Only 1200 Calories, and I Can’t Lose Weight!

Frustrated with your weight loss efforts? Try some honest realism. A quick visit to MyPyramid Tracker will reveal that the average baked potato served in America has 2.5 times more calories than the one listed in the food tables, thus underestimating actual calories. Or maybe one day you did eat 1200 calories, but the next two days you splurged on much more. 

PostiveTip: Accurately keep track of what you eat, including the snacks. It will help you learn what contributes to your total calorie intake over time.
