Cronometer can change the way you think about food and your body.
And it keeps you organized.
As you may have read in my recent instagram posts, meeting basic needs is the first and foremost important pillar of health, not to mention creative power.
If you want to be on the road to your best self, you can start with basic needs.
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, I sit down for 5-10 minutes and log my food. It may seem tedious at first, but if you try it once you may see the surprising value in certain foods. Then, the app has an option to 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 can really give 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. Click here to get 10% off Cronometer Gold Membership.
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.
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 and if you find that you can’t live without it, then the paid version can give you access to so much more.
