I got married like a week and a half ago, I wanted to get into shape before the wedding and i started at the gym by my eatting wasn't great. Know that the wedding is over, I would like to get the eatting part under control and start to lose weight. I would idealy like to lose like 40 lbs, of a period of time. (im not looking for a quick fix - more of a life style change)
I had notice from looking on this board before that A lot of you recommend calorie counting, which is great and id like to do that. But i really have no idea how. I dont really eat a ton of process stuff, so how do i figure out how many calories are in my dinner if i make dinner from scratch? Like for example, I made chicken marsella last night for dinner, which was chicken, flour, mushrooms, some oil, and some wine. How do i figure out how many calories that was? I suppose the more i do this the better I will be at knowing how many calories are in what. But i need a little help to start!!
Is there a website that you use? A book? Anything you recommend??
