Enjoying this Lose It! App...

Friday, September 14, 2012

I didn't realize that Spark People also had an app for tracking food, but I'd already started w/the Lose It! App so, for the time being anyway,this will be the one I'll be using. It's pretty fun & easy - just hit the app button and you can add in foods by bar code, previous meals, previous foods from you own list or just type in a food and it brings up a list of choices. I opted to log my nutrients: Carbs/ Fats/ Proteins as in SP.
As a "motivational tool", my daily log is automatically emailed to me. There is a calc. for calories burned in exercise and a calc. to compute where you need to be cal. wise to reach your goal.

It's helped me to stay accountable.

Here is a copy of Thurs. log as emailed to me for anyone interested: (It looks a bit more organized in the email, but after copying & pasting -here it is)
