query on calorie value

Postby sansarella » Fri Apr 16, 2010 10:47 pm

I dont really have a plan in mind, to keep an eye on cals. CK is going to paid site and I pay enough for internet, so I wont be keeping track of calories there anymore.
Would anybody steer me in a direction. I dont really want to go scouring through a calorie counter book.
Anyone know of another calorie foods site for free :D

Thankyou in advance for your help

In the past if it were not for CK. I wouldnt have bothered doing cal value on food. They made it easy.

Are points like in WW and easier option?
I dont know which way to go. I dont have time to study up on cal value. I need it in front of me, if I'm going to do it.

Most foods have their calories/KJ's on the packaging. Maybe you could write down your favourites and then you would just have to look at the packets for new foods. WW is points based on calories and fat content so you basically have to know them anyway. I am dissapointed about CK going to fee based as I use it alot to work out my points.
Good LUck
Need to get motivated.

I too counted Kj's for my weight loss. I think the only way you can successfully lose weight by eating less than you need.
I used the nutritional info on the back of food labels, comparing the per 100gr if there was more than one choice etc. Also get a good set of kitchen scales and just weigh EVERYTHING! I was quite surprised by the serving sized on packets as they were so small. I would eat at least double if not triple the amount before I got my kitchen scales.
I kept a food diary in Microsoft excel and it added up all my Kj's in a day.
Good luck :)
