If you don’t know how much you’re eating, you won’t know when to stop, making you unable to control unwanted weight gain. Knowing how many calories you eat compared to how many you burn allows you total daily control over body weight. Unfortunately, people can’t see or feel daily weight changes but daily calorie intake versus your burn CAN tell you.
The average adult gains 1-3LBS per year, or in daily numbers, ~1/365 -1/121LBS per day (or an average of 10 to 30 calories per day more than you burn). Body fat creeps up so slowly it’s easy to ignore it until you’re forced to put energy into losing weight – and the perceived effort, which is any weight loss program or method, requires motivation. Motivation to change your lifestyle means motivation to change your behavior, and it requires lots of thinking, planning, actions and sometimes counseling. And the method you choose may not fit your lifestyle, which means you ultimately achieve weight regain. Yet, so you don’t have to go through all the aforementioned, by knowing how much you eat daily by logging your food in the dotFIT program, and you can see it next to how many calories you burn, you will always be in control of your destiny rather than waiting till your clothes no longer fit. And by the way, people who record their foods regularly, so they always know how much they are eating, are the most successful weight losers.
