This week I will begin watching my calorie intake but I want it to be fun! I have agreed to limit my calories intake to 1200 calories daily but I have no idea what that looks like and so recording what I eat with an approximate calorie value will give me the guidelines to learn portion control.
There are so many fantastic tools available to record calories and exercise. I have chosen a program called “my fitness pal“.What I like about this particular weight loss tool is that I can record in metric measurements. I also wanted to find a program that allowed me to record both my calorie intake and my exercise output.
Here are a few more to get you started.
livestrong.com (imperial only)
fitwatch.com (imperial and metric)
everyday health.com (imperial and metric)
On target nutrition (imperial only) gives you a 7 day free trial but is a little misleading in that they advertise JOIN FREE but don’t mention the $7.99 a month beyond the first week.
If anyone knows of any other helpful links I’d love to hear about them!
