My third truth to weight loss and perhaps the most fundamental is simply if you burn more calories than you take in you will lose weight.
Tracking your calories is all about accountability. You know your goals you know what you are eating. Everything you eat or drink has calories, It tells you right on the label how many calories are in the food. By simply keeping a food log of what you eat and how many calories you have consumed you will better hold yourself accountable for achieving your daily goals.
I hope I have not bored anyone.
As a bit of disclaimer, you can chose to eat anything you would like to as long as you monitor your calories and you will see weight loss; however if your goal is to be healthier there are other factors besides calories to consider. That of course is not my focus at this time but some more information on nutrition you should see this article
The final parts of this series will focus on some “tricks” and tips to help on our weight loss journey.
