|We all love short cuts and hacks.
I believe tracking calories is one of them.
We often get a lot of resistance when we tell people to try it for the first time.
Tracking calories and macronutrients sounds complex and a bit of effort.
But it really isn’t once you get going.
Free apps such as MyfitnessPal make it so easy and effortless, that it shouldn’t take more than 10 mins a day to do.
We spend more than 10 minutes each day mindlessly scrolling through Facebook and Instagram, so we absolutely have time to enter your meals into a app.
It’s not something you need to do forever either.
Once you’ve tracked for a while, you can then guesstimate how many calories your consuming that day, and whether that’s going to get you closer or further away from your goal.
Until you’ve tracked your calories and macronutrients – you will never know how easy it is to consume 3000 plus calories.
Once on top of calories, you can then have a break and stop tracking.
And when you feel like you are going off track – have a short time recording foods again.
Tracking your foods takes a lot less effort and time than months of failing at dieting and guessing if you are doing everything correctly.
Getting in shape is a tough challenge and that’s why it’s rare to see people succeed.
Transforming your body will require sacrifice and bit of resilience at first, but the more you do work harder at it – the better the rewards will be.
This next few weeks, keep tracking your foods right up to Christmas day.
If you’ve not tracked before, give it a go and you may be surprised how many calories you consume, when you think that you “don’t really eat that much”.
Use this easier route to get the body shape you work so hard for!
Have a great week
