I am tracking my calories and other nutrients as part of an effort to lose a few pounds.
I also have a whole blood donation scheduled today. If you aren't familiar with the process, afterward, they give you sugary and other kinds of food (like cookies or crackers) to help get your blood sugar up, since you just lost a big chunk of it.
Personally, I need a few of these snacks to feel better.
How should I account for these extra calories in my day? Should I ignore them and not record them? Should I record them and just accept I will eat more than usual? I can apply a calorie penalty to my tracking if that seems more reasonable.
I can't exercise them off, you generally aren't supposed to workout after a donation for about 12 hours, no weight lifting for 24.
