Most of the times, the reality is not that great and you would find yourself making grave mistakes. This will answer your query - "Why" are you not losing/gaining weight ? 3. Road to progress. As said earlier, calorie tracking helps you understand about how your body is responding on particular amount of calories, it also helps you carve out a path towards the progress. It helps you know what amount of deficit (to lose weight) you are on, what amount of surplus(to gain weight) you are on and helps you calculate your maintenance calories approximately and plan your fat loss or muscle gain phase in a better manner. 4. Macro break up. Helps you understand the macronutrient break up that you are having in your food intake. This enables you to play with different macronutrient break ups and apply to yourself so that you can create a sustainable diet for yourself. 5. Stay on track. Helps you stay on track and adjust the calories on days when you have to eat out or on the days when you are not so hungry or days when you are very much hungry. Helps you stay accountable to yourself when you are tracking each and everything that goes into your mouth. So start tracking your calorie intake and progress in your fitness journey !
