Re: Need to keep track of what I'm eating

At about 1200 calories for today, pretty good. Is there such a thing as too little calories to drop weight? I don't think 1200 is anorexic :P

I do care about Caloric intake, but at this point i'm so far over it doesn't really matter exactly. My 20 beers /week was just a rough estimation. Sometimes I'll have 3 6 packs throughout the week, sometimes I'll drink heavily on two nights (at parties, I don't think I classify as an alcoholic.) I c...
