The Answer to My Weight Problem!
on July 7, 2007
I've tried most all of the well known "diets" that have surfaced over the years. Finally, I decided to get serious and realize that I can't eat as much food as I'd like to for my metabolism. So, I decided to start counting calories, and exercising more. I've lost 6 pounds in just two weeks, and I already feel better.
I actually came to Amazon to find a pocket calorie counter, and, as per the reviews, this one looked the best. It is! I take it with me everywhere now. It has most all of the mainstream chain restaurants' menu items in it, and gives calorie, fat, and carb amounts. It's a huge eye-opener!
However, for me, the real gem in it was the mention of the calorieking.com website, where I visited and downloaded their 7 day free trial software. I started logging in everything I ate, and all the exercise I did for each day. It computes the calories for you, and according to the exercise you do that day, it subtracts those calories from your total. Oddly, it was the simple answer I'd been looking for, and it's so easy to use.
It was so effective during the trial that I just went back to their site this morning and purchased it. It was well worth every penny I paid. After using it for just a few days, I found myself saying over and over, "Now I KNOW why I'm overweight!" Once you KNOW, you can't "Un-KNOW", and that really changes what you're willing to eat.
The book is indispensable if you eat out, as it opens your eyes right there at the table as to what you're about to order. I recommend it highly.
If you're overweight, tired of lying to yourself about the amount of food you're REALLY eating, this is the book for you.
Bless you, Calorie King!!
