4. Track your food intake
Rolling off of the last point, you need to start watching your food intake like you watch for news of the next season of Stranger Things.
Every. Single. Day. You need to track what you’re consuming and how much you’re consuming of it all. Everyone’s body is different, so your number of calories and the right balance of macronutrients will be unique to you.
However, generally, you want to consume just under your recommended daily caloric intake. This will make your body start burning fat so that it can maintain its necessary energy consumption level (because it needs to get it from somewhere and it will turn first to your fat store).
