i found the website called calorie count plus to be helpful when you're on a low calorie diet. you type in everything you eat.....and it tells you how many calories it is and gives you a grade based on the percentages of fat, etc. i've been on a diet of no more than 1200 calories and no more than 25 fat grams for almost 3 months now. a lot of the foods i eat include special k bars (strawberry) tuna with miracle whip on crackers (6) grapes...LOTS of grapes....and turkey...just plain old turkey. there is a brand called buddig. it's really thin sliced turkey that costs like 50 cents a pack! and the entire pack has 90 calories. i also drink an 8 oz. box of orange juice every morning....and drink nothing else but water. i started posting a daily food journal on here today that i am going to keep posting on every day (although today was not a good day 2 go by). it's called "my daily food journal" if you want to search for it......i don't know if you're THAT interested haha....but i've been pretty successful so far doing the low cal/low fat thing. good luck!!
