    What’s the easiest way to not only keep track of your diet but stick to it?

    I’ve heard a lot of people use calorie counters but I think there’s more to meals than just calories.

      I use an app for my phone called My Fitness Pal. I love it and my trainer recommends it as well.

      That depends on the diet. If it is a bad diet, nothing will make you stick to it and that is a good thing. There certainly is more to it than calories. McDonalds french fries has about the same amount of calories as a balanced meal of carbohydrates, proteins and fats but no where near the needed nutrition. Once you have learned how to eat for life, as opposed to living to eat, you don't need to track anything.

      LisaR, great question. I have been on weight watchers since last February. I have lost 80 lbs so far. I did not join weight watchers but had a friend who did and she told me how many points I was allowed in a day. I went online and got to a free website that tells you how many points foods have and then downloaded an app that scans food to tell you how many points products have. I eat whatever I want and just stay within my points. Its very easy. Good luck, Carm.

      Great question. I look forward to the answers, in hope to learn more.

      I've read (and downloaded but not used) the my fitness pal ap. Lately I keep reading how writing down all that you,eat is the best tool. One thing that has helped me is not wanting to do anymore damage to my body, wanting to be good to myself. With that in mind I refuse to eat fast foods, and mostly eat home made. I'm also trying to load up on veggies and fruits. I still overindulge a lot, and cutting out animal products is a huge challenge (ideally I'd like to follow Dr Furhmans Eat to Live diet for life).
