When you're out and about, assume what you picked up to eat has more fat and calories than you think

Then when you get home and really figure it out, you will either be happily surprised that you didn't over indulge. Or you'll be glad you stopped when you did!

I went to the fair, and HAD to have a fried artichoke heart sandwich. I didn't want to stop and use my phone to look up every ingredient, so I just threw in a fried chicken sandwich with sauce figuring it would be close. Then I felt guilty about the 600 calorie lunch, skipped the beer stand, drank lots of water, and avoided the curly fries all together, but did give in on a free scoop of ice-cream Wink .

When I got home and actually dialed in all the ingredients, the fat and calories were WAY less than I had estimated and I was able to stay within my RDI for the day. The fat was still a little high, but hey, I only go to the fair once or twice a year! Cool

Good idea. Smile
I always take the time to calculate thoroughly though. This has become essential to me. I feel much more comfortable knowing exactly what I'm doing.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.
