founder and CEO Mike Lee was getting married, and he and his wife planned beach wedding. They realized they should get in shape, so they hired a trainer. He gave them book and asked them to count calories and write everything on the paper. Mike then realized there was no good product on the market that helps with this, so he went ahead and build MyFitnessPal from his bedroom. Years later, more than 80MM people use MyFitnessPal.
