- A Food Scale – Measuring calories that you eat can be tricky, especially when eating off brand foods or homemade dishes. One helpful tool in measuring calories is to buy a food scale. A food scale will help you measure foods that you aren’t sure about the calorie intake for and may not have information available for online or on a calorie tracking app. For example, if someone drops off a homemade lasagna, measure your serving on the food scale and look up the estimated calorie count per ounce of homemade lasagna. Odds are your calorie count will get really close to accurate.
- MyFitnessPal – My Fitness Pal is the best calorie tracking app there is. There is a free version of the app that gives you a full access to calorie tracking for all kinds of foods. If you’d like better daily tracking and more detailed charts, the full version is $15 per month. This will really kick your weight loss into high gear if you can be disciplined enough to enter all of your meals into the app daily!
