I seem to be having an issue when it comes to tracking food. I have gotten much better at tracking my food...that is not the problem. The problem is hitting my suggested intake of calories, fat, carbs, and protein. I am so focused on staying in my calorie range that I'm not even getting the suggested amount of calories!Today, I am about 400 calories short of my lowest number of suggested calories. It's not that I'm not eating..because I am. I eat when I am hungry. I am not eating out of boredom as I once did. But since I'm so focused on low calorie, healthy foods...I'm not getting the needed calories. Tack on the fact that I'm burning more calories than suggested each week and it equals a big problem. I could go grab an ice cream or something and reach my calories, but I really am trying to limit my ice cream intake (it's my favorite food!). Also, getting just the right amount of fat, carbs and protein has proved to be a huge challenge. How do you make sure you hit your suggested calories ect? I could def. use some help here.
