Calorie counting can be highly time consuming, what with recording every ingredient and condiment to an already rapidly rising total, however just taking the time to weigh out and record weights and measurements of the items you use most commonly can empower you with the knowledge you need to succeed on your weight loss journey.

Ok, so I’m not recommending you drink 25 litres of diet coke just because you can, but if you make yourself familiar with the foods you use regularly, at least you can get a good picture of what foods are within your calorie allowance and those that will just stretch that diet a little too far. Set aside half an hour or so with some kitchen scales and your food diary to give yourself a little head start

Take a look at channel 4’s My Big Fat Diet Show, starting on the 5th January at 20:00hrs for more ideas on which foods are worth keeping in your diet and those that should be saved for another day.
