I calorie count on livestrong.com, you put in your weight and activity level and it tells you how many calories you need to lose 1 or 2 lbs per week.. Right now I rely on packaged 100 calorie snacks for portion control, grits or oatmeal for breakfast, usually a turkey sandwhich, 100 calorie cheezits, and green salad for lunch or leftovers. It's easy to bring a loaf of bread and deli meat and keep at the office for the week. Been making a point to serve a vegetable with dinner instead of meat and three starches like I usually had. Like broccolli and cheese steam bags, brussel sprouts with some cajun seasoning, easy and it tastes good! Easy changes are switch ground turkey for beef, I really can not taste the difference and drops from 30% fat to 7%. I'm still eating "bad" food (fried fish) or chips and dip when they are offered, just mentally counting the chips or only a few bites of dip.
Good Luck, any changes are better than none! Come join us in the 100% Christmas challenge, we need some new blood and there are 37 days left!
