I like to eat the Jennie-O sun dried tomato lunch meat that I get sliced in the deli. It says 50 calories per 2oz serving.
I'm a little confused about how many slices that would be so I assumed it = 1 regular sandwich meat slice of turkey? So every time I have 1 slice of turkey I add another 50 cals to my log.
Can anyone tell me if I'm doing this correctly, or if I'm cheating myself out of some calories? Approximately how many slices would be around 2oz? I'm so lost.
OR. like claire suggests, get a scale ;) I use mine all the time.
I bought deli meats that said they were 'about' 50 cal per slice but when I weighed them and did the math according to the actual weight they were 40 cals per slice. That's a big difference if you have several slices every day for lunch, and again for snacks...
So yes, if you buy prepackaged meat of any sort and can't do the deli scale trick, gotta weigh it.
two ounces is anywhere from 5-10 thin deli slices of meat
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.
