Somewhere in December I wrote a post about constantly monitoring my weight and I found an app/site helping me with this.
Seeing this as a ‘game’ it really helped me monitor everything I put in my mouth in an enjoyable way.
The only downside is that my urge to win the game got too strong.
I wanted to have as much calories left as possible at the end of the day.
Although this had a good impact on my weight, it had a negative impact on my running and daily life. I felt tired and weak.
So after a good 2 months, I decided to park it for a while. I have a greater knowledge concerning everything I eat on a daily basis so I should be able to keep my weight at a desired point just like that.
I would recommend it to people who have no idea how much calories certain food contain and want to gain weight without a real diet. Just watch out if you’re a number freak like me 😉
Having tools like that can be really valuable if you don’t let them control your life. If they’re having a negative impact on your performance/life, definitely worthwhile to rethink how you’re using them! Thanks for sharing your experience.
