Your question caught my attention because I tossed my cookies after dinner last night - I guess it just didn't agree with me. I counted it on my tracker and moved on. There is no way I am giving myself a positive credit for puking. That seems like bad precedent in this healthy lifestyle.

Thanks Coach Nancy. Thanks also Courtie! Good points.

And LongRun, I apologize also if I come off as defensive. Thanks for the warning.

So is your question, do you count them, even though you threw up the food? i think that it would be impossible to determine how many calories you absorbed and how many came back up...i would just log the exercise and your food and call it a day. its just one day. if you get hungry later b/c you threw up some food, eat a light or healthy snack. Just don't worry too much about what calories you lost from throwing up and just try not to make that mistake again. Since it is only one day, in a course of your life, don't worry about it.

I apologize. My intent was not to criticize but to warn you of a potentially life threatening situation.

Tara,

I would log it in your nutrition tracker and make a note in your notes section on your nutrition tracker page as to what happened.

I hope you are feeling better.

Nancy

It was one drink and also an unplanned sequence of events.

I'm really not looking for criticism as to the sequence of events that led up to this occurrence.

Again, restating that all I was looking for was help on the CALORIE COUNTING part of things.

I would highly suggest not drinking before you workout. Alcohol changes the way that the body distributes blood glucose and can cause you to become hypoglycemic, the results of which are very dangerous.

Well, right, I mean, as I pointed out.. I have never had this issue before, and I normally do not have such hectic nights. Not too worried about how to keep it from happening again because I understand how to avoid it.

I was just curious about how to accurately count it.

I would just say put the food into your tracker and know that you can't workout after eating that large of a meal. I suggest always working out before eating, that way your body is in high gear to burn off calories.

I ordered the grilled chicken buffalitos from Buffalo Wild Wings, ate both buffalitos and the chips and salsa that came with it. I also drank a rum and diet with my meal.

I dunno, not THAT crazy I guess? I don't normally have this issue, just a crazy day. I just don't know if I count the calories from the dinner or not?

I don't know if you can. Is there a way to exercise earlier??

How large of dinner are we talking here.

I exercised too soon after eating and ended up vomiting (45 minutes after my rather large dinner). How do I count those calories?
