Most people have heard that we burn around 2000-2500 calories a day, but do you know how many calories you eat? Understanding your daily calorie intake will make your weight journey easier to manage.
If you’re one of those people who claims to always eat healthy, workout a lot, yet doesn’t lose weight (and have no medical conditions behind it), chances are you’re in big need of a calorie intake app. Healthy food can be calorie dense and zero calorie food can be unhealthy – it doesn’t always go hand in hand. The trick here is portion control and to prioritization of the foods you’re eating.
A typically healthy breakfast consisting of greek yoghurt, walnuts, raspberries, and honey can vary widely in calories depending on your portion.
Let’s say you put one cup of greek yogurt in a bowl, top it with a handful of walnuts, half a cup of raspberries and a teaspoon of honey. That will make an excellent breakfast consisting of 342 kcal, 10g protein, 21g carbs, and 24g fat.
But what happens if you accidentally serve yourself one and a half cups of greek yogurt (which can often happen when pouring it over into a bowl), misinterpret what a handful really is and grab as many walnuts as you can in one hand, and pour honey without measuring? Then you easily hit a 627 kcal breakfast which was not at all what you intended. Measuring and tracking food with a calorie intake calculator app is a great way to be in control of your weight loss.
