Track Your Calories

Tracking calories isn't necessary but if you really want to change your body and ensure you are doing everything to reach your goal, I highly suggest you track your calories daily. 

My top 3 calorie trackers:

1 - Cargill's Gym App
2 - Fat Secret
3 - My Fitness Pal

Protein

After calories protein is the next important aspect of your diet. Whether your goal is to lose fat, gain muscle or just be fitter, protein plays a key role in this. Protein is a macro nutrient that repairs muscle, prevents muscle breakdown and keeps you fuller for longer. You need protein to recover from exercise for performance (getting fitter), rebuild muscles used in exercise (gain muscle) and maintain muscle when calories are low (fat loss).
You should aim for 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight or 30% of your daily calorie intake as a minimum requirement.
