When it comes to managing your weight, we
know that it mostly boils down to our ability,

or lack of ability, to properly control our
food intake.

Successful weight loss is mostly dictated
by eating less in terms of *calories* than

we burn.
Weight gain is the opposite, where above all
else, you need to eat more.

These concepts are fairly simple to understand.
Execution, however, tends to be significantly
tougher.

One of the main reasons why: According to
the scientific data, more often than not,

we tend to underreport our food intake.
In other words, we suck at understanding our
food.

We often think we're eating less than we
actually are, and that's why we don't

see any results.
So how do we fix this?
Well, you know those calorie tracking apps
your fit friend has always been harping about?

That might just do the trick.
Track your food to know exactly how much you're
eating!

Crazy idea, right?
In all seriousness, monitoring your food can
be quite effective.

And it's actually nothing new.
Even back in 93, studies implementing self-monitoring
tests were able to yield great weight loss

results.
With pen and paper no less.
Nowadays, mobile apps make tracking easier
than ever, even recording intake just by scanning

your food labels.
But to elucidate tracking efficacy further,
we can take a little dive into a fresh, 2019

study from the Journal of Obesity Society.
In this 6-month weight loss study, subjects
were instructed to track every single thing

they ate or drank into a web-based food tracking
system.

However, researchers weren't interested
in the subjects' food choices, but rather

their tracking patterns.
With that in mind, data was collected on the
amount of times subjects logged their food

per day, the time they spent on the website,
the amount of days per month they tracked

their food, and the amount of weight they
lost.

The results:
Those that lost the most weight, categorized

as losing 10% or more of their initial bodyweight,
were the most consistent in their food tracking

endeavors.
Those that lost the least, categorized as
losing less than 5%, were also the least consistent.

At the end of the study, the most successful
group tracked 21 days of the month with an

average of about 3 sessions per day.
The least successful group clocked in at only
9 days per month with a one and a half session

average per day and more than half quit tracking
completely.

Boom.
Simply put, track your food folks.
Now, if you're one of those that complain
that tracking takes too much time and effort,

note that the most successful group in the
study initially took only 23 minutes per day

to track their food.
By the end, it dropped down to just 16 minutes.
Again, they used a web-based system.
Consumer apps like MyFitnessPal should be
much easier and quicker to use.

Perhaps taking only 10 minutes of your day.
Now, a few tips on actually tracking your
food:

1.
Make sure you log EVERYTHING, especially those
little snacks you think wouldn't make a

difference.
They do.
2.
Track frequently.
Best practice is about 3 times per day like
the folks in the study, preferably around

the times you have your big meals.
3.
Once you know your average intake, adjust
it as you see fit.

In short, more food if you're trying to
gain weight.

Less food, or better yet, more exercise, if
you're trying to lose weight.

And 4, be consistent.
No explanation needed there.
Oh, and one more thing.
Even though tracking's main appeal is to
learn your caloric needs, it doesn't mean

to just go eat whatever you want until you
hit that magic calorie number.

Choosing healthy whole food choices is still
a good idea.

And getting something like more protein, especially
for weight loss, might help you achieve your

results more effectively.
Another topic for another day.
But there you have it.
Track your food folks.
Once you understand your food a bit better,
you can dial your tracking back just a tad

bit.
For now, let's get to it and happy tracking!
Let me know about your tracking experiences
in the comments below.

Has it worked for you?
If not, what's something better?
If you enjoyed this video, please it give
it a hearty thumbs up and share it with your

tracking-loving friends.
As always, thank you for watching and TRACK
YOUR PROTEIN!
