Tracking versus Planning

Sunday, June 16, 2019

I get so frustrated when I am trying to eat healthy and everyone tells me to track what I am eating. I hate tracking. In the past when a doctor (not mine anymore) insisted I track I did not eat for 3 days because I did not want to write anything down. Then when I did eat according to the nutritionist he sent me to and I gained weight - he accused me of not writing down everything or lying about what I was eating. He did not understand my relationship with carbs.

Now I have a doctor who believes I know what I am doing with my diet. Been practicing a ketogenic diet for almost a year now. I plan all my meals for the week, go shopping, and eat my meal plans. I tell my friends I am on the lunch box diet - what I pack to eat in my lunch box is all I can have for the day. The only exceptions I make are coffee (when I prepared my fixings) and water.

Don't know if I am losing weight. My belt has not gotten tighter for a while, so I know i need to adjust my macros and make sure that is what I am eating.

    I find that for certain meals, I tend to eat the same things quite often. So I'll copy the meals from one day to the next - or maybe from three days ago to today. Helps save a ton of time!!!

    I, too, hate to track. For one thing, I dislike having to enter all the nutritional information for a different brand of a food. Each person who enters a food seems to call it by a different name. Would that they would all look and see that it is already there. You look up one name and it is listed another way. Frustration!

    Glad to see that you found what will work for you! Keep posting about how you're doing on keno. My son is also doing that.
