I make it easiest by estimating. I took two nutrition courses in college and later memorized the amount of calories in most common foods I often consume. I make a list daily of what I eat and guesstimate the calories. With the exception of casseroles, I normally am not too far off. After doing this for 30 years, I have a pretty good idea of my food consumption. It was very tedious at first.
The computer age has made it vastly simpler, but it still takes time to track daily. The more I track my food, the less I eat and the healthier I become. Tracking food is important, and it is a hassle.
With experience and taking some time daily, you'll get more accustomed to it.
Remembering why you are doing it makes it easier to take the time to do it.
