None of those pesky numbers, since we all are different.
One person can need 1400 a day, while another can need 2,500, and it can be really triggering to see someone ate a lower number than yourself.
Therefore, just list the food you ate. This will help us understand the value of eating healthy food (for the nutrients), while also indulging moderately in empty calories when we want. I don't know about you, but I'm aiming for 90% healthy foods - and 10% empty calories. ;)
Also, do not post here if you are starving yourself. I'm not interested in the details, it is only going to get others riled up, and it is triggering to those of us trying to recover from an eating disorder. Okay, thank-you.

The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
