Welcome!!

My suggestion is to input all your goal stuff and then just start trying to eat within the ranges. If that is too tough, then back it up and step and just start tracking everything you eat. You will see how many calories you currently eat. From there, you can start to figure out substitutions or reducing portion sizes to fit within your range. After a while of experimenting, you'll start figuring out what types of foods keep you full longer, what portion sizes are appropriate, etc. Feel free to ask questions!

Just take it baby steps...one meal at a time. :)

Hello there!

I think the best way to get started is to really assess your eating habits and to think about what specifically you want to change. Drinking more water? Eating more fruits and vegetables? Eating less red meat? Then, take action from there to complete those goals.

The best thing to do of course is track all your food in the Spark Tracker and stay with in the ranges they gives you for cals, fat, protein and carbs!!! It is challenging, but can be lots of fun.

Hope this helps.

Please let me know if you would like to talk about more stuff! Keeping each other motivated can really keep you going through the tough times.

Take care,
Juliana
