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.

Drinking lots of water daily
To help make sure I drink plenty of water everyday, I fill 5 bottles with water (1 litre each) and keep in the fridge before going to bed. The next day I need to drink all five bottles throughout the day ...

Giving up the scale?
When I stop weighing, I gain weight. I seem to do best weighing once or twice per week. Every day can be too frustrating. Not weighing at all leads to sure weight gain.
