I have to agree with Elvensong. I know the calorie-counter is used by many fellow Sparkers, but I generally advocate correct weight and caloric intake for an individual, and then use the formula- [-calories+exercise=weight loss]
I also have a personal aversion to weighing and tracking food. I told myself a long time ago that I would never do that again. So far, the weight is coming off and I have made many other healthy choices,
i just tried to weigh one...........it is about the size of a small apple........hope this helps...........lita
“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
Sounds VERY yummy! However when it comes to portions and sizes of various food items I am one of the WORST people to ask. Although I buck the SP recommendations on this, I have a personal aversion to tracking food and weighing/measuring portions. I know that this is there as a strategy for me to use if I feel I need to, but thus far I've been able to accomplish a lot just following the intuition I've honed through years of trial & error.
I know we have MANY folks out there who are far more conscious of this sort of thing though and I'd wager someone will come along with some tips on this!
