Do you always check the calorie content or fat content of your food? For what reasons?

I never checked the nutritional facts for any of the food that I ate before I had my baby. I used to love fast food and desserts. However, that has changed since I became pregnant because I had to watch what I eat. My blood sugar was in the high normal level. Despite gaining just the acceptable number of pounds during my pregnancy, I had to cut down on calories, carbohydrates and fats. Thus, the habit just continued on until I delivered my baby. I was nursing him, too, which gave me more reasons to keep my diet low in sugar and fat. That does not mean that I don't indulge in Big Macs and ice cream once in a while. They'rer just too good to give up entirely.

i rarely do. most of the time, i eat fruits and veggies and im pretty sure that those foods are healthy. but sometimes i do eat some processed foods, just to reward myself sometimes. i won't deprive myself from the good and yummy foods out there. i don't watch at the fat or calorie content of the food since it would just make me conscious and guilty when i eat it and i might lose my appetite.
