How to calorie count
:confused: It is easy to track how many calories you eat when you have the "Nutrition Facts" box on the back of your food. But can someone help me out with counting, or estimating the calories of foods made by self or foods ordered at restaurants for instance? Is there a specific way to count the calories, or.....? Help me out here, please? I appreciate it.
