hey Jess do you use calorie king? If not its worth a look at, not only is there low fat recipes you can use for ideas on what to have for lunches & dinners etc but you can also use to count your calories. It looks like the foods you're eating aren't too bad but maybe just too much of the same thing (carbs). I could be wrong but its worth a look on Calorie King. You enter the foods you're eating (it goes down to the detail of where you bought it & quantity) & then gives you a break down of fats, protein & carbs.

Might be an idea to help you stay on track, I know it has been working for me & thought it might help you too.

yes I have that book and I have looked though it but I find it annoying to have to count calories every time I eat, it is interesting, do you know how many calories you should eat a day to help u loose weight??? does it tell you in the book???

Hi, i don't have the time and patience to calorie count but use it as a guide. Sometimes just looking at how many calories are in something gives you a better idea of how much of what you can eat.

I LOVE calorie king...I find it so, so easy to help educate you - what calories are in what, etc. It's something to use for a few months until you get a gist of what you can and can't (well - what you shouldn't!) have.

I love it because if you feel like something naughty, you can try to incorprate it into your day without feeling guilty.

You put in your age, censored, height, etc and it tells you how many calories you should have.

http://www.calorieking.com

It's an online tool that calculates everything for you according to what foods/drinks you enter. It'll guide you towards your calorie goal and the portions of foods you should be eating like protein and carbohydrates. There's nothing wrong with a calorie counting book but the online version is there and super easy to use. A lot of the people on here like to use it and it's highly recommended :mrgreen:
