Ok, so I know I built that email up for this huge grand SECRET to reveal and honestly this is such a simple thing. If something is so simple why do we not do it? Why if we know something will help us especially with our health, why do we still not do it?
We preach here and Transformation Fitness and Wellness a complete program. A program that includes Nutrition, Resistance Training, Cardiovascular Training, Flexibility, and Coaching, then how come the first item Nutrition is so over looked?
Our big secret is Food Journaling! We use a free service called My Fitness Pal. www.myfitnesspal.com
We ask all clients to sign up, friend tfwellness, and then set their settings to allow “friends” to be able to view their journal. We go on and check our clients’ nutrition every 3 days.
This is such a huge value and you get instant help with what to change or add to your nutrition.
Studies have shown that food journaling can double your weight loss!
I spoke with my father the other day about his P.E. class he was taking online; yes you can now take P.E. online…
He said he had an assignment to journal a week of what he ate. I told him about My Fitness Pal and he started inputting his food. He was shocked at the amount of Sodium he was consuming!
This is one of the areas we look at when we are checking someone’s journal. You can be eating right within your daily recommended amount of calories, but what makes up those calories matters!
Sodium is a hard one to get away from, you eat one meal out and you are over your daily requirements most of the time.
But what I am thankful for is his assignment brought awareness to what he was consuming. This is one of the biggest items we talk about with our clients.
You do not have to only eat lettuce and carrots, but what you eat does matter, and how much you eat! It’s a simple Free tool that I highly recommend but it takes discipline.
Do you have the discipline to fill out a food journal?
It’s all about consistency!
