I am ready to use the posted recipies, however some do not have calorie counts, or some nutritional facts entered. Also the serving sizes are not exact, such as 1/4…1/2 … or one cup, just says makes 8 servings. I weigh and measure everything i eat to keep within my 1000 calories and carbs low, would be a great help if we could get a few more specifics when it comes to this. Thanks, Greatly appreciated.

I have been on and off 1000 calorie diets for years. My doctor recommended a 1200 calorie diet but I reduced it to 1000 since I am very familiar with them. I no longer weigh food because I can eye it and get the serving size down to the ounces of what I am going to eat. I may be off some but not enough to be concerned. I simply use common sense when it comes to recipes with no calorie counts. I look at the ingredients in the dish then look at what I am going to eat with the item. If the calories for the meal total 250 calories and it is the middle of the day, I may eat a cup.

I have also found that if I am more active, I increase the calorie count to at least 1100. I have found that being active on 1000 calories will make you hungry between snacks and meals because I am burning calories.

Calories counts are very important to me, 1000 is what my doctor says I must do, i can usually get down 850 on a good day. I am 56 yes old and have a good eye for measuring also, not worried about going over in calories, need to reach my goal
