How to Count Calories

Most people find that counting calories is a bit tedious. However, counting calories is a crucially important step to achieving weight loss. It is the only way to intellectually make small changes to get you where you need to be.

The good news is that it isn't tedious forever. The beginning of any diet plan should begin with a food journal that strictly counts calories. In the beginning, it will be confusing and hard. You will need to cut things up and measure them. It will also be helpful to have a dietary scale. You will need to read labels and continually estimate the calories of the foods.

There are weight programs like Weight Watchers that make calorie counting easier. In fact, the main thing Weight Watchers does is to help you count calories. The only difference is that they assign a point value system for foods. Almost every diet plan out there is simply a way to help you count calories easier. Like anything else, you need to know how to do it yourself so that you can achieve independence and make better choices when “Jenny Craig” isn't there to hold your hand.

There are also web sites like http://www.caloriescount.com and http://www.dwlz.com/ that help you to count your calories by offering the caloric information in foods. It makes it more convenient than finding the package.

Good News for Calorie Counting

Most of us tend to eat the same things over and over. The good news is that you will eventually get really good at estimating calories. Over time, counting calories will be quite easy. You will eventually get into a healthy routine and lose the weight that you need to. Then, you will no longer need to count calories unless you start to gain weight again. You will know if you are following healthy eating habits or going crazy.

Weighing In

You should definitely weigh yourself weekly to see if you are gaining or losing. Many people spiral out of control and don't realize it until they have gained a hundred pounds or so. Weight comes on slowly and people are great at deluding themselves about their weight. A lot of obese people say that a picture just woke them up. They didn't even realize how obese they were. The scale is there to inject a bit of reality. You might also take a weekly picture to give you that reality dose. Weighing yourself weekly, on a scale, is one of the ways to ultimately safeguard your weight loss. Don't obsess about the scale,but make yourself aware of trends.
