Whether you like it or not, the most efficient and effective way to get your nutrition on track is to weigh and measure what you’re putting in your mouth.

First you need to get set up with a FitDay account.  This is an awesome FREE nutrition and exercise log that allows you to input what you’ve eaten and it’ll do all the calorie and nutrient ratios for you.  Fantastic.

To be accurate though you need to know quantities – guess work won’t really cut it.  This is where a set of measuring cups and spoons is essential – a set of scales is also a good investment and you can get all three for under £5 ($10).  For me, one of the best investment returns ever.

Then all you do is use the measuring equipment to see how much of everything you’re eating and plug the numbers into Fitday.  If the numbers don’t mean anything to you, then you have a few choices:

  1. Drop us a line and if you’re local arrange a one-on-one consultation and we’ll get you on track.
  2. Sign up for our remote consultation service where we’ll communicate via email and find out everything about you so that we can get you on track.
  3. Do some research online about where your numbers should be.  The Zone is a good place to start and by using a calculator such as this one, you can find out what your protein requirement is and work from there.

Nutrition can be a bit of a minefield, but you can’t expect to get to where you want to be if you don’t know where you’re coming from.  Plug in the numbers, see what the current situation is and then if you need any help, drop us a line.
