I have recently started to keep track of how many calories I eat each day (thanks to Blake AND my Android phone's "Calorie Counter" App). It really puts things in to perspective...unfortunately.
On a rare food binge, Blake and I discovered that each yummy, flaky, delicious Red Lobster cheese biscuit contains 150 calories. (Our waitress tried to tell us it was 400, but the calorie counting app begs to differ.) Ugh--especially after eating one and a half of them... SO. Not. Worth. It.
Any way...the app takes all of the fun out of eating. Before I eat anything now I think to myself, "Am I going to feel ok about putting this in to the calorie counter?" If the answer is "no" I usually don't eat it.
