AKA, "well THAT'S different....
I've been saving the little pie charts from my daily reports and using them to tweak my eating. If I can't figure out what calories I need, I'm going to work towards giving it the percentages of carbs, protein and fats it requires. Yesterday, I tracked everything including the mini pig-out on Werther's chocolates that I had while writing an email to my ex-husband. (*mental note*, I'm an angry eater) Anyway, this morning I ran the report and got this breakdown of my 2,490 calories:
Admittedly, I know I overdid it on the chocolate but, other than those, I think I ate fairly reasonable so I was curious to find out what was up. Looking over the report, I realized that instead of entering in 2.5 for the amount of fat in one little chocolate (I enter all my own foods unless it's generic stuff), I typed in 25. Times seven... I've never seen my percentage for "fat" get that high. Here's the revised report/chart:
I'd say, despite the crazy amount of calories I consumed, this is much, MUCH better. Also, I no longer feel the need to throw away the remainder of the box of chocolates.
