4 February 2016 Tracking Food & Exercise is Not Just About Calories
Tracking food and exercise is much more than just counting calories. It's about discovering relationships between what you put in your mouth, your activity, and your health. Read this post for ideas on what tracking can do for you.
Yes! Logging is an excellent way to stay on top of the eating and hydration protocol that your bariatric team (e.g. doctor and dietitian) has asked you to follow. However, you will not be using the typically recommended intake (e.g. DRIs/RDAs) for calories, fat, carb, and protein. Instead, use the nutrient goals and intake guidelines given to you by your bariatric team.

Use an app that allows you to customize nutrient goals. For instance, MyNetDiary allows customization of nutrient goals with Premium membership.
