I usually do, it helps me keep on track, because I'm a binge eater. I find that if I write it all down, I don't binge nearly as much. I try to stay around 1500 a day, but that's hard, eating cafeteria food, processed, and full of calories, but it's all I get.
i do count calories as the day goes on. i think it's healthy, for me personally, to eat between 1500-2200 cals per day, depending on activity. i think that 1200 is too low unless you are not active at all and elderly.
I eat when I want and usually what I want. But I do usually count calories at the end of the day- especially if I've eaten junk food all day. I'm always full though and satisfied and I'm at a healthy weight. But I just like to the numbers.
I eat at average 700-1500 calories a day. Sometimes more, if I am going to a football game or a party.
i estimate how many calories i eat to make sure i'm getting enough but not too many (1400 or more per day but no more than 2000) but i rely more on portion size and satisfying my hunger by eating slowly.
I tried the whole calorie-counting thing at one point, never worked out for me. For one, it bugged the heck out of me trying to estimate how many calories were in any given item. I just wanted to eat my meals!! I don't calorie count. Not at all. I eat when I'm hungry, also a lot of times when I'm not hungry. I probably eat more than I should. Just go for a walk if you feel guilty. :P
I used to count obsessively, but not anymore. I find that I consume less calories when I don't count (well...I counted at the end of that day) than when I actually count. I usually eat around 500-1500 a day. Yeah, my intakes vary greatly.
I used to and maintained it between 800-1000. College kind of hinders my ability to really care about anything else but passing my courses, now. Ha. I should get back on doing that, though. As well as excercising. Good idea!
