Observing and studying physical food labels and performing on-going searches on the internet--solved this complication. Now, I can make accurate approximations on the fly and its like riding a bike. It just took....a....little....proactive...work, and now its second nature. If a specific food item doesn't have a label (as some fresh meat do), and I am not sure of the calorie value, I simply look it up on the internet by simply moving the fingers.

Studying labels and its associated portion size, calories, micro and macro nutrients--can be a critical component to ones personal situation. And, its is far easier today to obtain these food values as compared to years past.

Soccermom, I wish you and your family the best. Hope all is well with you.

Have a great day!
