Not really sure how to think of these calories. Confusion.

Monday, February 22, 2016

Being at college and eating at the dining hall makes calorie tracking difficult. I can usually get around a rough estimate if I stick to a serving of grilled chicken, a sandwich, or salad. However when it comes to hot meals for the day I have no idea what to say it is closest to. Because of this, It appeared that I was not getting enough calories today. Even though I did eat well. I am also stumped at what choices are really healthier. For example, to save myself from falling into a pit from having the same three meals every day, I think I could take meals from the vegetarian section when available. I figure the vegetarian option could be healthier than the main meal. Tomorrow there will be a buffalo chickpea wrap and I have no idea if it is actually healthy. I really wish my dining hall was better stocked with healthy food. Tomorrow is also going to be chicken fingers and mac and cheese day. So I figure the mini turkey burgers would be a healthier choice but I will probably stick to grilled chicken for the best bet. Hopefully I will learn the in and outs of the dining hall soon! emoticon

    Hello and welcome to SparkPeople. My suggestion is that you go to the Articles & Videos tab on the top of this page. There is a drop down menu of articles and videos that can help you determine what you need to know about calories and foods of all kinds. I think you will be able to find what you need there. Also sign up for the 21 Day New Member Challenge if you haven't. That is an amazing help. If I can assist in any way, I am only a Sparkmail away. Have a blessed evening. Hugs and prayers, Mama Judy

    Dining halls are notorious for serving "fast food" but keep doing your best and see if they have a breakdown of calories on the food. Keep us posted!
