It's a personal choice.
Eg, last night I had a belgian chocolate sponge thingy from Sainsbury's, purchased by OH, but eaten of my own free will. On the packet it tells me that one pudding (ie one serve) is 583 kcal. Wow that's a lot. It wasn't a big serve, and it wasn't all that great. Definitely not worth the kcal. In future, eat no more than half, only for a treat.
In the past, I would probably have had the pudding with ice cream too! No wonder I got fat.
"The best diet is the one that can get you into a calorie deficit without feeling too hungry or deprived."
That's exactly how I feel about this WOE!
Maybe what I need to do is keep a food diary, but only work out the calories after a week or two.
But, I now have bank of regular food in my fitness pal, things which I've previously spent a few mins weighing, measuring etc. so now I have them to hand at all times.
But knowledge is key for me.
Slice of ham 34 cals,
Pepsi max 3
Those forgotten nibbles add up for me.
We are all different, whatever works for one will definitely not work for all.
Ps you are a nice friendly bunch on here
