Counting Calories

Monday, March 26, 2012

Hi everyone! Hope your week is starting off great! I have decided to count calories....for real this time, with another SP buddy!

I'm expecting it to work this time since we will be holding each other accountable. If anyone else wants to jump in and do it with us that would be awesome! We weigh in on Saturdays but of course you could weigh in whenever is best for you!

Make it a great week and get outside to enjoy the nice weather if you can!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

If anyone has tips for counting calories I'd love to hear them! Any way to make it easier? lol

    Use the nutritional tracker on SP- really easy if you have a smart phone with the app.
    - Save anything you'd eat more than once as a Favorite (easier to find)
    - Save typical meals that you make as a Group (a favorite smoothie recipe, your cereal plus milk, a typical sandwich, etc)

    Eat in, not out. If you do eat out:
    - Look up restaurant nutritional menus BEFORE you go if you are going out (pick your meal and stick to it)
    - Get used to saying NO BUTTER as a rule (even if you can't imagine why they'd add butter)
    - Drink lots of water. I carry a nice 32 oz refillable water bottle everywhere. after a week or two its easy.

    -When you save leftovers put them in ONE-Serving size containers (I crockpot, so I have lots of pre-made 1-serving size options in the fridge and freezer).

    The more you stick to the habit (try for 21 days straight) the easier it will be to keep it up.

    Good luck!

    The one thing I did was to make my own combinations (or food groupings) that I use regularly, It sure makes counting so much easier. Also, I measure and weigh all the time.
