Secrets of Success

Track First!!



I have found that if I track my food BEFORE I eat it, I'm more successful in staying within my ranges. This is for 2 reasons: first, I can see ahead of time if I'm eating too much, before it's too late to make changes. Second, it gives me the opportunity to see the impact of what I'm eating, and decide whether or not a particular food (like, say, ice cream!) is really worth the cost on that day.

  • That is absolutely true! I usually try to do that for at least breakfast and lunch so I know what I'm left with for 5-9 o'clock. :) - by FIONAFAE
