I'm new to calorie counting too. I don't have any advice to give you really because I am struggling to make a change myself. After logging in my usual food intake, I was off the charts! My fats were in the 40% which blew me away. It's no wonder I'm heavy. I also found that I was eating over 2,500 calories when not watching my intake. Now, I've calmed it down a bit. I'm more balanced and down to 1,500 -2,000 cal. a day.
The only thing I can suggest is to make sure you monitor your calorie count and utilize the other charts like nutrition and the pie chart. The other members have given you some great advice too. Best wishes on your weight loss journey. The main thing is to learn more about yourself and your habits so that you can make changes that will be more permanent. Learning where you make poor choices help you to make better choices.
