I no longer use the nutrition tracker because I tend to eat way more then normal because I can't get food off my mind. I am trying to just eat when I am hungry and stop when I feel I am satisfied. When I was tracking I would see that I went over calories by 5 pm so I would pig out on junk after that because I had already ate to much but never felt full. The cravings get really strong by 6 pm so I would just pig out and did not care that I was tracking 500 calories more than needed for my body.
I still eat more calories but don't have as bad of cravings. I am also trying to not give in to all the cravings or eat something healthy when possible. The nutrition tracker was not helping me to cut back on calories or change the types of food I was eating. I tend to eat more junk the more I track instead of the good foods. My blood sugar is better controlled now that I stopped using the tracker because I am not eating as much candy and chips as I was when I was tracking. While I was tracking I was eating twice the amount of candy and chips.
When I track food My mind seems to think I need the restaurant foods and candy and chips more since I have to get 1200 calories per day and veggies won't give me that. Once I stop tracking I stop trying to eat so much junk.
I have "The Spark", "SparkPeople Cookbook" and "Spark Solutions"
I set my ticker to my highest weight of 210 lbs because it gets upset and doesn't want to save when I gain weight instead of lose.
on Dec 30, 2012 I joined SparkPeople and weighed 195.8
