We all do!!! I wish there was a magic calorie eraser that would mean I could eat an entire tub of ice cream but it would somehow not actually make it into my body and turn into fat that I then have to go and burn off!! I still slip up. A lot. But I'm learning that some food is just better for me than other food and I'm getting better at choosing the healthy stuff. The slips ups are ok when we're able to keep a healthy balance most of the time. And, when we can just manage to eat one piece of chocolate.... 2999 days ago

It is difficult in the beginning. Over time it gets easier. After a year, you can tell how many calories there are in a plate reasonably accurately. So you don't have to track your food forever, but you do need to track it until it becomes automatic for you to tell what it means to eat any particular plate or how to prepare a plate that complies with your caloric range. 3000 days ago
