Default Carbohydrateds, Protien,fat?

Are Caliories What I Need To Watch More Or Do I Have To Keep Up With Everything Else Too ? I Think I Can Handle Watching My Calories But Not Everything Else Too Just To Overwelming. Hope This Isn't A Stupid Question.

It really depends on what your overall goals are. If losing weight is your focus then the bottom line is calories in vs. calories out. If you are doing a significant amount of strength training you will probably want to keep an eye on your protein intake. If cholesterol is an issue you might watch your fat intake, saturated fat in particular. And on, and on.

You might check out fitday.com. It is free and an easy way to keep up with your daily calorie intake. In addition, it breaks everything else (carbs, protein, fats, etc.) out for you. So, you can keep and eye on the levels of those things without really having to do any extra work.

I watched my Calorie and my fat intake as well as my protein and even at times my carbs also. best thing to do is get a cheap one subject notebook and write down everything you eat and track it for a little while until you understand what your eating and where the calories and the fat intake is going to. You can track whatever you like and it only takes a few minutes each meal to write the info down and then at the end of your eating day you add up your totals. I would check my totals after my lunch to see how I was doing into the day.
But after some time maybe a couple months you might not need to do this every day. Just here and there to keep yourself in check.
But you can trully see where you need to nip & tuck here and there when you do a journal. And many web sites offer the Nutrition information on most of the items you need that info on.

I estimate calories only, that is what works for me. I try to eat a well balanced diet making sure to eat at least some carbs, protein, fat etc - but it is only estimation.
I stick to around 1300-1500 calories a day with at least 15-20 minutes of activity per day. When I started I kept track in a journal, but I found that I no longer really need it.
