  • Questions only related to Nutrition are off topic on the site, according to the FAQ. Check out the Nutrition proposal on Area51. – Baarn Jan 4 '13 at 12:39
  • To give you a simple answer: Look up everything you eat, eg using google (search for calories [banana, meat, milk, etc]) and summarize. You don't need to do this perfectly as you will never exactly know how much you burned. Measuring Calories is a very inaccurate measurement. – Baarn Jan 4 '13 at 12:41

    there are smartphone apps / websites like "myfitnesspal" or "Livestrong MyPlate" that have imperfect calorie estimates based on foods that you enter. I've used those in the past with success to track my meals. – DavidR Jan 4 '13 at 15:00

You won't be able to perfectly measure the number of calories you consume every day. Your best bet is use a website, such as MyFitnessPal to get a rough estimate.

    That's okay, though, right? Often, people leave comments that are better said as an answer. – user4644 Jan 4 '13 at 18:52

    I agree. I think this answer is accurate in terms of the question, even if it is just a summation of the comments on the question. – Nathan Wheeler Jan 4 '13 at 19:03
