Well the one on the mayoclinic is much better firstly!

Secondly you shouldnt be hungry if you spend your calories properly using them to eat a brick of cheese or to eat chocolate is wasting them... if you have lets say 1900 calories you can eat salads a bit of pasta rice(brown) egg white omlette fruit etc.. so try looking for alternative low cal meals

Thanks for the calorie counter!
But I believe that as long as you eat when you're hungry, stop when you're full, and maintain a relatively healthy diet, you won't have to count calories.
If you start, then you'll become over-obsessive (at least that's what my aunt did) and won't be able to enjoy the things you're eating becuase you'll be so worried about gaining weight.

My doctor told me that I should eat at least 1500 calories a day according to my height.

She said that all the back trouble I was having was due to my overweight.

How many calories do I need?

Apparently a whole lot less than I consume!
