    Yeah, never really knew it was necessary until a few months ago, you guys use an actual log book, or just any type of composition book.

    I use a notebook for now. I'm going to try to figure out how to build a spreadsheet and follow that though. that way all i have to do is plug in numbers.

    Absolutely do this. Well I stick with it for about 8-10 weeks give myself 1-2 weeks going off estimates just for a little vacation. Then jump back to it.

    It made such drastic differences going from guessing daily macros to knowing exactly what I was eating. Let alone the ability to make small calculated changes.

    Weights, yes. Food, no. After this long and knowing how much I need given a certain training volume, I can go by instinct on how much I need to fuel my sessions. However, I did log my food for about 6 months when I was still green and it is the reason that I can pretty accurately estimate how many kcals I've had for the day.

  6. Good stuff --

    I will be investigating a new program that makes tracking foods and training very easy and perfect for meeting target goals.

    Will customize it to the foods and macros I personally recommend for desired goals.

    Anything to make dietary and training tracking quicker easier and better sounds great.

  8. I voted for the second option. I am after strength. At times I need to up my cals to a level where I get a little fat looking. So be it. I dont give a crap about abs. I just want to be as strong as I can be.

  9. My goals are all strength or performace based. As long as I look decent naked, bodyfat and stuff don't matter much to me. My wife actually likes a little tummy fat lol.

    Having said that, as long as my weights keep going up in the gym over the fall/winter, I should be on track to do a recomp or cut at the end of the winter into spring (depends on my weght at that time). It would be my first real cut.

    Lucky - wish my Wife "liked tummy fat" lol....She gets angry when I am in off-season and I am a bloated mess --- still have abs etc... but the water in my face is a turn-off (which I understand) as I hate bloat face too.....but its part of the game!

    Exactly -- I am in the process of finding and customizing the easiest to use system.

    Big difference, I'm just a normal guy looking to be stronger and in shape. My athletic days are behind me.
