I have totally not been counting calories. I really honestly forgot. I have lost 18 pounds in a little under three weeks!!! How many of you forget to count calories or Protein? ?

Try the My Fitness Pal app. It works great for logging your foods. You can set it for the amounts/limits of Protein, days and carbs that your doc and NUT set for you. Mine is 60 grams of Protein, 30 grams of fats, and 100 grams of carbs per day. I also keep track of weight, daily Vitamins, exercise etc. The app can be used on your computer or phone. It's been a lifesaver for me. I feel like it keeps me accountable for what I eat. It has most foods on it already, and you can also input your own recipes.

I use my fitness pal... I don't really count calories though, I just track Protein, carbs and sugar but I can see the calories.

I don't count calories anymore, I just track Protein right now. Am trying to figure out how to track carbs but haven't been as successful, though I try to stay away from them as much as possible. I'll have a bit of carbs when I can but I haven't quite figured that all out yet.

I'm diabetic Si I have to kinda stat away from carbs if I want to stay insulin free. And I remember them saying you have to get so many calories in order for you to lose wright properly. I know I'm not getting enough Protein but I refuse to use that nasty powder or pay for those expensive drinks other people are buying. I've been making homemade chicken salad and eating two or three spoonfuls on a piece of lettuce for lunch. Then a glass of milk. I get my protein from that and an egg and slim fast.

MyFitnessPal is great for tracking calories, fat, Protein, ect. My doc doesn't really want me counting calories, but I have to, to keep myself accountable. I'm 7 months out and could eat just about anything. It keeps me on track!

Look up myfitnesspal.com. The app on iPad is a blue square with a white outline of a person jumping.

I agree, My Fitness Pal is great! If you log on through a computer, you can change your daily goals to help keep you on track. I also purchased a Fitbit and have it linked to MFP.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
