I ate all of my food for today, then I was unsure of how many calories I was eating. I decided I should probably use MyFitnessPal for once, and when I tallied everything up, it was over 2,000 calories. I had no idea it'd be that much, but it puts into perspective how much I'm eating on a regular basis. I was under the impression my average calorie intake was around 1,700-1,800.
I'll be abandoning the calorie dense food, and going back to what I usually eat. It's very surprising. Although it's not good to obsess over calories too too much, I think using the app for a little while until you gauge an idea of how many calories are in regular meals is a good idea.
I'm feeling very frustrated now, but I won't be making that mistake tomorrow… hopefully!
