A lot of people aren't keen on tracking their calories, feeling like they are becoming 'obsessive', or that it is an unhealthy state of mind. For the record, I COMPLETELY disagree. I heard an interesting video on facebook the other day comparing your calorie intake to your bank account.
Imagine that going into your overdraft is the same as eating too many calories. You would never ignore how much you had in your account, or simply guess how much you are spending and hope it will be ok, it would be financial suicide, so why would you guess when it comes to your body?
It is a hugely beneficial exercise to track your calories once in a while. It doesn't have to be forever, but you will be surprised how much you will learn. You will then be able to formulate a plan of what to eat on a daily basis, helping to keep your weight where you want it to be for the long term.
