Know your energy needs

Get to know how many calories you need on most days, and how many you actually eat. Count your calories, if only for a few days. (article here…)  Most people hate doing it but it’s the only way to actually see the mindless eating over the keyboard or steering wheel or in front of the television. You can carry a small notebook and log everything or use an app: MyNetDiary, Loselt, MyFitnessPal, and MyPlate are four popular apps to track calories.
