Does EVERY calorie count?

Sunday, August 04, 2013

Isn't it awful that the little taste of whatever we are cooking on the stove counts? I mean we had to taste it to make sure the recipe came out good. Right? Honestly though how DO you keep track of all those calories on the tracker? I ask you? So what we are saying is we have to own that bite, too? We know. That may be why we are not losing. You think?

You mean we can't finish what is on our husbands' plates after dinner? I mean we were raised not to waste food. In America we were told children were starving we must clean our plates. We have to eat that last little bit off his plate. We measured what was on our plates. That's what counts right?

Are we keeping track of our calories for our health or vanity?

    I laughed and laughed as I red this.... yes, those count too... I have been so frustrated at times, I literally have a pebble Thai suck on when I m making Cookies for DH so I will not put cookie dough in my mouth!

    It is amazing how those little "tastes" can add up! I would much rather be healthy, tha worry about cleaning the plate. With portion control that isn't a problem! Only put one portion on your plate and you eat the right amount! What is on someone else's plate is their problem not yours! emoticon emoticon

  It is always hard to see food go to waste. I've learned to cook without tasting....not easy, but it can be done. Good luck!
