I'm just looking for some advice right now. I've decided to lower my carb intake to lose weight because I know carbs and my love for processed, packaged sugar is what has gotten me to where I am today!!
Anyway, so I started using my fitness pal and I do fine during breakfast and lunch, counting calories, portioning out sizes, etc etc, but whenever I go to the store, I always end up picking up something little to eat! I always feel like crap after it, you'd think I would remember this feeling and avoid buying it but a week later I find myself doing the same thing. It's so annoying because I know I am the only one that can control what I eat, but sometimes it just feels impossible. Does anyone else out there do this?
My food diary looks something like this
Breakfast--fresh fruit, some milk
lunch- large salad
Dinner-meat and steamed vegetables
I am putting croutons in my salad, it adds about 30 cals so I figured it's not too bad, but should I just get rid of them?
I was also wondering, is losing weight basically calories in calories out? Because sometimes on my fitness pal, even though I don't reach my calorie limit, I've eaten too much sugar, carbs, and sodium. Should I be limiting those parts as well? Sorry if that sounds confusing.
I'm open to any advice you guys have!
