Here are three actual daily calorie entries:

(Subtract 350 calories burned on one hour of brisk walking)
Note the subtraction for the workout.
One more day:
Breakfast- 2 waffles 240, syrup 200- 440
Lunch- Chicken 240, beans 60- 300
Dinner- Sand- bread 130, ham 100, provolone 60, and soup 140-430
Snacks- Cereal 70, and more cereal 70- 140
A couple of other points about calorie counting. Sweets, alcohol and salty snacks, unless you can control your intake, can be killers for calorie counting.
You will probably find yourself beginning to make healthier choices because that food usually contains less calories and is more filling.
Finally, as with all weight reducing programs, don’t worry about messing up. Don’t fret if you don’t feel like trying it again. All of the times it doesn’t work will get washed away when you get a weight reducing plan right!
