As you may have read in my recently released book, The Book of Self Love, basic needs is the first and foremost important pillar of health and of what you want to become.
If you want to be on the road to your best self, you start with basic needs.
Now with any goal, you will see challenges. You will have critics.
But you have to be bigger than that fear, insecurity, whatever it may be.
Your purpose is to live as your best version of you. How do you do that?
Build your empire. Start with the foundation.
Here’s a tool that can help in that process. It’s called Cronometer.
Basically what this app does is it tracks your nutrition and food intake.
So at the end of each meal or end of each day, sit down for 5-10 minutes and log your food. It may seem tedious at first, but once you input certain foods that you have daily, they save in your list so you can just click them into daily log.
Once you have all of your targets set, each time you add food to your log you will see the %’s change. Here are some screenshots of my day:
This app really gives you a clear view of what you are consuming, breaking down protein, fats, and carbs. It counts calories in and calories burned. You can see your nutrient targets based on Vitamins and Minerals.
You can see based on my day that I had met 98% of my targets for the day:
I balanced protein and carbs.
I supplemented Vit D and Vit K- so based on my food intake, I could have had a little less of each for that day.
I’m working on lowering my fat intake, but it is challenging when you have to get enough calories while nursing a baby.
When you set up your account for Cronometer, be sure to set your own personal targets under your profile. It’s important to also follow up with your physician before making any dietary or lifestyle changes.
You can use the free version of the app during the 30 Day Challenge, and if you find that you can’t live without it, then I totally encourage you to try the paid version. This gives you access to a lot more.
