Learn The Basics About Macronutrients:
The food you eat contains three macronutrients: protein, carbohydrates and fat.
provide 4 calories per gram
provides 4 calories per gram
provides 9 calories per gram
Besides carbohydrates, protein and fats, the only other substance that provides calories is alcohol. Alcohol provides 7 calories per gram. Alcohol, however, is not a macronutrient because we do not need it for survival – so steer clear of it!
Your meals should be made up of mostly protein, with some carbohydrates and a smaller amount of fat. Avoid meals that contain a majority of 1 macronutrient, such as snack foods made mostly out of sugar. An example of a well-balanced macronutrient meal is a large piece of unbreaded fish or chicken, with a small side of vegetables and sweet potatoes.

Do yourself a huge favor and remove all the sugary snacks, salty snacks and generally unhealthy foods that are in your kitchen and your fridge. Stock your pantry and fridge with only healthy items that will help you reach your goals!
2. Keep Track of What You Eat
This includes every little morsel of food that you eat at any time of the day – not just at meals. Writing down what and how much you eat will allow you to manage your calories. It will also hold you accountable. Try downloading a free app like MyFitnessPal to help you track specific foods and monitor your progress.
