Did you know that 88% of people who track their intake on applications such as My Fitness Pal for (just) 7 days lose weight? Regardless of if you want to lose weight, tone up, or just get healthy, tracking your food provides priceless insight into your starting point, areas for improvement, and ensuring progress over time.

Instead of making your 3rd last minute trip to the grocery store or drive thru for the week, maybe a meal plan is what you need.
