The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step -- Lao Tzu

RE: The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step -- Lao Tzu
Yeah, any of those programs or apps that track TRENDS will work. That really helps to knock out all the "noise" of the daily ups and downs.

As far as the sugar, that has never been something I have tracked. And really, unless you are a diabetic, tracking sugar is just going to make things more difficult than they need to be. The only things I track are Protein - keep it at 30% and make sure you hit that goal. Carbs - set that at 40%. Fats - set that at 30%. Also, pretty important to track Fiber. Set that one at 30g and make that goal a *minimum*, but strive to get more. Also interesting to track Sodium. Set that one at 2,500mg and consider that to be a *maximum*, however if you eat many processed things or dine out much, that one will likely be over. The nice thing about tracking sodium is that when the scale flings up a pound or two, you might be able to look back and see a high sodium day that might be responsible.

If you track those items you will be fine. If you add too many pieces to the puzzle, it will just get too complicated, and it really doesn't need to be that way. Nail that protein goal and honestly the others will just fall into place...
