Watch Your Fat/protein/car

This Sparked Me!

I've found that when I watch the pie chart on my daily report, I am better able to keep my carb intake at 50% of my calories. My body works better at burning with a lower carb intake. So I try to make sure that no more than 50% of my calories come form carbs, and 25% from fats and proteins.

    Hi - don't worry about me not sleeping well. It's just a cycle I go through sometimes. An elderly aunt of mine is not doing too well & lots else going on.

    This is exactly what I have done also..I feel that doing this and drinking enough water has really helped me.

    You are so right. At the moment, I am trying to decrease the fat portion of the pie!
