I mentioned on previous blog posts that I am following the advice of two plant-based nutrition experts: Katherine Nilbrink and Chef AJ. Chef AJ has an awesome program called Ultimate Weight Loss. She has teamed up with fitness expert John Pierre. Part of Chef AJ’s program is a very active Facebook Group. I used to think I could do everything on my own, but after falling down one too many times, I realize how much a community of positive, like-minded people can help support you on your wellness journey.
All three experts advise keeping a food journal. I love to write, but for some reason I find food journaling a chore. However, I LOVE technology, so I was curious if a good food journal exists. I know there is an APP for everything!
In the UWL group I kept seeing people mention Two Grand. At first it wasn’t on my radar what it was, but then when John Pierre posted, “I hope you are keeping a food journal,” several people responded saying they use TWO GRAND. That prompted me to check it out.
Two Grand is like using Instagram to keep track of your food intake. You simply take a picture of what you are eating. I remember doing that with my camera a few years ago, but Two Grand keeps track of it and you can share it if you want to. You can also set goals, follow your friends, and participate in challenges like “No eating after 8 p.m., 50 pushups, drink 80 oz of water daily,” etc.
I’m going to give it a try. You can follow me @Vegformation and I will follow you back!
