- Eating more protein helps me feel fuller longer. When I eat 70 grams or more of protein I am less likely to feel hungry throughout the day. - Mistakes and slip-ups are not the end of the world. I tend to take an "all or nothing" approach in life. So if I succumbed to temptation and something that wasn't in my meal plan, I'd give up for that day and just eat anything. Tracking has taught me that it more about balance. A single slip-up won't completely derail my hard work, if I don't let it.

I learned that my quick meals for lunch time needed to be revamped because I was eating as many calories as I was at dinner and then I'd go way over my calorie count...and that if I was eating dinner before going to the gym to eat lighter because I always need a small something extra after I finish at the gym.
i learned that i was really really really bad an guessing portion sizes and guessing how many calories i was eating. I also learned that the panera pumpkin muffin has 590 calories. way more calories in that muffin than i guessed.

As soon as I started tracking my nutrition, I learned that I was not getting enough protein, fiber, or iron. This was a great lesson to learn. I have been able to monitor my nutrition during the day so I can plan the right combination of foods to meet my total nutrition needs. When I eat a balanced set of meals for the day, I feel amazing!!!
