Welcome to level 2 of the Nutrition program. In level 2, we will still want to maintain all our hour habits that we developed in level 1.
However, we are now going to really lock down and get a little more advanced with out how we track our daily food intake. We will do this by keeping a daily food journal.
To keep our journal, we will use an app called MyFitnessPal, which can be used on an android or apple phone. It can also be used on a computer.
MyFitnessPal allows you to not only track your food, but keep day to day data our your macronutrient percentages. This means you will know what percentage of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats you eat for the entire day.
MyFitnessPal also allows you to quickly search for foods and their nutrition facts, so you don't have to waste time looking them up in a book.
I'm also able to look inside your MyFitnessPal so I can see your food log on a daily basis, and give you feedback.
In the following videos, I will show you how to set all of that up.
Here are some some key rules and exceptions that you'll want to pay attention two when building your meals and tracking your calories:
- Green veggies do not count as calories or carbs for you! Woo! They are a free food.
- Shoot for a 5:1 ratio of veggies to fruit

Nutrition Level 2 Accountability Group
When on level 2, we will continue to post to the accountability group, but a little bit differently now. We are going to add in one more step - posting our macro nutrient pie chart.
We will continue to write how we do on our proteins, water drinking, and veggies.
Now that you know how to start your Level 2 Nutrition program, I'm going to show you how to track your other progress - your weight and measurements.
