The other day I went on "calorieking.com" to see how many calories I was eating compared to the recommended 2000 per day for an adult. I was over Way over. So, I'm trying to watch it. I'm not overweight by much (10-15 pounds), but I have in life until now just gone running to control weight. Once I did the Adkins thing. But I was surprised to see how much in calories I was putting away. This site is pretty persuasive about no matter how you divvy carbs and fat, it's all calories in the end, and that's what counts. If you're taking in more than you burn, you will gain weight. And vice-versa.
