I do not "enjoy counting calories" --- but, I don't really consider my use of the Nutrition Tracker to be "counting calories".

I use the Tracker primarily as a planner - putting in a rough guideline of meals and snacks, which make my life easier and less stressful when it comes to shopping (it's easy to make a list when you know what you're going to need), and defrosting, and prepping, and basically being always in a position where a needed meal is ready to go. It is also immensely helpful in keeping an eye on nutrient intake, and has helped me fix diagnosed vitamin / mineral deficiencies and keep those levels up with diet alone.

So - for me, the "calories" are the least important part of the equation. I DO enjoy my less stressful and healthier lifestyle that includes planning meals and maintaining nutrient levels --- and the Nutrition Tracker is a tool which I happily use to achieve those.

I find tracking very satisfying. I particularly like the graphs of things like calorie differential over time and nutrients over time. It helps me to remember that one day will not make or break you, instead it is the whole process that matters.

If you have formed the habit of checking on every new diet that comes along, you will find that, mercifully, they all blur together, leaving you with only one definite piece of information: french-fried potatoes are out. ~~Jean Kerr

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~~Anais Nin

Life is too short for self-hatred and celery sticks. ~~Marilyn Wann
