Just to make things hard, I recently realised that food in New Zealand is packaged with kilojoules, not calories. I am not sure how long it took me to come to this startling conclusion, but it was an embarrassingly long time.
So, around the same time I got the new scales, I switched to kilojoule counting. Exactly the same goal as before, but in kilojoules. It has taken that time to get my head around eating 1000 kilojoules for each meal, with leeway for higher calorie items and some snacks. I’ve gone over my limit most days, but now that I have a better idea of what I should be aiming for, it’s time to get back on track.
