I feel really silly to be asking this question, but it has plagued me for a while. Oftentimes, I am not the one to cook dinner, or food is provided to me as takeout. I don't know what it is or what is in it, so I cannot accurately log. If this was a once-in-a-blue-moon thing, I could just not log that day. But I find myself in the somewhat frustrating situation of making ballpark guesses at what was in the food I ate and how much of each ingredient was there.
How do you guys handle when you're not always the cook? Just exercise more that day and hope for the best?
I've been trying that for 10 weeks now, and I've only lost half a pound. Some days, I know I need to be over my calorie output because I'm with another person and cannot do my own thing, but still eat my food so as not to be rude. I try to make up for it the next day by eating less. Any ideas?
