LOG YOUR FOOD

TIP: Log Your Food
No matter what your fitness goal is, you will eventually hit a plateau unless you log and track your food. We can have success in the gym, but fail in the kitchen, which results in stalled progress.
You have to log your food.
The good news is that apps like Lose It make this a breeze. Lose It has a barcode scanner to instantly scan barcodes on pre-packaged food, and a searchable database of just about anything you can think of eating.
HOMEWORK: Capture The Data
Log your food for two weeks on the Lose It or My Fitness Pal app.
Do not change what or how you eat.
Do not measure your food on a scale.
Just log what you are currently normally eating so we can capture your present status quo.
This will be our starting point for all-things-nutrition.
