Ideally, you should be eating:
5-10% of calories from carbs (net carbs). Typically, 20-30 grams of net carbs is recommended to start with.
15-30% of calories from protein and
60-75% of calories from fat. If y

Food Scale – I just bought one after 3 weeks it makes things more accurate to track I bought mine at Costco because it was on sale for $15.00
Activity Tracker: like Fitbit I don’t wear jewelry not even my wedding ring so wearing a fitbit is off the table for me so my husband bought me a tracker I could clip to my shoe I lost it after 2 weeks . I don’t always carry my phone in my pocket so tracker on the phone isn’t accurate still looking for a work around.
