I have a more real view or portions.
I recognize how healthy lots of veggies and fruit are daily.
Before I was not getting enough protein. Now I am more aware.

I have learned not to be afraid of eating fatty or protein-rich foods! Days where I come under the minimum for fat are almost always the days where I dive face-first into the fridge by the end of the day.

I am learning which nutrients I am short on and which I am doing well. This is helping me to add more nutrient rich snacks into my day. And the tracking utility is very easy to use.

The way we track food on this site makes it so easy and really makes me more mindful.

I learned I eat a high protein and sodium diet, and am always significntly under carbs each day. My intake of vitamin d, calcium is also low. Sometimes I don;t track the late night snacks because I don't want to face it, even if they are healthy. Just wish I could get through an evening without eating after supper.

Same here. The amount I would eat before was crazy I wouldn't be surprised if I ate 1000 + cal at one meal. When I track it makes me see how much I should be eating. Also I eat more whole foods like veggies because they are so low in calories. And I think hard about the snacks I want to eat and portion everything and read every label. Making smarter choices.

That's right..... Why bother fooling myself if I don't tack honestly!

I've learned that, unless I'm honest, there's no point.

That is a very common issue as to why people get overweight! We have no clue as to what we are shoving into our mouths and in what quantity. Knowledge is power.

I have learned that without the tracking, I don't often realize just how much one can eat and how many calories I am adding to my intake each day. Hence, I am overweight
