as mentioned, putting it in your tracker will help determine what percentage of your calories you have left for dinner.

Eating within your range is good (and the range is pretty flexible, by about 300 calories, right?). So, if you're hungrier one day, over another, especially when exercising strenuously, then eat. Just make good choices (the salad, apple, etc., while good choices, probably need some protein/fat added (peanut or some nut butter on the apple for instance)

Did you put the calories in the tracker? Are you still within range? If so - don't stress. Some days are more hungry than others - that's why there is a range. If you are already over the range, try to go lighter for dinner, but do eat in balance.

What about a light tomato soup and a slice of toast and low fat butter or margarine, perfect!

I had a pizza i made on a white pita bread, some tomatoes, soy free dairy free cheese. Then two peices of seaweed snacks. then apple chips. then one dried sausage (dried like beef jerky), then 4 crackers.
Is this alot of calories? I'm working out later. Will I lose or maintain?
I don't know what to do for dinner after I work out. Salad? apple? or just one of those sausage sticks (im not much for salads and apples wont fill me.) the sausage sticks are 110 calories each.
Thank you!
