calorie counting.

oh gosh. i started by reading up healthy living stuff on webmd. then i found a website that helps you find out the nutritional infor and caloric amounts for like entire homemade recipes by choosing ingredients from a dropdown menu.

anyone that knows me well has had my "maccaroni like grandma" or ghetto maccaroni as some people call it.

so i analyzed it, its what i had for dinner and i eat this, unfortunately, too often.

are you positive the portion size is correct? there's no way that the little bowl you usually eat of that stuff is worth 1200 calories.

Not all foods that are low in fat are actually low in calories. There has been an explosion of foods that are reduced in fat in the market but mind you most of them are low in fat yet contain lots of sugar such as snacks bars, cookies, cakes, candies, ice cream and so on. Such foods do not promote a healthy diet, even if they are low in fat.
