Count calories or not count?

At first glance, it is difficult - to constantly lug around with a notebook and fix each “cous”. But after a month of calculations Anya dropped five kilograms!
It was a stable result, she continued to lose weight, not recovering, as after extradiet. Anya ate a little less per day than necessary - a total of 1,700 calories. But on the other hand, she could choose only her favorite products, and did not even deny herself adored grapes, again, in a slightly smaller quantity than before.
It is quite easy and even interesting at first to count calories. There are several nuances of counting.
1 Start a special notebook or take a place to write in a working notebook. Carry it all the time with you.
2 At the beginning of the notepad, draw a table of caloric value of the main foods you like. Add it as you fill the information.
3 Calories of any product can be viewed on the Internet. If two or more sources give different numbers, take the arithmetic average.
4 Get yourself a measuring cup with marks for flour, sugar, cereals, and so on, or a set of measuring spoons. Measure everything you eat. Remember that volume and weight are not the same thing, and 100 grams of semolina will not fit in a 100-mm glass.
5 Also need a kitchen scale. Although you can do without them: understand how many grams in one fruit or vegetable can be divided by the total weight of the purchase by the number of items.
6 On the label of any product its calorie content is indicated, therefore, it is a little easier at first to eat food that does not need to be cooked: cottage cheese, yogurt, cereal.
7 Try to eat at home for the first month. Over time, you get used to counting and learn how to determine how many calories are contained in restaurant dishes. But it's hard to understand right away.
8 If you still come to a restaurant, order something light. In all decent places today a very good selection of low-calorie, dietary meals is offered. You can order a salad, steamed fish, light soup. Calculate the calorie content approximately: look at how many grams of the main product are in a dish, how many - a side dish, whether butter was used. And add all this data.
9 The calorie content of the finished dish is the sum of everything that went into it. For example, a serving of boiled rice: 80 g of dry rice (265 calories) and 240 g of water (0 calories). The hardest thing to count is soup. Do not forget to mark ingredients such as butter, sour cream, seasonings.
If you can not live without sweet, but you can safely give up the flour and love vegetables, then you will not have to torment yourself much. After a low-calorie vegetable salad, you can eat a cake, and in total it will be as much as the same salad, but with two sandwiches.

Gradually, you will learn to adjust your menu depending on preferences.

Count calories or not count?

  1. The Bible considers it a sin divorce of spouses. Why?
    As a book of spiritual teaching, the Bible gives advice and recommendations regarding our spiritual life, and not our material life on
  2. Hypothesis # 2: The virus that causes AIDS is much older than previously thought.
    It all started with the fact that in the frozen tissues of a black teenager who died more than 30 years ago in a St. Louis hospital from an “unknown disease” they discovered HIV. The 1968 sample of the virus was comprehensively studied and a very interesting fact was found out: it turned out that it remained virtually unchanged and was unusually similar to modern HIV samples. This questioned the theory of the origin of HIV from African
  3. Do I have to reckon with the independence of her husband, if I always want to be with him?
    At first glance, the husband seems to you independent, but do 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 belongs to the type of men who strongly do not want to admit their dependence. There is every reason to believe that he is dependent on your dependence. He probably likes to feel that
  4. The infant mortality rate is considered a barometer (indicator) of the social well-being of people living in a given territory.
    In the statistics of infant mortality, it is customary to single out 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) postneonatal mortality (death from the 29th day of life to 1 year It is calculated per 1000 births
  5. What to do if you think you have a problem with drug use
    First, learn to recognize drugs and the symptoms of their use. Secondly, trust your intuition. If you feel that a subordinate is experimenting with drugs, this may be true. Check if there are any drugs in his personal belongings (most often, servicemen store narcotic substances in household pantries, in personal “diplomats”, bags, suitcases,
  6. Do you think that the philosophy of life 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 simply not allow myself to preach it. I myself have been using it in practice with my second spouse for nine years now and I can rightfully say that I observe positive results every day. Compared with the first marriage, which lasted fifteen years, the difference is enormous! Happiness that i
  7. I am a responsible person, and I consider that my burden is too heavy. What to do to not feel guilty when I can not cope with all the tasks?
    Is the severity that you feel the result of having taken on too many commitments? Have you pledged to yourself or to another person? Perhaps you feel responsible for the happiness of others? If the latter assumption is most likely, then in this book you will find the true definition of responsibility. If you took on too much
  8. What happens to a person if he is guilty, but does not give himself the report and does not consider himself guilty? Will he be punished? Will he reap what he has sown?
    Laws apply to everyone, regardless of whether we believe in them or not. For example, if someone drives through a red light and tells the policeman that he doesn’t know the law or that he doesn’t believe in it, this jigit will still have a fine. It is the same with 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 deliberately
  9. I think that having children is a big responsibility. It can even be called a lifetime 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 a decision to have a child, you should not think that you are responsible for his happiness. Your first motivation should be to give your soul a chance to return in order to incarnate. It is a gift of self. Then, to continue growth, you must learn to love this soul that has chosen you. To have a child is
  10. As a mother, I feel responsible for feeding the children well, because I think that they are too young to take care of their own health. I have three children aged four to nine years. Do 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 having children, that is, to monitor their material needs, help them with their studies, pass on their knowledge to them, give them love, and all this to the extent that you can. On the other hand, you cannot know in advance what the results will be. You can cook the most
  11. My mother has been in a psychiatric institute for more than a year, awaiting placement in a medical institution. Since I am the only person through whom she communicates with the outside world, I feel obliged to take care of her. Other than the trust she gives me, what gift can I get from this situation? Our relations have never been close, practically they simply do not exist.
    As for the gift, the hint about it is contained in your question. This is the perfect case to get close to your mother. However, how do you experience a sense of duty towards her? Do you care for her from a pure heart? Would you feel guilty if you didn't do this? No child owes his parents and vice versa. However, the bonds that bind parents and children provide

    Why so far failed to lose weight for everyone? We have already stressed that the reason for this lies in the erroneous or inaccurate ideas about metabolism, about the mechanisms of accumulation and consumption of fat reserves. Mistakes give rise to doubts, and doubts make us stop in indecision. And one of these very common misconceptions is to think that the more satisfying a product is, the more
  13. Calories
    The value of products continue to be measured in calories. Calorie is the same unit of measure 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 required to heat 1 kg (about 2.25 pounds) of water per degree Celsius. Heat and energy are considered equivalents and
  14. Calories: who how much?
    Once I watched a scientific film about healthy eating, production, it seems, the BBC. The journalist asked the passers-by the same question: “What is calorie?”, And no one could answer. Everyone said: this is something that is in the products. There are a lot of them in chocolate, but nobody knew exactly what it really is. I admit, I also learned the scientific definition only when I began to be seriously interested.
