Tracking Nutrition on Spark

Sunday, June 19, 2011

I finally tried the nutrition tracker and it is so easy to use. I have been trying to lose the few pounds from trips and cooking for my son( skinny as a rail and can eat anything). After fooling myself for a while I decided to start the tracking. It is a great tool and there is no excuse not to use it( if you want or need to keep track, I know some plans don't call for it). I lost the weight, but better than that, I found out that when I eat what I know I should, all the goals on my nutrition are met( except calcium and vit. D and I take supplements of those). The proportion of fat, protein and carbs are right where they should be, without me having to try. So I know my everyday diet is healthy and balanced.

    Just started using and realized how unhealthy my choices have been. Key is honesty when tracking

    I agree with you. It helped me loose 40 lbs. Time will tell if I loose the last 30lbs I would like to loss. Than again being and maintating where I am isn't to hard to take. Either way I'm healthier than what I once was and using the tracker is how I'll stay that way. emoticon

    That is great Pam, me too! I think that when I was gaining before, I didn't realize how much I was eating and I slowly started eating more and more. It is really helping me lose the weight this time.

    I'll tell you, that tracker is what really helped me take off 40 pounds. It took all the guessing out of my food.

    I LOVE the nutritional tracker too! I think it's a great tool. I know, as you stated, that some look at it as a 'legalistic' tool, but I personally think it's a very useful and wonderful tool.

    We (by which I mean people) are really good at fooling ourselves. The remedy for self-delusion is fact and the nutrition tracker provides exactly that. Congrats on making use of it.

    The nutrition tracker has really helped me. Before I started tracking, I thought I was eating pretty good. It would not have been bad, if I were triplets! ha!

    Spark on!
