Life is not exact: 1060 calories and 1100 calories are the same number of calories in real life. Life is not exact. One can probably count the best she can count, and still not have to worry about differences of less than 200 calories per day.

Life is a balance: The number of calories eaten, digested, and absorbed into one's body is only HALF of the equation. Life is in a balance. Each day (or each week), life looks at the balance: what is the total calories absorbed minus the total calories used up? If the balance is more than zero, there is newly stored fuel (such as fat). If the balance is negative, then stored fuel was used (body weight decreases).

Doubtful : That's about 100 extra calories. Which equates to 1/36th of a pound of body weight. It's doubtful you'd notice this on the scale. But keep this up every day, assuming your activity level is unchanged, you could gain almost one pound per month.
