You made me think of a few things while I read ; you match a lot of how I think. Report
Everything in range yesterday and today. Using Spark nutrition tracker. Report
I don't like tracking but it works, so I will continue to do it. Report
good points Report
When I track, I am successful......................when I don't........................! Report
I've tried tracking. It doesn't work for me. It makes me focus on food, which makes me hungry and irritable and thinking too much on what I want to eat. When I focus on food, I eat too much. Report
As someone said, tracking rules. Sometimes you have to do some research to be sure of the calories, proteins, carbs, etc. if you can't find it on SparkPeople. By being honest on the tracker you can see exactly how you are doing, whether you are eating healthy or not. Report
I have been planning and tracking for many years. It not only keeps me on track, but saves me time, money and grief. Report
Main thing is to stay honest. You are not fooling anyone except yourself if you don't mark down everything. Report
It definitely forces you to see things in black and white and act on what you see! Report
I can say from experience that this is very true. If you don't see it in print you will easily slip into rationalization that you didn't really eat that much. Entering everything you eat is extremely difficult and time consuming even though the Sparkpeople Nutrition Tracker is one of the best I have ever seen. There are many days I just can't get to it. The good news is the more you do it the easier it gets because your personal data gets larger and your knowledge of how and where to find the food you looking for expands, so it takes less time as time goes by. Report
Though I hate tracking, I recognize it's the most valuable tool in weight loss and maintenance. Report
Great article! Report
Fantastic article! Report
I swear by food tracking and even now 4 1/2 years into maintenance I still track my food. Second nature now and it works! Report
