It is through daily monitoring of your eating habits that you start to understand the effects of a healthy diet. We implement the zone concept into myfitnesspal which allocates 40% of your calories to carbohydrates, 30% of your calories to fat, and 30% of your calories to protein. Make sure to sign up for myfitnesspal so you can start to track your eating.
Remember you can’t lose weight and tone up with just exercise, you need to maintain a healthy eating habit and it can take between 4-6 weeks to start noticing the difference.
