I couldn't agree more. Above all, never drink soda. Sugar sweetened beverages (sodas, energy drinks, juices, etc) are your enemy when you're trying to achieve or maintain a healthy weight.

In brief: Track: Quan.&Results

Since body weight is a direct result of mass taken in versus mass output, remainder retained, track body mass (weigh using same scale) daily (while you can still remember food eaten); record so that you can directly see the results of the choices you implemented, day in/day out.
Calories are units of heat, have zero mass, are Not the correct issue, imprecisely measured & thus quite misleading.
