    I was just going with the assumption that if i tracked calories then i'd be ok. I did think if something is loaded with suger/fat/junk then that would increase the calories.
    But this morning a friend said i needed to track cals/fat/sat fat/carbs/protein because some things are low in cal but high in everything else. Is she right, should i track everything?

    Thanks for the link, thats a pretty cool site, had most of the stuff i've eaten today too although they're a few calories off on most things. Food focus says to have 1500cals and an app on my ipod said 1700, think i should just split the difference and go for 1600?

    To be honest I've only ever tracked calories :) if you count everything else it gets too faffy and you get frustrated with it, better to keep things simple :)

    I think it's pretty much rule of thumb that if something's rediculously high in calories that it's going to be high in sugar/fat/salt/carbs etc... And if you're counting calories you tend to pick the things that are low in calories that you can get a lot of for your calories, i.e. vegetables, fruit, lean meats etc etc :)

    I wouldn't worry about the rest :)

    I only track the cals, but I make sure it isn't really high in sat fat or sugars and salt before... don't officially count it though
