Hi, I am Julie
I have never been on a diet before.
I love sweets.
I tend to eat to much at one sitting.
I have started calorie counting
and figuring out how much calories is in each food.
I am figuring out that things I thought was healthy, such as 2 cups of milk and a banana, is actually high in calories.
I do not eat much meat. I am not vegetarian, but I just don't like meat very much.

Hi Julie, welcome to 3FC!

With your example of 2 cups milk and a banana, I wouldn't exactly consider it unhealthy. If you do 2 cups of skim (180 calories) plus a medium banana (another 80) then you're at 260 calories which isn't bad and would probably be a nice snack or start to a good breakfast. Of course, if you're talking 2 cups whole milk then that's almost 300 calories from milk alone!

For me, calorie counting is about trade offs and flexibility If you need any ideas for snack, meals, and more there are tons of great suggestions all around the forum and everyone's always willing to help out. Hope you like it here

Hi Julie,
I'm new here too. I just signed up today and have never used forums before. I'm trying to learn how this all works. I want to learn how to use the ticker. I have the url but don't know where to post. it.
I have been a yo-yo dieter my whole life. I recently started a new diet and have lost 16 pounds. I hope I can keep it up and get lots of tips on this site.

Hi Julie and Blondie! Welcome!

I'm a calorie counter, too. We've got a group down below if you'd like to check it out. This is a great place to be for support and ideas. Anxiously awaiting my 20 day mark so I can get a ticker. LOL
