Log Your Calories Using The Spark Nutrition Tracker
Members Were Sparked
I implore everyone to keep track of all their meals during the day. Not only does it help to see where you are in terms of calories, but you can also monitor your fat, carb, and protein consumption.
Keeping track of your calories using this diary approach will help you identify weaknesses as well as motivate you to eat healthier! Sometimes I'll enter my day's choices in the morning so I know ahead of time how much I'm eating and will not be tempted to skew if I've reach my daily limits.

each time you track a food make sure you clikc the my favorites key, overtime you will find foods that you normally eat. Then when you track the food for the day use the myfavorites, it is much faster than looking each food up each day.
Overtime you will have most of the foods entered into your favorites and it is much faster in using the nutrition tracker.
I try to eat only things that are pretty easily quantifiable. If I can't log it into my Nutrition Tracker or determine the nutrition value, I don't eat it. Of course, this doesn't always work, but if I make it my general rule, it simplifies my nutrition tracking, making it easier to watch my calories.
