I understand that if I control my calorie intake, it will be easier to lose weight. Unfortunately, I find it difficult to keep track of my calories. The foods I eat are not always listed the exact same way in some of the calorie counting apps. I also think it is too time consuming. Is there any easier way to estimate calories?
Yep!!! I've written about this, using a simplified counting approach to count protein, fat and carbs without calories. It gets you quite close to your daily calorie needs, and requires a pair of electronic scales for some foods, you don't count leafy veggies and broccoli and that type of thing.
It's also discussed at length in my free ebook in my signature below, or you can get it on Kindle for 74 pence!! https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00KPVJVQI

Also useful is an article on eyeballing food when eating out, although you can do it at home too http://www.leanerbydesign.com/2014/0...out-on-a-diet/
