Being a bit over-enthusiastic on Monday and eating too few calories (blame it on the excellent NHS website for making me a calorie zealot) I've been given good advice on sensible calorie reduction. So Tuesday was better. After a Quorn curry for my evening meal I found I had about 300 calories left to my target of 1900. So I felt justified in going to the pub with my friends and having one pint of beer (230 calories) eked out over the evening. I normally would have three pints. I know its empty calories, but psychologically justified.
I've assembled a simple spreadsheet to keep track of calories and give me a running total as well as making me look at what I'm eating.
Thanks for the many replies I had to Monday's posting.
