** Need Some Help on my foods...**
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
I always said I need to work on my portion control. But tell you the truth. I really don't know yet, What portion to work with, how much portion to control with. For me to follow my healthy foods diet and exercise plan, and become healthy and fit.
I realized, I need to learn more about " THE FOOD " it self. Like how many calorie my favorite veggie and fruits smoothie has, or mixed bean soup with squash and chorizo, and Mangu (plantain) with garlic and green onion. I have no idea how much calorie I am consuming, when I eating those of my favorite food. Actually, don't knows most of foods. How people determine their calorie if you cook your own foods? It's easy if you follow the recipe maybe. They already indicated how much calorie there is. But how about home made stuff? How do you know how much is that of calories the meals you are making?
I really would like to have better relationship with foods. If I understands better, I can have more choice or have better choice. And how much to eat. I often hear " you should eat at least 5 or 6 serving of veggies and fruits." How much is the 5 serving? How do you determined 1 serving size.? What is a complex carbs vs. simple carbs? I don't know so many things about foods and there are so many to learn about. I need some little bit of help here for lead me to right directions on my foods journey. I have started to track my foods here on SP. The foods tracker is very helpful. But there are so many foods its not listed there, and I have no idea how to log in some of the foods I eat. Most of the time I log the foods closed to it. But sometime, it is very frustrating and make me want to give up and quite tracking.
I would like to know, how people learned about foods, calorie and tracking?
Is there any suggestion or books teaches me about foods and calories?
Any good web site maybe I can go to?
