Lots of media attention yesterday when the National Obesity Forum and the Public Health Collaboration in the UK issued a report demanding a “major overhaul” of dietary guidelines – in particular, claiming that the focus on low-fat diets, which has dominated dietary thinking for the last 40 years, has been a mistake. Michael Mosley is the latest person to back their recommendations.
Tracking is also a very useful thing to do when you are trying to achieve a goal. For example trying to stay below a certain number of grams of carbs per day.
Real Meal Revolution have a superb meal tracking tool. You simply enter in what your meal comprises of and it gives you the carb, fat and protein breakdown in grams. It also presents it in graphical format. Fantastic!
