How To Track What You Eat To Lose Weight More Effectively
Using My Fitness Pal
Have you ever tried to lose weight and found that counting calories was really annoying?
Well, it can be, especially at first.
But essentially, counting calories requires learning to be calorie literate.
Many people have low 'calorie literacy' - so by taking the time to track your foods on My Fitness Pal, you can quickly become calorie literate and know how to make better food choices - ultimately helping YOU manage your weight more effectively.
Let an expert show you how to properly use the NUMBER ONE TIP that people who have lost weight and kept it off say they do...
...food journal and write down everything they eat and drink!
Tracking what you eat helps you get results fast!
Tracking what you eat works faster than just winging it, or trying "to eat better".
But often times, people struggle with what method to use. They try a notebook. But it's cumbersome and forgotten. They try food photos - but miss out on important details, like portions, sauces, and sides.
I've counselled a TON of people in your shoes, and resoundingly, My Fitness Pal has been the BEST tool. Your smart phone is small, convenient, and always with you - which is what makes this method the most maintainable.
Food journalling, especially on an app like My Fitness Pal will give you EVERY DAY, and EVERY MEAL accountability. When you know you have to track it, you become more mindful with each and every bite.
Tracking what you eat brings awareness to where you may be missing the 'nutritional mark'.
- Do you remember if you had 1, or 2 cups of vegetables at lunch and supper two days ago?
- Are you able to analyze if you got enough protein or fibre at your last meal?
- Did you eat too much, or too little, effectively sabotaging your weight loss efforts?
- Can you identify bad nutrition habits you have around meal timing, or spacing?
If you can't answer these questions easily - then this course is for you! Using My Fitness Pal can do all of that - in real time.
Immediate feedback means better results.
You can be your own expert in analyzing your food log with the key target areas that I focus on in this course.
Let me show you how to use the app effectively and efficiently - with simple-to-do steps like setting up the nutrition goals to meet YOUR needs - so that you're not starving, but you're still able to lose weight.
