Why can food-logging help me?

  1. Gain insights: By logging your food you gain insights in your actual kcal and (macro)nutrients intake.
  2. Learning: By comparing your intakes to your needs, learn where you can improve meal moments and nutrient intake.
  3. Maintain energy balance: Food-logging allows you to tailor meals to your preferences and balance your energy intake. If a snack feels too large, log a smaller one and redistribute missed calories to other meals for better balance.

How can I make food-logging a succes?

Each meal provides energy bars showing your calorie needs and macronutrient ranges, but treat them as guidelines. Occasional deviations are okay. And always remember, every meal is a chance to enhance your performance!
