Importance of keeping a food journal
So, you may say you followed a "diet"; but it just didn't work. How do you know you were really following it if you didn't log what you were eating? Maybe it didn't work because you only 'thought" you were following it but since you didn't actually log what you were eating...you have no idea how close you followed the guidelines, if at all.
Funny thing about us humans; we think we are eating healthy, believe we watch our portions...but the reality is rarely, if ever what we think it is.
We figure we don't have time to journal what we're eating; no time to measure or weigh our foods. But, we're eating healthy so it doesn't matter. Right?
Unfortunately, that's not right.
You really could be eating perfectly healthy, perfectly "clean" and perfectly too much or even not enough for your size.
Too much food is too much food regardless if it is "healthy" or "unhealthy"; our body treats too many calories as fat storage regardless where the calories come from.
So how much are you really eating?
Are you really getting the right balance of macro nutrients - Water, Carbohydrates, Proteins & Fats?
What about micro nutrients & minerals?
What about serving sizes?
You might be surprised what a serving size is....you may think you are eating a "serving" and be eating 2-3 or more servings and getting anywhere from 3-4x as many calories per day then you think.
How many calories should you be getting?
One way to find out is to provide me your stats and I can provide that information to you.
The deal is, though if you are not tracking what you are eating; you likely could be eating too much or too little (which is just as bad) either way you will gain weight/fat.
I personally love the online food tracker applications because you can track no matter where you are at. You can check your tracker before you eat when you are out to ensure you stay within your dietary needs.
So how are you tracking?
Are you making progress on your goal or sitting in the spin cycle?
