Postby grugwashere » Mon Dec 11, 2006 6:21 pm

I reckon just count the kJs... that's what matters in the end - the difference between kJs used and burnt. If you eat less fat though you will be able to eat more food for the same number of kJs - a definite advantage :wink:

You need to watch your fat intake as well. I have found that I can eat slightly over the calories I am meant to eat but totally overload on the fat. Remember that the sugar turns to fat. So you do need to watch both. Go for the lower fat options when you have the choice. I am blowing out on the fat content nearly everyday sometimes more than doubling it. Yesterday I nearly tripled it! And I didn't think I had done all that bad yesterday!!!

Keep Smiling!!!
