I know you are wondering what the heck? An app or containers, what does it all mean. On my fitness journey I am really focused on my intake, with any fitness journey change is NOT made by exercise alone. NUTRITION has a major role and with my years of eating disorder I must always be knowledgeable of my intake. This does not mean I don’t eat carbs I do, pastry of all types included. Do I sometimes in celebrating go over, yes just not daily or weekly. Before you think I also have those weird cravings and I again satisfy my cravings but not overly.
Having an eating disorder too thin, too thick, too skinny, too fat. I just want to be a healthier me without undereating or overeating. I do use an APP and I am guilty for not using it daily but I’m good for 5-7 days a week. The APP keeps me focused monitor my calories and breaks down my macros and micros all good also calculates my fat content. The APP as much as I like it it does not break down exactly how much proteins, vegetables, healthy fat, carbs I should take in. Am I saying APPs for nutrition are bad, NOPE they do work, you just need to know which is important.
Now to the containers, I am a team beachbody @teambeachbody.com fan, loaded with over 700 workouts with different trainers, and each have a nutrition plan with 95% of the food you already eat via use of containers or a method 2BMindset. Both are so awesome. The containers break down how much of it should each day to promote healthy intake as well as see results of your workouts. I’m getting better but I still need improvement.
When consuming the right amounts of food there is a lot of food, and when I’m really 100 on my nutrition I notice a greater results to my workouts.
Which do I choose, both sometimes I am so amazed as to how much food I consume with the containers and still be under versus just eating and inputting for macros and micros. They both work, its up to the individual to decide which works with their life style and workout. It’s also up to the individual to decide which APP is best for them.
My journey consists of the containers and Lose It APP.
To a week of Happy, Healthy, Good eats and Great Workouts.
