Keeping a food log - is this the place in the forum to do it?

Hello fellow CrossFitters!

I'd like to keep a detailed food/nutrition log to get some feedback from all of you who are more knowledgeable/experienced than I am.

Would this be the right place in the forum to do it? I kept a workout log in the workout log section for a while, but I didn't get any feedback/response.

I'm trying to get into the Zone diet. I've read the book and started to dabble with the foods, but I'm stuck on eating lots of bread and pasta. I try and eat whole wheat, and then convince myself I've done it right, but I'd love to try and get a bit more strict with what I eat - and start getting almost all my carbs from fruits and veggies.

I could sure use the help and the accountability! Thanks.

Brian, I'm not sure if the nutritioun section is the best place for that. I think the workout log would be better with occasional questions referring to it on the nutrition section. I would also recommend logging everything in fitday.com and making your profile public. many people here have a link to their fitday log on their signature.

You can start a new thread in the log section if you don't want the food mixing with the WODs.

Agreed with the above advice.

Re: Keeping a food log - is this the place in the forum to do it?

I recently found fitday.com w/f/s and it has helped me tremendously with my diet. In just over a week, I have really been able to see exactly what I am putting in my body and made a lot of adjustments that I didn't think about. It also has an activity section that you can add for calorie burning, as well as a journal section (where I put how much sleep I got and what I did for crossfit that day). The nutrition part is pretty easy because they have many preloaded foods, but you can make custom foods, and once they are in there, you just add them to your day.

The site is free, but I think you can download it and pay for it.

fitday is awesome. I just wish they would lengthen the login timout. Since the redesign went online I have to login 10 times a day. I sent them a comment about it, I hope it helps.

Thanks for the advice! I do use FitDay, actually. I've tried to keep a food log pretty consistently for a while now.

I've used several things in the past - FitDay, my own spreadsheet, etc. FitDay has been the easiest by far.

I think I'll start up a new log in the workout log section, and if I need advice from time to time with my diet, I'll just post up a sample day here in this forum, but not a daily log.
