The Truth About Avocados
I love using avocados for tuna salad and chicken salad (instead of using bread / pita).

Tracking what you eat is a big advantage. It also helps you to plan, even if it's something "bad." I already input my Dunkin Donuts Coffee Coolatta for a snack. Surprised

Also, I think the number is 3,500 calories per pound.

P.S. I grabbed a muffin left over from a meeting at work, so I input the muffin and will save the Dunks for tomorrow.

CICO does it matter??
The junk food is considered empty calories. Oh, there may be a smattering of fiber or protein, but they call it "junk food" for a reason.

If I want, for example, to grab an ice ream cone from the ice cream stand around the corner from my house, that means I'll have to eat less fish / dairy / veggies / fruits to keep to my goal of 1600 calories per day.

What to do? Well, the next time, I'll order the kiddie cone, or I'll grab a single-serve from the supermarket.

Good luck!

will power
Someone once said, "Planning is more effective than willpower." I find it easier to plan my meals ahead of time. And if I want to have a 'treat', I add it to my FatSecret log in the beginning of the day, so it's already accounted for.

My weakness is ice cream. I use the smallest dish, about 3/4 cup, so that my brain thinks it's eating a lot.

Finally, write everything down. Even if you go over your allotted calories, at least you can look back and see where you can cut down.
