Don't over analyze your results

You've heard me say in previous posts that I 100% believe you should be tracking your daily nutrition and exercise, but I do believe there comes a point where you can have too much information to comprehend. When you get to that point I think many people become overwhelmed and just give up… I never want you to reach that point and here’s how you can make sure that doesn’t happen.

Instead of tracking your weight, BMI, body fat, hydration levels, circumference measurements, and any other of the dozens and dozens of online tracking methods just choose 2 or 3. After you’ve chosen your 2 or 3 methods you can then simplify the process even further.

Here's how using my top 3 methods:
1. Only weigh in twice a week
2. Only check your body fat every 4 weeks
3. Only take measure measurements every 4 weeks (same day as body fat analyses)

Truthfully, there's no reason to weigh in more than 2x a week and since body fat percentages change at a slower rate it’s only necessary to test them once a month.
