Do you count your calories daily?
Should I calorie count my meals?
While I don’t advocate obsessive calorie counting, I do promote being aware of the quantity and quality of your food intake. I also highly encourage you to get into the habit of reading labels so you can control what goes into your body. Keeping a food journal is not to count calories but for you to see just how much food you are consuming daily. It also lets you view how much healthy food you are putting in your body. You can’t go wrong in the produce department when you are hungry. Try to pinpoint foods not on this list that you eat which are of calorie dense foods but have little nutritional value plus they won’t satiate you. It really will help you to see a list of smaller portion foods you can eat as snacks for an energy surge and it really prevents you not to overeat at meal times. Many of us are unaware just how much drinking alcoholic beverages can add to our weight issues, so it’s good to visualize our intake of this.
