Secrets of Success

Track Your Food 1st!



No matter how big or small it is, if I eat or drink it, I track it. At first I just ate whatever and tracked it later to see what I consumed. Now I plan ahead and track my food BEFORE I eat it, so I can see whether I can afford to eat everything I planned or if it will be outside of my nutritional goals. I can then adjust if necessary before it's too late. :)

  • I do this too. Not all the time, but when I know I am eating a big meal for dinner, I track it in the morning. That way I know how much to indulge on breakfast and lunch. Today I am making pasta with meat sauce, one of my favs. So, I definitely tracked it first. - by TIME-4-TINA
