I've started following a diet plan from an italian nutritionist that is 1450 calories. Just for kicks I plugged what I ate into the spark tracker and it says 890 calories! Why? Because I couldn't eat all the bread she gave me. The italian diet is huge on carbs and after so many years of low-carb I couldn't do the 50% carb she recommends.
Another thing, the calories are different. I mean a 200 gr potato is either 180 calories on SP or 200 on an italian calorie website. Who do I trust? And how do we know the truth?
I mean, they tell us a 200 gram potato is x calories and we have to believe them because we're not in the lab, we're not the scientists. But what if they are wrong?
So far I have not lost any weight through tracking on the SP website. Maybe I'll try the italian one and see.
