Or at the end of the day guesstimate ..
Anyways excited to get started!
I don't track calories. I can judge what is approximately 500 calories (lunch and dinner) and then the remaining 500 I'm allowed a day go into snacks and what I need to consume at night to eat. tbh.. I do worse when I track calories. instead if I have a burger meal, I make my snacks all fruit or veggies.

The biggest bonus for me, was cutting out calorie drinks. What people tend to not realize is drinks are empty calories (with the exception of a smoothie or something similar).. they can make you gain weight even if you eat a "perfect" diet otherwise! I cut out OJ the first week DH went back to work, before I even saw my doctor and started losing weight.. and went down a full pound. I never realized that 8-12oz of 100% pure juice could make me fat.
