1. Getting a cheap kitchen scale and separating your “meals” into ready-to-go containers can be a game changer if you keep yourself busy. You can save the foods you often eat together in the “meal” section of MyFitnessPal, and not worry about weighing stuff every time!
2. Snacks and liquid calories count too (coffee with creamer, wine, etc). Having at least 2 weeks of this data is crucial for me to adjust your calories & macros to get your body composition to the place we want it the fastest as we move on.
3. Get used to tracking and evaluate how your nutrition looks like at the end of each day. That’s all. In 2-3 weeks you’ll be able to eyeball portions of foods on the go, without even thinking, and eating whole, balanced meals will become an effortless habit. This is our goal!
4. Try “pre-logging” your food in advance and checking if what you want to eat fits into your daily macro goal before it’s too late. You can even slide a piece of pizza or cookie in there with a little bit of planning.
