    Talking First day - never calorie counted before

    Hi all, i am 100% new to calorie counting!! I have started today and am using MFP

    Any advice or tips?!

    My daily allowance is 1506 calories to lose a pound a week.

    Do you just look at calories or do you look at fat etc aswell or does couting the calories take care of that??

    Thanks xXx

    Hi there, I mainly look at the calories, as i can easily over eat on low sugar or low fat food, so I need the control of the calorie amount. X

    I use MFP too and only look at my daily overall calories - you can always manually change your fat, protein, carb ratios in the settings if you find you prefer to eat more protein etc. I really love using the app - I usually put what I plan on eating in advance and see if it all fits in - it's saved me many a time from grabbing at choccy digestives when I'm in the kitchen ... you tend to enjoy them less when you have to log them!

    I use a pen and paper I have a small book in which I have tabled the calorie value of the foods I eat in 100gm values as well as the usual portion I eat and I weigh everything I eat so no guess work involved. May seem a bit over the top but it worked for me. I did SW but found my portions of free food were too large and I did gain weight.
    So for example when I have breakfast I usually have the same so know my cals for that then write it in my diary and take it away from my daily total I allow myself.
    I write down everything I eat even if it is only 5 grapes. When I eat something new I write it in my book for next time so I can just look it up.
    I did use MFP but would forget to put things in it and found my written diary is the best way for me - I also didn't like the way MFP adds the calories for exercise to my daily total.
    I just count calories as I am veggie and cook from scratch so know what is in my food.




    Diary -

    I don't have a diary on here, I just log it on MFP. My username's on my profile and my diary's open if you fancy a critique! I'll try to find yours when I'm back on the laptop tomorrow - I've never succeeded in maintaining in a healthy way so may sneak a peek at yours to see what a successful maintainer eats ... yes that's you
