To hit my Macros and Calories for the day I need a midday snack that equals 400-500 calories of mostly carbs. Any suggestions? I was thinking of having a plain bagel with some strawberry jelly, but didn’t know if this was “healthy”.

My first bulk

So earlier I have made some posts about me cutting (Going from 78kg(171 pounds) to 68kg (150 pounds)).

I have then decided...

How can you guys track Calories to within 100?

I see some people talk about eating "200 Calories" over maintenance and stuff like that. How can you possibly estimate that with such precision? (Especially if you cook or measure things out by eye). Is it true that some people know their Calorie intake to within 200 Calories?
