Position Stand #5 – Practical Considerations for Supplement Use in Sport
Post of the week By Andreas Pappas greek_spartan
People will say tracking and weighing your food is obsessive, I can't do it, I'm lazy etc.
Or they'll say they don't have time or it takes up to much of their time.
If that's the case, ask yourself then how important are your goals to you?
The true reality is if you never counted, weighed, or measured your food you'll never really know how much you eating.
And you'll never go through a very important fundamental learning process.
Unfortunately some things require a little sacrifice, as is with anything in life.
Tracking foods is a process that does take time & patience to eventually master.
But once you've learnt the art of mastering it, it becomes a breeze in the park.
Yes, tracking macros/calories has its place & at certain times requires accuracy & some form discipline depending on the goal at stake.
But this isn't to say you have to be a slave to numbers, formulas & track every single gram of food for the rest of your life.
Some people love to track for life being meticulous, some like set meal plans, some eat mindfully & intuitively & that's all fine as long as it suites & works for you & your goals.
But one things for sure is that tracking foods is a vital starting point in educating yourself about foods and creating food awareness, seeing it more as a long term Investment that yields the highest return.
It teaches you portion control & gives you the opportunity to eat the foods you enjoy without feeling guilty & from deviating off your plan while still making progress.
Even just by tracking for a couple weeks, you already start to train yourself about food values & how much food you should be actually eating for your goals.
Spending a good portion of time tracking has taught many to also unconsciously & mindfully eat for their goals & life, listening more & more to their biofeedback steering away from the calorie/macro obsession.
Years of tracking has given me the freedom to eat this way, not obsessing so much about numbers & formulas anymore.
