Here are some additional resources to expand your Gruve experience and help you keep Gruving towards your health goal.
One of the best ways to keep Gruving is to share your results in a private group on facebook with your closest friends and family who can Gruve with you and help keep up the motivation to keep on track to lose weight and create an environment of trusted mutual support . They know who you are and can provide the encouragement and extra motivation when you need it.
According to the results of an August 2008 study in the American Journal of of Preventative Medicine, keeping a food diary (writing down everything you eat and drink) creates personal accountability and increases awareness of where extra calories come from. Those that kept records for 6 days per week lost about twice the amount of weight as those who kept records a day or less per week for six months in the study.
So keep a daily food journal to be accountable and to be aware of meeting the daily calorie intake recommended in your Gruve Online Personalized N.E.A.T. plan.
One popular FREE calorie tracking site is MyFitnessPal. MyFitnessPal’s has the world’s largest food nutrition and calorie database (over 1 million foods) and has free mobile apps for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows. Gruve now shows food calorie data from MyFitness Pal!
