@sparklerunner:  This used to happen to me when I used the Lose It app. I would enter what I was planning on eating and then it left me like 300 calories for supper so I’d have to be like “Damnit, nope.” and change it. It was a real shock to me when I started counting calories.

when I am actually trying hard to be good, I will plan out all my food intake the day before and then log it into MFP. then I know there won’t be any huge surprises!

lol it’s crazy once you get familiar with calories for specific items. some healthy fast food places actually have items that are so bad for you.

@highschoolhoneys:  +1

I would look at everything I had in the house, type out all of my meals and then see how many leftover calories I could eat for snacks.

@sparklerunner:  That is exactly what MFP is for…it helps us zero in on what exactly we are eating.

I would also look into clean eating. I am doing a clean eating challenge with my trainer and you would be surprised the amount of food you CAN eat throughout the day if you cut out all the unnecessary fats etc. Clean eating is similar to paleo but you can eat whole wheat bread/tortillas/ brown rice etc. I used to think I couldn’t live without ranch dressing and mayo but three weeks down and I don’t miss it at all.

@sparklerunner:  There’s a pretty famous nutirionist that said “I can’t tell the difference between a 500 calorie meal and an 800 calorie meal without measuring it.”

It’s SO easy to not realize how calorie-heavy some foods are!
