If I'm looking up grilled chicken, I will usually try to put in grilled chicken breast, and look for one that looks about right.. if theres on that is 400 cals, one that is 100 and one that is 280, I'll pick the one in the middle. They have started "verifying" cal counts also, so look for the little green check mark. Then I make sure I add stuff like, a tablespoon of olive oil if I cooked it in that, or whatever.. I didn't really track to much in the very early stages, but I would put in things like my Protein Drinks and stuff..

This thread got me interested in further research on the subject, I found this article and the references fascinating...

And add to it the problems of figuring out your caloric set point that HBO highlighted in their documentary on the weight of the nation special...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i_cmltmQ6A

It is made even more complicated by the changes in hormone levels due to surgery and weight loss changes our body and makes us more efficient metabolic machines. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/grp/2013/528450/

This all points to one important thing, we don't know everything. So to the point of this thread, don't go nuts trying to figure out each calorie, but, it is a guide to help you lose and a good tool to aid you. But we are very complex critters. So eat well, just less of it and hang on as we keep learning new things.

And keep listening to the many successful people on this site and their advise, I do.
