    I don't track.

    That's the same answer I would give if the OP was asking me that question in person.

    Well if the question was "Do you track your calories?" it would warrant that type of response. That wasn't the question.

    Neckhammer... your mom tracks my calories. OOoooooooohhhhh!!!!

    I get that people don't track here that's fine. I'm trying to lose some Body fat at the moment. I have been managing to lose 1lb a week consistently with counting calories. I wouldn't worry about my intake if I'm on maintenance. I would think that even being on paleo, I would still have to watch what I'm eating as I have issues eyeballing portions of food. At times, I don't eat enough for appetite reason as it is getting hot where I am and this affects how much I eat.

    I use the harris benedict equation to estimate my calorie goal and x that with how active I am during the week. The more I lose the lower I bring my caloric intake to support my current weight. This has worked for me when I want to lean out, I was just curious if you are tracking your calories and macro if so then what type of tools online you use to get an estimation.

    Question... if you are losing 1lb a week consistently without tracking... what exactly is the problem that you need to track for?

    I understand why a person may choose to track if they are eating very cleanly and seen no loss in a month or so... plateaus happen... and sometimes even tracking and changing the macros and caloric intake doesn't budge the scale because the body just needs a little time to reset things. But your consistent loss sounds right on target...

    *shrug*

    In answer... I track some, but irregularly. I lose VERY slowly due to having some serious medical problems... and when I track it's usually to ensure I'm not under eating calorically (as in falling below about 1100 cal) due to nausea issues.
    I do not use a set program to 'track'... but when I need to look up foods I tend to use Nutrition facts, calories in food, labels, nutritional information and analysis &ndash; NutritionData.com ... I simply enter the numbers from there into a calculator.

    I only do this If I feel like I've been sliding... a few days of tracking and I'm good to go for a while.
    And when there are days that I'm really dicey about food I usually add a few hundred calories of heavy cream to my breakfast coffee, or eat some whipped coconut cream later. Those are small portion, easy to swallow, and calorically dense.
    I'd add something 'better' but some days chewing makes for bad times.

    I do track that's why I have been able to lose a 1lb a week.

    Years ago I did it all very meticulously and manually in a big excel sheet (more like a database) … now I use MyPlate - Food Diary & Food Calorie Counter | LIVESTRONG.COM just for the convenience, and try not to obsess if everything isn’t 100% accurate to/for the brands, amounts, ingredients I use. As long as the macros and total calories in/out are close I’m happy, small fluctuations are normal I just need it to keep me accountable and from having to much to often.
