When you’re counting calories, make sure you don’t get bogged down in trying to be 100% accurate, especially when you’re eating something (like at a restaurant) that’s impossible to be sure of all the ingredients. If you get too perfectionistic, you’ll likely get frustrated and ultimately give up, telling yourself, “Since I can’t know what’s in it, I can’t count it.” Spend no more than 5 minutes and choose a calorie count that seems reasonable. That’s the best you can do!
