MealLogger is a good app for tracking. All you do really is take a picture of your food before you eat it and it keeps a daily journal. I believe that you can use it to count calories, but you definitely can just use it to log pictures. It's fee on the iPhone, not sure about Android.

I just had a peek at your SparkPage - if the photos of you are current, it doesn't really look like you need to be losing weight, and as you seem to have difficulty with tracking or even writing down what you have eaten, you may find that down-sizing your dinner place and not coming back for seconds is a great place to start. Remember the plate should be 1/4 lean protein, 1/4 carbs such as Potato, Brown Rice, Quinoa, Whole Grain Pasta etc., and the rest a myriad of colour of veges.

Try to minimize any processed foods, and eat lean protein with each meal. Ensure that you get at least 5 servings of fruit/veges in your day, and stay well hydrated - water is calorie free.

In other words,

Mindful eating
Portion Control
and Wise choice of food MOST of the time.

Remember, if you drink alcohol, limit that - it is high in calories but does nothing nutritionally.

Good luck,
Kris

I don't ;like using Sparkpeople calorie counter and placing my food in there because it's tedious and I don't count calories. However, I did download a food diary and I log in my food. From the middle to the end of the week, I check my log in and I always make suggestions on what more I should eat and what less I should eat. Now, that is becoming tedious as well and I don't like my diet or food plan because it's just not enjoyable so how can I enjoy my meal without having to worry about what I'm intaking more of and what I'm intaking less of?
