I keep a book of NK recipes...
Going with the thread about tracking, I keep a small spiral notebook with recipes that I love that are NK. I input them into a popular calorie tracker and write down everything in my note book. When I get better at eyeballing my food instead of weighing, I just have to reference my cards and everything is set up for me. Example:

Chicken With Bacon and caramelized onions

3 oz chicken, cubed
1 oz bacon
1/4 cup carmelized onions
1/3 cup sour cream

533 calories
37.4 fat gr
9.4 carbs
38.9 protein

Each recipe is 475-535 calories, so I just have 3 recipes a day with and added snack (about 300 calories) and I don't have to worry about how many calories I'm taking in. I already figured it out!

I make enough so that I have some for days measured out in containers in the fridge. Makes life a lot easier. Of course you'd have to do this to your own needs, since some need more fat, others more protein. I plan on adding 1.5 oz of protein to every recipe when I get to goal to maintain. :jumpjoy: I would love to be able to say I won't track, but I got de-railed last time by not. Too easy to lose control for me.

That's what I need!!! Awesome idea!

I think I will do this through my tracking website as meals. That way, I can automatically add them to my daily count! Thanks for the idea.

I didn't think counting calories was necessary, I am confused.

Calorie counting is not necessary but it is often part of the output from food trackers. In fact, I have never seen one that doesn't do this as the primary function. Just ignore it.
