Tracking Calories & Activity’s – My Fitness Pal…

Can whey protein really help me lose weight

Share This Post with a Friend!

I’m still tracking calories & activity’s on a daily basis…using My Fitness Pal app.

This free app I’ve mentioned before in various blog post is my favorite app ever!! All you have to do is download the free app from the App Store on your smart phone, or devise, then commit to using it.

The secret to losing weight and keeping that unwanted weight off, is to use an app My Fitness Pal, and stick to your plan. The plan is simple!! Find something that works for you and just stick with it.

Monitoring what you eat and drink on a daily basis is a huge step in the right direction. Also, by committing to a simple work our schedule is the next step to losing weight and keeping it off.

What I’ve found to work 100% of the time is keeping it simple. Doing a high intensity, low duration workout is the best workout you can ever commit to. By keeping it short, you won’t get burnt out, and anyone can find 10-15 minutes 3 times a week if they truly want to!!

The next step is high intensity. This means do your workouts without rest in between sets. Of course, you won’t be able to start off like this, but you can most certainly work up to it. Right?

So by tracking calories & activity’s (walking, along with your workouts) allows you to refer back to different days, or weeks, or months that you may want to go back to. By tracking everything, you will over time develop habits and it will help hold you accountable to yourself. Trust me, this works like magic…if you actually commit to it!!

Tracking Calories & Activity’s

Keep in mind that muscle out weighs fat. Muscle also burns fat. So to keep it simple, build some muscle and then just maintain that muscle and you will have a much easier time controlling your weight and keeping fat off.

Using a good daily vitamin is a huge advantage for you and your body, as well as a good quality Whey Protein. By referring back to older blog post on this website you can find the multi vitamins, whey protein powders and other supplements that I’ve used and continue to use and love. Protein helps build muscle and burn fat off. A simple formula is; keep your daily protein higher than your carbohydrates.

Just one more reason to use the app called “My Fitness Pal“. I also recommend using the free app called Garmin Connect. These two apps work perfect together by simply hitting the sync button after your day is complete. I use a wrist bank called Garmin Vivofit 2. This will record your daily steps, heart rate, sleep and more. Once I sync, then I can jump on my Garmin Connect app on my smart phone and see graphs on my sleeping, eating, calories, workouts, steps and much more.
