Calorie Counting Thursdays!!!!

Hello All!

Today is a great day. I have some handy calorie counting tips that I want to share with you. Staying in shape, and/or loosing weight is challenging and a science. I want my tips to help you reach whatever goal your working towards.
Today’s Tip is:
Memorize Calories for the common foods you eat.
If you usually eat oatmeal for breakfast with a cup of coffee, two slices of toast and 2 teaspoons of butter you should figure out how many calories are in each foods that you eat on a daily bases. As you start to memorize the number of calories in your favorite foods, calorie counting gets easier and starts to become second nature. Calories counting is super hard and confusing but if you start to learning you’re the calorie count for your everyday foods, calorie counting will get easier and start to take less time.
