I usually go back and forth between tracking and not tracking my diet. I don't often write things down.
Now lately I've decided that I really want to lean out and improve my overall athletic performance. I've decided that I'm going to start tracking my diet a lot more closely.
It's not that I eat poorly when I don't track and it's not that I'm getting fat. I'm still lean and have been for a few years now. I just never really cared that much about the specifics of my own diet. Now I've decided that a great, controlled diet can make a ton of difference in terms of leanness, energy, and athletic performance.
What motivated or motivates you all to track?
