Counting Calories The Easy Way
Since I have been training for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon, a friend of mine suggested I visit http://caloriecount.about.com/ to help me keep up with how many calories I am taking in versus how many calories I am burning.
Each day I fill in a food and an activity log and then I can see how many calories I consumed and how many I burned for that day. This site has lots of options for foods and activities, so I am able to be specific when filling in my logs. It also gives me a nutrient report to let me know what nutrients/vitamins I am getting too much or not enough of (I found this section very enlightening). Now that I am learning how many calories are in certain foods and how much activity it takes to burn those calories, I find myself thinking twice about eating that piece of cake (or at least eating that second piece of cake).
