Okay, so have you determined how many calories you need?! (Please note there was a mistake on the equation from the September newsletter. Visit the Mower Refreshed website for the corrected equation.) The next step is to start tracking your calories.
The most common question I get is as a Dietitian is, “how many calories should I be eating”? And as we approach holiday season, I realized this may be the optimal time to talk about what calories are, how many you need, and how to adjust them to meet your weight goals.
Fair food is notoriously fried, sweet and interestingly weird. Only at the fair could a vendor offer fried Coca Cola or Pepsi Cola and make a killing. It seems like every year they come out with something even stranger than the year before; the Iowa State Fair even sells fried butter now! As a dietitian, I cannot say that I am tempted to try that one, but you might get me interested in a funnel cake or part of a fried Snickers.
