How To Eat Right For Your Body

Thursday, January 21, 2016

To follow up on my most recent YouTube video, I wanted to supply you with some valuable sites to help educate and guide you in the right path to eat right for your body.

I am using the word eat instead of diet due to the stigma to the concern of diets. This shouldn't be a negative word but I feel eating right reflects eating smart for your own good of your health and body. This includes eating the right calories for your body with the focus of your current height, weight, sex, and age.

Starting first with IIFYM also known as If It Fits Your Macros. You should starting eating right for your body by determining how many calories, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, sugar, and fiber. I find this website the most accurate when calculating the right information for YOU.

Once you have your numbers, write them down. The best place for me is on my phone in notes. I will then start to log in what I eat on the My Fitness Pal app or website.

My Fitness Pal Hacks:

  • You can scan the upc barcode using the app and then adjust the serving sizes. 
  • You can now log in recipes. This is where I can try new meals and it even saves it in my history to log it in again if I make several meals for the week. 
  • To log recipes in the app you will go to more, then select My Recipes & Foods tab. This is also located under the food tab on the website. You will then copy the website and paste in the box for the URL. Pretty Cool! 
  • If you are busy through the day take photos of your meals and before you go to bed look at your photos and delete them after you logged them in. You can also write what you eat on a sticky note, note book, or what I write in is my agenda if I can't bother with my phone on a busy day. 
  • Weigh-in once a week and log it in. It is motivating to track progress whether it is good or bad be honest with yourself. When you make improvements celebrate it! 
Helpful Websites I mentioned for Recipe Ideas: 
Fit Men Cook - I highly recommend getting the app! Recipes, videos, and a shopping list for the grocery store all in one place! 

Good luck on your fitness journey! If you would like to see more posts like these let me know in the comments!
