Thanks! Love how they give calorie requirements based upon what you're doing - exercising, not exercising, exercising 30 mins, etc.

Only problem I see is how do I figure out what 3000 calories is?

If I'm supposed to be eating 3000 calories a day +1/2 hr of exercise to lose weight, what do these calories look like?

I think there is a calorie counter on PT. The wiki thing? Otherwise, there are tons of websites that will calculate your calories for you. And you could look on nutrition labels, too.

See, that's the problem, there's no label on homemade food, and that's where I have a problem figuring out calories.

There is a label on everything that you put into your homemade foods, or if it is fresh food - i.e. veggies, meat, etc. - then those items are on the calorie wiki or on websites like calorieking.com. You just have to measure how much goes into the food, and what portion of the total you are eating at each serving.

I use calorieking.com to estimate calories of foods that aren't labeled like fresh fruits and veggies and meats, and also of restaurant foods for non-chain restaurants. I've found that those numbers are pretty realistic (just watch the portion sizes - that's the most important thing!)

For home made food what you would have to do is count the calories for the individual ingredients. Then, add them all up. Then, multiply that number by the percentage of the finished meal that you ate. Even then, there may be some variations (I don't know anyone who manages to get their drop cookies all the same size, or muffins all the same size).

Plus, it can be a real pain trying to figure out the calorie amount when you're using less than a serving size.

As most of what I eat is homemade, and I hate math, I don't do the calorie counting way of losing wieght.

This is one reason I refuse to go the calorie counting way.

I love counting calories that way I know what is going into me.
And all I do is add up everything that goes into a dish and then when I serve it I divide it into however many portions I want. Then total calories divided by the number of portions.
It really is easier as you get used to it and it opens your eyes as to how many calories a day you eat without even knowing it.
Some people say not to count your veggies but I would say that I eat about 200-300 calories a day worth of veggies. That adds up over time.
I use the calorie king book. And the peertrainer calorie wiki if I need to and as a last resort you can google anything.
