I'm a writer and researcher, so I'm glued to my computer and track everything - the good, the bad and the ugly

www.writeforyouinc.com

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action. Since there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.

My favorite tracking app at the moment is MyNetDiary Android app. I think it cost $4 or $5 but it has saved me a lot of time The basic version has no monthly fee. I'm a fairly obsessive tracker and this database contains almost all the foods I have searched for, including a lot of strange stuff. The barcode database is very good, and if you can't find a food, you simply snap photos of the front and the nutrition label. The staff will input it for you, usually within 24 hours! The way you input quanitites is very efficient and you can edit a quantity if you eat more later. I use the voice feature on my phone with it, too.

Yes, tracking is a pain, but when other methods are not working, it's the way to go. You get faster as you do it more, too.

Yay for you!!! I got the idea of myfitnesspal off of an old f2f episode where Russ talked about using it. You could email him or post to the Facebook page and I'm sure he'll send you the link. I've been listening to f2f since they started several years ago. Lots of really good episodes in the archives.

Myfttnesspal how did you pick it and why is it better than this site? I dumped the SP meal plans the first day and just use the drop down menus here. I like it but it is a pain.
I figure I will do it for a year anyway, and eventually I will get it down. It has worked for me so far this year. I am unobese today for the first time in a decade.

Get good at lifelong learning.

I've been using myfitnesspal ap to track my calories for about a month. I really like it and find it easy to use. I used to track just in a notebook with a calorie counting book and found it to be very cumbersome. I don't follow the calorie total it recommends, I follow the fat 2 fit BMR calculator. I thought I could lose weight by just eating whole, non-processed foods, but I didn't start losing until I diligently started counting calories. I also measure my food still, but think over time I will learn proper portion sizes.

Good luck! I'll be curious to hear what everyone else's advice is.

I was out of contact with my computer and didn't track quite as well as I have been doing. I didn't have a big regression but I was not as on target nutritionally.

How consistent and detailed are you in tracking especially if you have been at it for a while?
How long have you been doing it?
How much time do you spend doing it daily?
Is the app on the smart phone worth it ? Does it make it easier?

Get good at lifelong learning.
