I put in what I plan to eat first thing in the morning and then add and subtract as the day goes on. What I found is that if I write it down, I can usually go with the better choice or a comparable choice and stay within my caloric intake range.

I put in what I would like to eat for a meal then click on see full report further down on the nutrition page to see how it breaks down to carbs, protein, fat. Then I adjust my portions or choices accordingly.

I agree that tracking is a critical tool.

Adding veggies and fruits is always a good idea!

I am learning how many "extras" I eat every day and how much impact they have on my daily intake. I am learning that I could have a better balance between carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Because I tend to eat a lot of nuts and nut butters, I can easily exceed my fat allotment for the day. I am almost never even in the middle of the protein allotment and generally am high (if not over) on carbohydrates. For me, because I tend to struggle with satiety issues, it seems as though I would be better off if I could bump up the protein count and drop the carb count a bit. I also could pick up the numbers of veggies (and fruits) I eat as opposed to the grain category. I knew this anyway, but there is nothing like seeing it in black and white. In addition, it's a lot easier to decide exactly how I want to modify it if I can see the numbers as opposed to just concepualize the situation.
