Count calories or not count?

At first glance, it is laborious - constantly dragging around with a notebook and fixing each "kus". But after a month of counting, Anya dropped five kilograms!
It was a stable result, she continued to lose weight, not recovering, as after extradite. Anya ate a little less than necessary - a total of 1700 calories. But she could choose only her favorite products, and did not even deny herself adorable grapes, again, in a slightly smaller amount than before.
To count calories is easy enough and at first even interesting. There are several nuances of counting.
1 Start a special notebook or take a place in the working notebook for recording. Carry it constantly with you.
2 At the beginning of the notebook draw the calorie table of the main foods that you like. Update it as you fill out the information.
3 The caloric content of any product can be viewed on the Internet. If two or more sources call different numbers, take the arithmetic mean.
4 Take a measuring glass with marks for flour, sugar, cereals and so on or a set of measuring spoons. Measure everything that you eat. Remember that volume and weight are not the same, and 100 g of semolina is not placed in a 100-millimeter glass.
5 We also need a kitchen scale. Although you can do without them: to understand how many grams in one fruit or vegetable can be, by dividing the total weight of the purchase by the number of items.
6 The label of any product indicates its calorie content, so it's a bit easier to eat food at first, which you do not need to cook: cottage cheese, yoghurt, cereal.
7 Try to eat at home the first month. Over time, you will get used to count and learn how to determine how many calories are contained in restaurant dishes. But it's difficult to understand right away.
8 If you still came to the restaurant, order something light. In all decent establishments today a very good choice of low-calorie, dietary dishes is offered. You can order a salad, fish for a couple, light soup. Caloric value count approximately: look, how many in a dish of gramme of the basic product, how much - a garnish, whether oil was used. And add up all this data.
9 The caloric content of a ready-made dish is the sum of everything that went into it. For example, a portion of boiled rice: 80 grams of dry rice (265 calories) and 240 grams of water (0 calories). The most difficult thing is to count soup. Do not forget to note ingredients such as butter, sour cream, condiments.
If you can not live without sweet, but you can safely refuse from flour and like vegetables, you will not have to torment yourself greatly. After a low-fat vegetable salad, you can eat a cake, and in total it will amount to the same amount as a salad, but with two sandwiches.

Gradually, you will learn how to adjust your menu according to your preferences.

Count calories or not count?

  1. The Bible considers sin a divorce of spouses. Why?
    As a book of spiritual teachings, the Bible gives advice and advice on our spiritual life, not our material life on
  2. Hypothesis 2: The virus that causes AIDS is much older than previously thought
    It all started with the discovery of HIV in the frozen tissues of a black teenager who died more than 30 years ago in St. Louis Hospital from an "unknown disease". The virus of the 1968 sample comprehensively studied and found out a very interesting fact: it turned out that it practically did not change and is unusually similar to the current HIV samples. This questioned the theory of the origin of HIV from African
  3. Should I reckon with the independence of my husband if I constantly want to be close to him?
    At first glance, the husband seems independent, but one should not be mistaken. You depend on his presence, and he, of course, depends on something else. It is not by chance that you are together! Perhaps he refers to the type of men who strongly do not want to admit his dependence. There is every reason to believe that he is dependent on your addiction. He probably likes to feel that
  4. The indicator of infant mortality is considered a barometer (indicator) of the social well-being of people living in the area
    In the statistics of infant mortality, it is customary to identify a number of indicators: a) early neonatal mortality (death in the first 168 hours of life) b) late neonatal mortality (death at 2.3.4 weeks of life) c) neonatal mortality (death in the first 4 weeks of life) d) post-neonatal mortality (death from the 29th day of life to 1 year is calculated per 1000 births
  5. What to do if you think that you have encountered the problem of drug use
    First, learn to recognize drugs and the symptoms of their use. Second, trust your intuition. If you have a feeling that a subordinate is experimenting with drugs, this may be true. Check if there are any drugs in his personal belongings (most often military servicemen keep narcotic substances in household pantries, personal "diplomats", bags, suitcases,
  6. Do you think that the philosophy of life that you preach is the best way to help spouses who have problems?
    How can you confirm this? I completely trust this philosophy of life, otherwise I would just not have allowed myself to preach it. I myself apply it in practice with my second husband for nine years now and rightly can say that I see positive results every day. Compared with the first marriage, which lasted fifteen years, the difference is enormous! Happiness, which I
  7. I am a responsible person, and I believe that my burden is too heavy. What should I do not to feel guilty when I can not cope with all the tasks?
    Is not the heaviness that you feel the consequence of the fact that you have taken on too many obligations? Have you committed to yourself or to another person? Perhaps you feel responsible for the happiness of others? If the last assumption is most likely, then in this book you will find the true definition of responsibility. If you took too much
  8. What happens to a person if he is guilty, but does not give himself a report and does not consider himself guilty? Will he be punished? Will he reap what he sowed?
    Laws apply to everyone regardless of whether we believe in them or not. For example, if someone drives a red light and tells the policeman that he does not know the law or that he does not believe in him, this jigit will still get a fine. The same is true of spiritual laws - the law of karma or the law of cause and effect. If a person knows that he is breaking the law, and yet consciously
  9. I believe that giving birth to children is a big responsibility. This can even be called a lifelong contract. When I think I can cause them suffering, I feel bad. What do I need to do to think differently?
    Change your beliefs. First, when you make the decision to have a baby, then you should not think that you are responsible for his happiness. Your first motivation should be the desire to allow the soul to return to be incarnated. It is a gift of oneself. Then, to continue growing, you need to learn how to love this soul, which chose you. To have a child is
  10. As a mother, I feel responsible for feeding children well, because I think that they are too young to take care of their own health. I have three children between the ages of four and nine. Do not you think that this responsibility lies with me?
    You are not directly responsible for the health of your children. As a mother, you must be responsible for the consequences of the fact that you have given birth to children - that is, to monitor their material needs, to help them in their studies, to transfer their knowledge to them, to give them love, and all this to the extent that you can. On the other hand, you can not know in advance what the results will be. You can cook the most
  11. My mother has been in the psychiatric institute for more than a year, waiting for her to be admitted to the hospital. Since I am the only person through whom she communicates with the outside world, I feel obliged to take care of her. Except for the trust that it gives me, what gift can I get from this situation? Our relationship has never been close, in fact there is simply no such relationship.
    As for the gift, then a hint about it is contained in your question. This is the perfect occasion to get close to the mother. However, how do you experience a sense of duty towards it? Do you care for her with pure heart? Would you feel guilty if you did not do it? No child is obliged to his parents and vice versa. However, the bonds connecting parents and children provide
  12. Calories Calories Strife
    Why has not everyone managed to lose weight so far? We have already stressed, the reason for this lies in the erroneous or inaccurate ideas about metabolism, the mechanisms of accumulation and consumption of fat stores. Errors create doubts, and doubts force us to stop hesitating. And one of these very common misconceptions is to think that the more satisfying the product, the more
  13. Calories
    The value of products continues to be measured in calories. Calorie is the same unit of measurement as an inch or yard. Low calorie is the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram (20 drops) of water by one degree. A large calorie is the amount of heat needed to heat 1 kg (about 2.25 pounds) of water per degree Celsius. Heat and energy are considered equivalents and
  14. Calories: to whom to how many?
    Once I saw one science film about a healthy diet, produced, it seems, by the BBC. The journalist asked passers-by the same question: "What is a calorie?", And no one could answer. Everyone said: it's something that is in the products. There are a lot of them in chocolate, but no one knew exactly what it really was. I admit, I also learned a scientific definition only when I began to be seriously interested
