If you follow the basic guidelines, eat clean, whole foods and cheat infrequently, you will definitely start to see results. But at a certain point, you may decide it's time to take it to the next level.
Food-tracking seems like too much hard work to most people, so I keep it as simple as possible. I can introduce you to food-tracking apps and show you how to use them. Starting with small goals, such as recording all the protein eaten in a day, then working up to tracking calories and macros. You'll be able to see where you might be falling short or consuming too much.
