Track your diet & exercise with this app – it’s amazingly helpful!
I have known about this app for a while but didn’t really understand what it was about or how it could be so helpful. I was recently re-introduced to it by a nutritionist and Miss Fitness Body Builder called Carla Chacksfield. Having seen her competition photo’s and listened to what she had to say about diet and exercise, it’s clear we are on the same page. Carla told me to download this App so I can track my daily food intake in order to make sure I am eating right for my goals. The day after my first day of tracking I went from 9 stone 1.2 to 9 stone 0.4…not bad!
I actually ate under 2000 calories on the first day, I didn’t feel at all hungry and we also went out for dinner…plus I had 2 small glasses of wine. Tracking food and water intake made me a lot more conscious of my consumption.
A common problem is that people actually don’t eat enough. If you enter into this cycle initially you will lose weight. However, over time it is not sustainable. You will feel tired, hungry and irritable and in extreme cases cause metabolic damage. Anyway, that’s a complicated subject, with many factors to take into account and something I feel is for another post.
I shall be adding a post soon about how to determine your calorie and Macro intake for each day (Macro’s are your Protein, Carbohydrate and Fat intake). This will be for someone who is wanting to burn body fat whilst working out – after all, the two go hand in hand!Share This:
