How do I keep track of my food?
The best way to track your food and numbers is by using an app and I prefer using MyFitnessPal to keep track. There are several apps out there to use but this one is the easiest because you can scan all your food in and adjust your portion sizes. Going along with tracking and counting your macros you need to know exactly how much you will be eating. The best way to keep track of your food accurately even though it cannot be measured 100% unless it is broken down and tested (nutrition labels are significant) is by using a food scale. Paying attention to food labels on the packaging is very important because of the nutritional information, but in the end a scale will ensure you accuracy and hold you accountable for what you eat. As far as weighing your foods this answer will always vary depending upon who you ask and who you are working with as a coach. In my own experiences I feel raw measures tend to be more accurate but at the end of the day when it comes to weighing your food it will vary, for instance, condiments, oils, and even sodas can be difficult to weigh out. Worst case scenario when in doubt always do your best, eyeball your portion sizes, and never forget to log your food correctly.
