I don’t usually count calories, I usually guess my calorie intake and just concentrate on eating healthy. Yesterday, noticing that I had gained a few pounds, I decided to write down everything I ate and drank. I was shocked at the result. My total calorie intake yesterday was 3066 calories, and if I was asked how many calories I thought I’d eaten I would have said no more than 2000.
So if you find you’ve been gaining weight it could be that you have gradually increased your calorie intake without realising. Print out this chart (or create your own) and log your calories every day for a week; the results might surprise you.
