How many people here keep an exact count of your calories everyday? I am trying to do it to make sure I get enough everyday and it is getting kind of hard. For some things its easy, but for other food I find I have to guess a lot. Is it really important to know exact amounts, or is it enough to know a general amount and be within a certain range?
I am trying to gain weight, and I would like to take my time and do it with as little fat gain as possible, so how many extra calories should I be eating a day? From what I have read it seems like around 500 or so for a total of about 2500 to 3000. Does this sound about right? I currently weigh 170 lbs. I would like to eventually get up to 200, but I don't want to rush and get fat.
