Do you check the calories of the food you buy or eat?

Though everyone wants to be fit, there are many times or almost all the time when people I know never care about their calorie intake.They wanna lose weight and get rid of all those flabs, yet they wanna eat all that tastes good which lasts only for seconds in their mouth.I don't understand how straying away from pleasing the tongue for a few seconds is so hard even when the want to look good is more.As for me, I have never been overweight in my life. I am underweight for almost 3 years now, so i have never cared about what i eat. I am only hoping to gain weight because people say I look anorexic!!. I believe that there should be a balanced diet but have never tried it.Do you check the calorie content of the food you buy? Or just forget everything for that favorite taste in your mouth?

Haha,im the opposite of you.I need to burn fats.I have never check my calories intake before.What i know,as long as im hungry,if i want to eat..i don't eat too much.That's all. People have different ways in managing their body.Some may eat a lot,like you.. but still underweight.Its just the way your body react in the lifestyles.I heard stories of those underweight people try to gain weight by eating chocolate,ice cream but still their body have no changes.Instead of wanting to gain weight,they may get diabetes because of the sweet intake.

I don't check the calories, ever. I'm skinny already and i like to eat food with fat, and i eat everything that tastes good. I only look if the food i buy is light, or heavy.

I never check for calories in any food. I am skinny, nut I eat what I want and when I want. I don't like to eat sweets. I am vegetarian mainly on fruit and veggies. Counting calories is wrong to begin with. Food serving size is the key. In both cases, overweight and underweight, you have to eat small portion every 3 hours.
