Keep a food journal
How else can you keep track of the amounts of foods that you are eating if you’re not even paying attention?
MyFitnessPal.com is a fantastic resource for maintaining a food journal. On this website you can keep track of everything that you eat and it breaks down your daily totals of calories, proteins, fats and carbohydrates. You can search through a tremendous database of foods and simply click on them to populate your totals. You’ll find that most everything you eat is already in the database but you also will be able to enter in information from food labels in the event that your food is not listed.
Another great thing about this website is that it keeps track of your most recent entries so that you do not have to search for them or enter in the information again. You can even keep track of entire meals so that you don’t have to continually enter individual items.
Once you get the hang of it, you can plan your daily meals and hit your proportion goals in a matter of minutes. This makes it really easy to plan your meals for the day and keeping a plan or a roadmap is essential for reaching your health and fitness destination!
