Using the nutrition tracker is very important to me. I even have the app on my phone. The part of this activity that has helped the most is I don't mindlessly eat anymore. Food is now fuel for my body. I pay close attention to what foods I eat and what my food is made of. I plan ALL my meals. It may sound hard, but its not. I now eat to live rather than eat because I can. The amazing thing about this change is that I enjoy and have more appreciation for my meals now.
If you know what's in your food, you can better manage things like your sodium and cholesterol intake.

I do a "reality check" by observing other people in public places and asking myself who I would trade bodies with? It gives me a better sense of self esteem and a greater appreciation of myself. I'm sabotaging myself when I hold myself accountable for not being perfect.
