From the package, if I ever eat packaged food. I am trying to eat clean, mostly, so I just use the spark people database or another database on fitnessjournal.org. If you look at your yogurt, due to the flavors added one can be 140 calories (strawberry) and another is 150 (keylime). So yes different products will have different calorie counts due to the varying ingredients.

Goals:
Decrease Body Fat percentage. I will do this by eating clean and cardio cardio cardio, I must not forget strength training, my goal is to strength train 4 days a week!

I have a question. I'm trying really hard to track my food better - I think that being super careful will help me with this plateau that I'm stuck on.

But I have a concern about how many calories I'm actually eating....it seems that there is a huge disparity between calorie counts from different books and packagers.

I know that here on SP, some of the foods listed have a different count than when I look them up. I athe a book called "the complete book of food counts", and I go to calorieking.com. But it's packaged foods that seem to differ - my organic ready to eat vegetables, frozen fruits and vegetables, breads especially. It seems that the same size portion of a multi grain bread can have 3 different calorie counts from three different makers!

So, where is everyone getting their nutritional info from?
