    I'm gonna start counting my calories to try and get rid of my 'man flab.'

    I have a few questions:

    Is keeping a diary of what I consume a good idea?

    How many calories should I cut to start off with?

    Are there any sources on the internet that will provide me with nutritional information about every food substance (i.e. chicken = ***cals **protein etc.)?

    -yes, a food journal is very important.

    -i would first play with the % of the foods before cutting calories.

    -just go buy a book. what its like $5 or something like that. and well worth every dollar!
