I just have my own document with a chart. But lots of people have used MFP at some point and found it useful. You could also note it down in your challenge thread or battle log if you have one, and there could be spreadsheets in the PVP weight loss thread.  I don't know about the NF app, sorry. I think I read that it's part of Prime, and is currently in beta testing.

Harriet? It's either the English for Henriette (French) or the feminine version of Harry.

Oh interesting, i just don't think i've heard the name very often.

I have a pen and paper journal that I use along side my challenge log.  I record stats like that as well as fitness achievements there. 

This is a good idea , ty. 😃

I'd say it depends on the snack! If you're replacing it with carrots, I think that's fine. Nuts and fruit make a good snack too, or even a boiled egg or two. One thing I've found is it helps to plan ahead in case of snack cravings, and have a plan for what I will eat if I get the munchies.

I use My Fitness Pal and Fitbit. If you're logging food, too, MFP has more options around macros, or it did when I started using it. I use Fitbit to log exercise and steps, and MFP to log food and weight and then get the two apps to synch with one another. I used to log weight AND body fat %, but I found the machine at my gym was notoriously unreliable and didn't seem to coincide with my habits or changes in my body, so I stopped using it. Now I just step on the scales every now and then. I did buy some cheap callipers from MyProtein a few months back, but not sure if I want to get into that level of self critique. Has anybody has any experiences with those things?

 

I find it can be really helpful to log food, even if just to get an idea of what you are eating over a day and what kind of nutrients you're getting. I'm a snacker, too, so a big part of changing my habits was swapping out cookies and chocolate for fruit and icelandic yoghurt. I have a sweet tooth and you will prise sweet snacks from my cold dead fingers, but having a big stack of apples and clementines on the table and some little pots of Skyr in the fridge means I don't miss the chocolate all that much! If you're going to start saying "no" to certain foods more, I think it helps to have plenty of "yes!" options to balance it out.
