FitDay is a free online food log you can use to track your diet. It requires that you do some weighing and measuring of your fuel intake, but it does have the nutritional information of most foods as well as a “create your own” for foods that you eat all the time and can’t find on their database. Each day the macro content (fat, protein, carbs, alcohol. . . yes alcohol is a macro nutrient! – at least in my book), of what you have been consuming (for what it’s worth, alcohol counts as carbs for the zone).

You can also create reports showing your the overall macro content of your foods over a period of time as well as track your calorie intake and expenditures – among many other things I have not figured out yet.

I have been using it now for a couple of weeks, and I like the results. I discovered that my “paleo – ish” diet has been starving me! I don’t consume nearly enough calories even to maintain my body weight let alone put on a few pounds of muscle.

Check it out if you are looking for some new gimmick to make the boredom of weighing and measuring your food more interesting. And yes, you have to weigh and measure. It doesn’t do you any good to lie to the machine (many studies have shown that we all underestimate how much we are eating).

    I’ve decided to make my Saturday afternoon workouts my weight vest workouts…not really sure why, but I did. So with that, today I took on Michael with the vest. 29:54; about 12 minutes slower than without the vest, but I’m still pleased it was under 30.

    Did fight Gone Bad today. Big thanks to JJ for some good advice a couple weeks back. I got a score of 409 with a PR of 21. I planned out all of my sets and had goals set for each exercise. My goals were 3*40 on PP, 3*25 on SDHP, 3*30 on Box Jumps, 3*25 on Wall Ball, and 3*20 on the rowing. The total would have been 420 but as you can see i didn’t meet my goals on everything. Can’t wait til next time i want to give Brandon a run for his money.
