I really dont know how people do it. I tried calorie counting a few times before by eating smartones instant meals, but only because the amount of calories are on the box itself. And I really hate not eating fresh food. I know Subway and other restaurants offer calorie values on some of their items, but MOST restaurants will not tell you the amount of calories an item offers directly on the menu or even on websites. I know calorie counting is very effective when it comes to weight loss, but can you really make sure youre taking in around 1500 calories per day for weight loss other than eating boxed foods and Subway and calorie counting through weight watchers? How do you calorie count?
