    Hi,

    I have just joined the forum, though this is my second time doing the Inch Loss Plan - in Jan and Feb I lost 9 pounds on the first month and then after my birthday I went crazy and put all the weight back on - well not all of it, but the 10 inches I had lost through exercising! :sigh:

    This time around I am deadly serious as in August I will be climing Mt Kinabalu and I dont want to fail!!!

    Anyways, if I wanted to eat something which isn't a suggested meal from the book how on earth do I go about counting up the calories??? :eek:

    grab your kitchen scales, weigh whatever it is your are going to be having to eat(remember the less than 5% fat rule)and calculate the calories that way!

    That's what I don't know how to do - where do you get the calories from in the first place? :)

    if you have a look on ebay, put 'nutri scales' into the search engine, they are kitchen scales that give you the nutrional content of most foods, may be worth a try? I only found these after looking at the RC kitchen scales that also do this, but are a lot more money to buy than this!
    Also, you can buy 'calorie books' in WHSmiths that give you the calorie count for lots of foods,

    what i did when i started was i got a note book and worked out the calories of my 'basic' foods(such as chicken breast, roast meats etc) and made note of what their calorie count was per 4 oz (or whatever weight may suit yourself) it makes life a bit easier.
    Have a section for meat, another for veggies, another for fruit etc etc
    Took a bit of time to do, but also saves time now!

    I already have the WW scales so am not going to cash out more until they die. I did buy a book on Amazon though with calories in it so we will see how that goes :)

    Day 5 today and all is going well!
