Whether your goal is weight loss, gaining muscle or athletic performance, tracking your food is the ultimate way to achieve those goals.

What are the benefits of tracking? You will become very aware of exactly what you are putting into your body. You’ll start to understand how much you’re eating at one meal, how much you’re snacking at your desk, and you’ll start to see trends in your eating habits like:

– Stress eating
– Bored eating
– Overeating
– Undereating
– How much you eat out
– How many sodas you drink in a day
– Daily sugar intake
– The ratio of proteins to carbs to fats
– Weekend eating behaviors

Paying attention to these things and logging it is a HUGE factor in changing your habits and behavior. This is the first step to moving toward your weight loss goals.

So here is your challenge: start tracking your food and beverage intake RIGHT NOW. My recommendation is to use MyFitnessPal. It’s a super helpful tool.

Here are nine tutorials that will help you get the most out of the app.

  • How to Customize Your Macro Goals Using MyFitnessPal Premium
    Just like the first tutorial listed, this tutorial shows you how to set up your macros in MyFitnessPal but with an important difference: this premium version lets you list the exact macros to the decimal. The free version only lets you enter ballpark numbers.

Whether you’re a newbie trying to set your profile up, or a pro tracking a bulk recipe — these tutorials will help!

After all, what you eat in the kitchen is 80% of attaining your weight loss and fitness goals.
