I find that it is SO easy to count the same foods and wind up with wildly different calorie counts! How many calories in a slice of cheese pizza? One answer is 120; another is 450!
On the same day, I realize, I could reasonably count myself as 50 calories UNDER my goal or hundreds of calories OVER my goal! The only way to be absolutely sure of calories is to eat only the plainest food in precise quantities -- or, alternatively, to eat only packaged, pre-cooked foods with nutritional labels. Either way... yuck!
Could this be why I don't drop the pounds??
