    Could someone please tell me how many calories would be in a small bowl of white pasta? (I know I should probably eat wholewheat but white is all that school does). I used a site to tally up my calorie intake for today but it only came to 400 calories which seems extremely low seeing as I'm not even that hungry so I'm convinced it must be wrong.

    calories in one cup of pasta are about 175...

    without measurig one cup of pasta looks like about the size of a tennis ball

    Ok, thanks, well it was probably slightly over that so I put it up to 200 calories but that still makes my calorie intake for today only 481! So my dinner, which will be the last thing I eat, will have to be over 700 cal to make my 1200 mark? And I thought restricting would be difficult!

    wholewheat toast-86 cal
    banana-107 cal
    pasta-200 cal-had a veg sauce on made from scratch
    digestive biscuit-88 cal

    dinner wil probably be grilled chicken and veg.

    Should I try and eat a bit more, or just keep it as this as long as I don't feel like I'm starving myself?

    don't push yourself to bring yourself over 1200 calories for the day - once in a while it's ok to be below that - but you want to really front load your day with more calories.. because it's when you expend the most energy...

    Hey Becca15!

    The thing that i do to bring my cals up (i eat 1500 cals a day) is to eat snacks between lunch and dinner, and sometimes after dinner :rolleyes:.
    depending on how much you burn, how tall you are ect. you should be eating at least over 1200, or else your metabolism will slow.
