[1] Footnote about tracking methods:

Eric Helms and I also talked at length about ways to implement the fundamental principles, and
what I walked away with were essentially two approaches you can take:

1. The first would be a tracking-based approach where you use an app to track the calories and macros in the foods you’re eating. Here are a few apps I recommend (not sponsored):

- MyFitnessPal:​
- FitGenie:​
- Carbon Diet Coach:​

Generally, I recommend this approach more for beginners who might not be able to easily estimate the nutritional content of the foods they're eating.

2. A second option would be a more auto-regulated approach, where, if you already have a reasonably high nutritional competence, you can use techniques like mindful eating (paying attention and eating more slowly rather than being distracted), appetite monitoring (staying in the mid-zone of a 1-10 satiety scale – not being too hungry or too full), increasing a daily step count (which will help regulate satiety better) and choosing satiating foods (lots of fruits and vegetables with your meals and drink plenty of water). These techniques can help you establish a caloric deficit without having to track everything you eat.
