One of the first things you need to do when you start food tracking is find a method that works for you. Are you going to manually record your food in a notebook? Journal? or a convenient app on your phone? I chose the later, and have been using My Fitness Pal, tracking my daily intake of food for the past 957 days and counting.
Here is why I love using My Fitness Pal:
You can scan or input foods fast for macro tracking
It's on my phone and my phone goes everywhere with me
It syncing to my STRNGirls App that tracks my progress for me
I can share my food with my Food Coach via the app
WARNING: I love the app for tracking BUT I don’t love the suggested macros it gives you when you first input your goals. These numbers are not a great starting point, especially if you have a goal to lose weight.
Let me teach you more about that PLUS how to successfully use and navigate the app and some pro tips in my new free training video! I recorded it with beginners in mind who want to start on a food tracking journey to learn more about what foods fuel them toward their goals.
If you want to watch it, it is about 5 minutes long. I talk fast and get right to the point, so have a pen and paper ready! okay, let's do this! WATCH THE PRO-TIPS VIDEO HERE Questions about Food Coaching? Send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
