Diet Analysis summary

During the process of the analysis I got into the habit of measuring the amount of food I eat now and also reading the amount of calories etc… It was very interesting to me. At first I was a bit confused as what to do but then I understood shortly after.

I tried to stay away from salty foods and overly sweet foods to see what my totals would come out to. It felt a little weird having to write down what I ate
