So I know most people around here don't advocate counting calories, however, I occasionally like to input my food to myfitnesspal just to see where I'm at. I feel like I eat a lot, usually 3 eggs and 3 pieces of bacon for breakfast with salsa and a dab of sour cream or cheese, sometimes some kale chips or a salad for lunch if I'm hungry, and I have at least 6 oz of either beef, poultry, or fish with lots of veggies for dinner, and of course a glass of red wine and a small square of 70% chocolate for dessert. I use at least 3 tablespoons of coconut oil daily to cook with, I can't stomach eating it or drinking it straight. I probably have sweet potato oven fries twice a week and I do drink a glass of coffee everyday and green tea in the afternoon. This only amounts up to around 1300-1400 calories. From what I've read around these boards that is not really enough to lose weight. Should I try to move more during the day to work up a bigger appetite or just go with my gut and only eat when I'm truly hungry?
