In terms of macronutrients, I do track sodium (UBER important), potassium, fiber and iron (because my blood work says I'm low).

I don't stress over hitting my range everyday, but I like to have record of how I am doing. I really strive for in range of sodium daily (0-2300) but I don't beat my self up over it.

Low-carb is something that can be played. I make sure that I eat HEALTHY first, and naturally (for me) I eat low-carb that way. The biggest thing for me is, like I said, listening to my body and seeing how it reacts when I eat certain things. I love my turkey burgers in lettuce wraps now.

There is a survey from Jillian Michaels that I took (my girlfriend was reading one of her books) and it asks about how certain things like sweets or fatty foods make you feel and it helps you find out what foods are best for you due to the way you absorb fats. Really interesting stuff. I should see if I can find it for you!

Erica,

5 or 5:30 makes me cringe as well haha. That commute must be a killer :( I really lucked out and it only takes me about 5 minutes to get to work.

Stay strong!
Nicole

I have been soda-free for a year. Let me tell you, it tastes DISGUSTING now! I just kept reading how bad diet coke is and finally made that decision to kick it to the curb.

I also eat Greek yogurt. I like that it tastes more like fruit than dairy (most times). Regular yogurt always had a bad aftertaste for me so it was a natural switch.

I am also (trying) to go more organic but it's hard with costs. I am really low-carb because my body just handles it better naturally. I love eating my turkey burgers in lettuce wraps... I don't miss the bun that way and I save a ton of calories.

I noticed when I eat a lot of grains (especially white breads, white rice, white potatoes) I would feel really sluggish and bloated. Now that I avoid them (the only bread I eat is Ezekiel 4:19 Sprouted Bread) I FEEL healthier. Does that make any sense?

Overall, I really try to listen to my body and how it reacts to what I eat. It is REALLY hard, let me tell you... especially out to dinner! I am making it work - slowly but surely!

I haven't made it to workouts in the morning yet. TMI but Not the right time of the month to try it (if you know what I mean). But I did have the day off today and I worked out before lunch and I am feeling great.

What are you doing with nutrition to help with weight loss?
