Hey For a very long time I religiously tracked all my calories using spark. I never could get into the WW points thing it seemed too complicate for me lol. I'm a bottom line keep it simple kind of girl. As I've gotten close to my GW recently I've transittioned away from tracking because I want to try and make this about living healthy and practicing maintenance mode with out it being an obsession (problematic for me in the past). So I'm working on my moderation and portions and clean eating with out the tracking and its working well for me. I also think it helped too that I tracked for almost 4 years and now its like I can calculate that stuff in my sleep. It comes more second nature now. I really recommend tracking consistently for a while until you find your groove :) I think you look great now by the way! 1592 days ago
Kudos to you for joining us here on the Raw Foodies Team. This will be one of the best decisions you have ever made. Sparkers come here and join this great team for a multitude of reasons. They may be curious about the health benefits of Raw Food and join to learn all about eating Raw. Many join for the weight loss. Many join the Team for a Detox. There are a great many people who do the Raw Food Diet as a Detox but then they realize how alive they feel and how the pounds melted away so effortlessly they decide to continue to eat this way. There are others who will join this Team for the health benefits of a Raw Food Diet. A diet based on raw food can reverse diabetes, arthritis (I personally have experienced this. I went off all of my arthritis meds after only a few weeks), heart disease, cancer (that is how I became involved with the Raw Food Diet when my sister was diagnosed with Lymphoma), eliminates migraines, the list goes on and on.
So join us and learn how to make the transition from SAD (Standard American Diet) to a healthy Raw Food Diet. You will be happy you did!
