  • Food coma and eating amnesia. They really do exist. Tracking really helps. - 8/27/2015 1:30:55 PM
  • Great and very simple tip. I quite agree with this advice. When we see the reality of what we consume in print, it can be sure to make us less hungry as we realise that we have actually eaten enough. Often, drinking instead of eating will rid us of 'hunger pangs' and help us to stay hydrated as well as losing the desired amount of weight through controlling our diets more effectively. - 8/27/2015 4:57:27 AM
  • Thanks for this quick tip, Nicole. Certainly the truth can be more revealing than thinking we know what we're doing. - 7/29/2015 9:31:05 AM
  • I find it really helpful to see how many carbs, fats, proteins and certain vitamins I have.. it lets me know... too low on this or that or too high on something else and I can adjust for the next day as I don't have it down yet automatically... - 7/26/2015 11:56:35 PM
  • During my 78 years on this earth, I have tried almost all of the fad diets only to loss weight and then regain it all within a year or two. After being introduced to SparkPeople where I have access to much information, exercise tips and videos, and easy tracking of food and exercise, I have lost weight and I am now in my third year of maintenance. Careful tracking every day, mindful eating, and exercise six days a week have been the answer for me. - 7/24/2015 2:28:14 PM
  • I use my lap top to track my food. Have a Thankful & Blessed Day! - 7/16/2015 9:46:19 AM
  • thank you so much Nicole for a great tip going to start tracking my food. cause I have like 15 or 10 lbs to go on my weight Loss Journey. - 6/17/2015 11:27:11 AM
  • I've lost 70 pounds and my most important tool is logging my food. You must log everything, including that little catsup packet! Everything counts. - 5/28/2015 6:39:59 PM
  • I use my mobile app probably more than my desktop. I love the ability to scan the barcodes of things I eat and having it right at my finger tips. - 3/28/2015 5:34:20 PM
  • I actually like tracking, as it allows me to plan my meals for not only today but for the week as well. Like other comments, tracking showed me what important nutrients were missing from my daily diet. I also started 2 months ago the "Green Smoothie" a day challenge and just went to the doctors last week. My blood work came back with awesome results; I am no longer on any cholesterol medicine and my blood pressure was also really good.
    Thanks to Sparks People and the daily tracker, I have learned to eat healthier and am already reaping the health benefits. - 2/23/2015 11:17:41 AM
  • Tracking showed me where to make adjustments in what I was eating - not enough protein and calcium. I also have to start early in the day to get all the calcium I need. Watching what I eat is the key to losing weight no matter if I exercise at the same level. Don't get me wrong, exercise has really made a difference but I have to work both sides of the equation by honestly tracking what goes in against what gets burned up. - 2/15/2015 11:40:21 AM
  • Tracking my food is the part of my healthy journey that I loath the most, but I still do it, because I've realized how much I can overeat without tracking. - 1/28/2015 6:54:56 PM
  • Tracking EVERYTHING that goes into my mouth has been invaluable to me. I have learned so much about my eating style and triggers. - 1/9/2015 10:40:16 AM
  • I did not realize how much I was eating and the wrong things till I started with the spark on line tracking. It is teaching me how to eat correctly for first time in my life. - 1/1/2015 9:54:48 AM
  • I plan to start tracking today. Will try using the Spark tracker. - 12/27/2014 7:35:02 PM
