USE FATSECRET TO CONTROL YOUR DAILY INTAKE

Guidelines:
I love that you can daily follow your daily intake. As a woman I aim to eat 1200-1400 calories a day; less than 130g of carbs a day, less than 100g of sugar a day, more than 46g of protein a day, less than 50g of fat a day, and less than 1000mg of sodium a day. These are reference numbers. Sometimes I go a bit over them and sometimes under them, but it's good to have the numbers to control bingeing, hunger and to be healthy, basically.
