Yes tracking for a while does give you an insight to your macros, then you can work by eye on how much protein in your portion sizes.Glad it's working for you. II've rewatched a few videos and am starting to thiink I should track protein for a week or so to learn more about how much protein is in the meats, eggs etc that I eat so I can get a feel for the level of protein suitable for me and then go back to being intuitive and not tracking.
What is the fast track 12 weeks @ 800 ? Is it vlcd or food? Do they use or recommend a commercial tracker app? If so I might use that for my protein tracking week.
I think it is vlcd meal replacement.. i did it with food earlier this year with the fast 800, so there is an option, but from what i understand they are starting from a point of helping to break habits using vlcd meal replacements to remake them into healthier eating habits. I don't know how your area runs their programme but here's some info in the one in my area, should be pretty similar. They do have a tracker but its for the programme, i used to use sparkpeople to track mine but now they gone i've switched to fatsecret which is pretty good.
