Nope. Anything I eat, is counted, because everything has calories. Even things that are good for you need to be noted. For instance, and apple has between 80 and 100 calories. A medium banana has about 108. Not a lot, but added up it can be. If you allocate yourself 1700 cal per day, then eat an apple, you're exceeding your amount. My coffee creamer is 10 cal per tsp, and I drink several cups a day with creamer. Each one is noted, no exceptions, because that quickly adds up to 50 or so.
UnCafe, do you know what your caloric intake should be, according to your basal metabolic rate and all the requisite calculations, etc? Until I found out what mine was, I was seriously underestimating what my daily cal intake should be. Mine is about 1700, and there I was starving myself trying to keep it around 1200. Most days I fall between 1500 and 1600. You may need more calories than you are alloting yourself. I went crazy with hunger everyday, and couldn't sleep, until I found out where I ought to be in reality. My hardest task was spreading them out through the day so I wouldn't be starving at night. I'm still working onthat one.
