Tracking: If you're tracking calories and macros for body fat % loss, start with 10x your body weight on caloric intake. Example would be a man who weighs 200lbs starts with 2,000 calories. For macros, try 20% protein, 25% fat, 55% carbohydrates. Remember we are recommending complex, low GI carbs. And remember that carbs are energy you'll need for your active, adventure lifestyle.
But Remember: If you're eating real food, you don't have to track this stuff as closely as "the standard American dieter." i.e. someone trying to find ways to lose weight while still eating processed crap. Even if it's a protein bar or something that claims to be healthy, if it's got 27 ingredients + added sugar, it's crap. If you stir clear of that stuff, and eat real food, you won't need to pay as much attention to the stats.
