Calorie Counter
Lose Weight by Tracking YOUR Calories

.

A Calorie Counter is a way for you to count your daily caloric intake. With a good Calorie Counter you can get calories, carbs, fiber, protein & nutrition values of thousands of foods and find out the nutritional values for the exact portion size that you eat.

When you're dieting, the thing that can really wreck a healthy eating plan is that awful feeling that comes over you to just grab a huge bag of potato chips and polish it off while watching your favorite sit-com. We've all been there before!

There are things you can do to help yourself avoid the ugly urge to snack uncontrollably.

Eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Plan to have healthy snacks throughout the day. Do not skip meals or planned snacks. Skipping nutritious foods will make you feel uncontrollably hungry!

If you can, avoid purchasing any unhealthy snacks. There are so many "good-for-you" snacks on the market today, there is really no reason why you should have a cupboard full of ring-dings and cheesecurls.

Start learning to read the back of the packages of foods - look at the fat content - if it says that the fat content is over 5% per serving - look for a different snack.

Here's a list of healthy snacks that are low in fat content, but still high in satisfaction:

Pretzels (watch the sodium content, though)
Graham crackers
Any type of low fat crackers
Low fat cookies
Popcorn without butter (buy butter flavored salt)
A cup of fruit with non-fat cool whip and honey
Fat free pudding
A stick of sugar-free chewing gum
A couple pieces of licorice
Raw veggies with non-fat salad dressing for dip

Don't watch to much TV, it encourages snacking - most of the commercials are about food.

When you're finished with a meal or a planned snack, brush and floss your teeth - this will help you stay away from food for about an hour.
