Too many ppl think tracking your intake for a little bit of time to get your bearings is “obsessive”, when in reality spending 15+ years trying diet after diet is what’s obsessive.
📈Tracking is solely to give us data.
💡I used to do the left side all the time & got frustrated I wasn’t seeing results until I learned how to track my intake.
This is why just simply tracking what you’re CURRENTLY doing is sooo beneficial to starting to see results.
📍Think of it like using GPS to reach a destination rather than driving blindfolded trying to reach it.
🙅🏼♀️This also helps prevent people from slashing calories like crazy!
Instead of saying “I need to eat 1200 calories per day to lose weight”,
-if you’re currently eating over 2500 for example then you only need to drop down maybe 350 to start seeing results-NOT 1200!
Most people (absolutely not all) tend to underestimate the calories they’re taking in-especially when it comes to things like:
❎and “extras” on our meals.
If you’re struggling with where to START, this is what I suggest:
🔥Do NOT enter in a goal weight/set anything up. If you do it will give you set calories to hit & their recommendations are always bullshit/way too low.
🔥Simply just start entering in what you had that day immediately after you had it (if you wait until the end of the day you’ll completely forget-trust me on this, don’t do that).
(Or you could hire a coach 😉 to help you get started)
👌🏻Do this every single day for an entire week (WEEKENDS INCLUDED) and take the average of your calories and fats/carbs/proteins and see where you are.
