When I forward the Lose It! summaries here, it loses the excel food log. Thought I’d post a couple to explain the comment I made to David yesterday about eating similar things everyday. I’m pretty picky eater, so if I like something I tend to eat it over and over again for years. So if I get into a good habit it is easier to stick in that regard.
Edit: I also should add, I am pretty good about recording all the actual items. I am less good about estimating some of the quantities (especially some of the ones where lose it wants a measurement completely different from what I would find intuitive for the particular item). I work off the assumption that I am under-estimating some things and over-estimating others, but that we are biased towards under-estimation. So I assume I’m under-recording by 100-200 calories a day. Generally I try to not eat my exercise calories, but there are just days where the plan doesn’t quite work and I will allow myself to eat a few of them (but not all).
