Tracking what you eat during the day allows you to inventory what you eat. and helps you to decide what to eliminate or continue in your dieting habits. Consider food tracking like budgeting your money.
You wouldn’t want to spend money on useless things especially when you’re planning on taking a vacation at one of your “dream getaways.” Likewise, you don’t want an intake of empty or excessive calories because it puts you at risk to gain weight.
The United States Department of Agriculture has developed a dietary tracking tool called SuperTracker via their website: www.choosemyplate.gov.
With this tool, you can track your food intake and physical activity. You can also personalize your goals and there is a journal feature within the app. You can also create office groups so that others can use SuperTracker together. Healthy eating office challenges can be developed and reports can be run regarding food and physical activity.
