A lot of CAGs started using the 'Lose It!' app on their iPhones or Android devices. 'Lose It!' helps you set a goal weight, track your calories and exercise and contains a database full of foods from restaurants, grocery stores and pretty much any place you can think. You can also track nutrition and see how many grams of Fat, Carbs and Protein you're taking it.
If you create an account, you can become friends with people and track their progress too.
My account name is SeanR1221@Gmail.com
I figured we'd use this thread to motivate people, track each other's progress, give advice and post before and after pictures for the full effect.
I'll start off.
I'm 24, 5'8, 174 pounds. I'd like to cut down about 15-20 pounds. 'Lose It!' has me eating a little over 1800 calories a day to meet this goal by January.
Here is my before picture...
My diet is pretty consistent throughout the week.
Breakfast is Egg Whites (3) and Turkey Bacon (3).
Lunch is 1TBS of natural Peanut Butter on Whole Wheat Bread and a 1/4 cup of Almonds.
Dinner is Skinless Chicken (8oz) and Broccoli (2cups).
I'll take a scoop of Whey Protein mixed with water before and after I work out.
I encourage other people to post their stories, their goals, their "Lose It!" usernames and their before pictures.
Good luck everyone!
