- Brush up on serving sizes and portion control
- Track the calories you eat today, paying particular attention to calories eaten vs. daily calorie goal. Listen to your body! If you’re hungry but have already reached your daily calorie goal, then you need eat more and raise your calorie goal.
- Come on over to Facebook, Twitter or Google + for support (or use the comments down below).
- Fill out the Daily Habits Awareness Sheet for Week 2 at the end of the day.
Serving Size & Portion Control
Time for a refresher! At the beginning of the boot camp, I pointed out two articles for more info on portion and serving size. Now would be a good time to reread those articles:
You can also read Mastering Food Portion Control — a one-page guide from the American Council on Exercise (ACE). Log in to the tracker for access to the handout.
If you need more information on reading labels, you can read How To Make Sense of Food Labels
And if you really want to sink your teeth into reading food labels, the US FDA has more detailed information here: How to Understand and Use the Nutrition Facts Label
