Re: Crossfit journal 21 vs. Fitday

I agree with Dave, and I've also found some discrepancies among different tracking programs & philosophies. I think it's best to learn to eyeball approximate proportions and don't worry too much about percentages. Your body is an organism, not a machine, so it can handle different proportions of fuel just as it can handle different stressors and tasks. It's a process to get to know your body, but it's very rewarding.

I go with a hunk of protein or eggs, fill the majority of the rest of the plate with fibrous veggies doused in coconut oil or butter, sometimes avocado, then add some starchier veggies like beets/carrots/sweet potato/squash, and sometimes garnish with high-quality cheese, nuts or berries.
