Default Counting calories as points

(Not WW)..
I like counting calories because it keeps me on track, but I hate logging the food I eat all the time in the app I have.
So now I have started counting points . 100 cals ~ 1 point.
Then I add it up mentally through the day as I eat. My goal is 1400 calories so 14 points.

So breakfast with 2 eggs and milk is 2+1 = 3 points
Lunch could be a medium portion of pasta = 4 points , one tsp pesto sauce = 1 pt
1 fruit at 4 pm = 1 point
So at this point, I know I have 5 points left for dinner and I stick to it.

I find this works a lot better for me than logging(i get lazy, dont log, forget etc..)

exmaples:
1 slice bread = 1pt
1 tbsp oil = 1 pt
1 cornetto icecream = 3 pts
1 slice cheese = 1 pt
1 cup cooked chickpeas = 3 pts
10 almonds = 1 pt

I dont worry about the exact calories, but points give me the will power to stick to the big picture, and stops me from binging.
