How healthy was that palak paneer you had for dinner? Could eating two helpings of poha be the reason you’ve put on an extra kilo almost overnight?
Most of us struggle to determine how many calories go into a dish we’ve eaten. To make your life easier, we at HealthifyMe have introduced a ‘Tweet To Track’ interactive programme. All you need to do is tweet what you ate @HealthifyMe and we will tell you its calorie count.
How can tracking calories work for you? Take a look:
It can help simplify your weight loss goals Knowing the calorie count of your food can help you set smaller, more achievable parametres for weight loss, like ‘I will consume 500 calories less daily’ which can contribute towards a larger goal of say, losing 15 kg in a year.
You can be more flexible about how you eat Studies have shown that flexible dieters – those that make small adjustments to their eating habits when necessary – are more successful than those who make stringent rules. By tracking your calorie intake, you can eat less at other meals through the day or pool in your calories for one big meal. Self-tracking gives you that choice.
It can motivate you to eat less When people track their food intake, they usually eat less. Research has shown that people who kept a food diary lost twice as much weight as people who did not track their food.
