I have never counted calories. I always just eat alot and stop when I'm full. I would think that I eat about 2,500 calories a day but for all know I could really be taking in alot less or alot more than that.

I want to start eating 3,000 calories a day as my bulking diet and I intend to count every calorie so I know EXACTLY how many calories I eat a day.

For drinks like milk and whey protein its easy because all you need is a measuring cup and to read the labels.

But what if I eat an apple or a bannana or say I go to the store and buy a sub with all the fixings on it? Do I weigh it? What if I order take out chinese food, how am I supposed to know how many calories there are in it?

Should I buy a special scale?
