I used to be a very fat teenager. I had lots of trouble buying clothes and used to get depressed over my weight. Luckily, I lost most of it when I was studying overseas, partly due to more exercise and also better awareness about food and calories. One of the best tools I had then was this great calorie counter. It was fast and very easy to use. All I had to do was the search or type in the type of food I was eating and it will pull out the nutritional information on that food. This way, I learnt how to avoid high-caloric foods such as desserts, chips and fried foods. I also learnt how to avoid high-carbohydrate foods which can easily lead to weight gain. Best of all, the counter was 100% free which was perfect for students such as me. I’m sad to say that I’ve slid a little with my healthy food choices when I returned home due to the abundance of good food available here. However, I’ve resolved to start using my calorie counter again!
