I came into this thread wondering about that. So could one say that looking that the whole list of Fat grams, Carbs, Sugar, Sodium, etc... is actually just over complicating everything?
I'm mean sure you can glance at the Vitamins or Iron or Potassium and so on to see if you're getting nutrition, but for dieting can one get by with relying on the Calorie count?
I recently have gotten really off-track with trying to lose weight. I'd made some progress, but then on a business trip I was at a convention banquet that had this awesome gourmet buffet style catering and I indulged to much and my diet kind of got derailed.
So I've decided to finally actually see if I can work on calorie counting and figuring out what my daily calorie intake ought to be.
