Eat at the Spark Table

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Logging my nutrition is pretty time consuming, so I find myself trying to knock it out while I'm eating whatever it is I'm logging. It's like sitting down at the table with a robotic nutritionist. As the food enters my mouth, I'm watching visual feedback of how it contributes to my daily health.

Logging food is motivational for two reasons. First, I get immediate feedback about the value of what I'm eating. This helps me choose wisely and to cement in my mind the details I need to remember for food choices for the rest of the day. Logging food is also motivational because it prevents me from overeating. How? It's so damn time-consuming that sometimes I just don't feel like going through the trouble! That makes mindless snacking a lot less enticing.

    I'm doing the same thing. I've become very aware as I eat. My phone is right next to me and I log onto the Sparkpeople app as I eat. And just like you, I can plan my next meal choice accordingly.

    I'm having a lot of fun with this. Thanks for introducing me to this site.
