Is Calorie Counting necessary?
Really, now. Is it absolutely necessary for weight loss? I have tried a couple times to get into the habit, but the process always bores me. I even find it discouraging at times, especially if i eat a high calorie food that is also healthy. Any success stories where calorie counting was excluded? lol. no, really...
Nope I didn't count calories when I lost all my weight of 52 lbs within 8 months in combination with workout plus cardio back in time. I was eating simply low fat max. 30 gramm a day, almost no carbs three small portions a day, no sugar, eating clean, no processed foods, high proteins (fills you up very good) plus vegetables as much you desire. 3 meals a day and one small snack like 10 cashew nuts (healthy fat). Trust me if you change your old eat habit your body will be thankful. Ever since I keep my weight and cheat now and then it's a mind process and the will to rethink your food habits. Long term this is the only way how it works. Calories alone don't help you need to know what is good and bad so the eat clean method is a good start into this direction! Word! !! I tried many diets, pills and my weight went up horribly. I tried it also with calories counting if you pick the wrong food you are still hungry....
Please try MYFITNESSPAL it will help n make counting less difficult. IT ALSO GIVES U A GOAL N DAILY INTAKE LIMIT
as long as you know right from wrong food wise and don't binge, you'll be fine!
I think it's really important try it with "myfitnesspal" (u can get the app on playstore) Because you need to know what u ate in one day.
MyFitnessPal is a dairy for your food, weight and body mass. It's very helpful :)
I got into the practice of checking the Nutritional Facts on every package and Calories were a big factor. I can see other people have differing opinions. It doesn't really matter however since you burn a lot of the same calories when you exercise. It is not necessary but something worth keeping on your mind
I tried myfitnesspal.. its a good app.. been using it for almost 6 months now and it helped me manage the amount of calories i should take in a day.. i recommend it
You can still be skinny and die from a heart attack or diabetes. So you don't necessarily need to count calories just to lose weight. Personally, counting calories allow me to be aware of what I am eating. Sometimes a specific food can be low in calories, bit extremely high in sodium. Since keeping track of calorie intake is boring for you, try MyFitnessPal OR purchase this VERY useful book which I highly recommend for people who go to restaurants a lot. There's also other versions of this book that helps with grocery shopping and preparing food. It has a lot of pictures and gets straight to the point about food. You'll love it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B002M3SP6O
Hope this helps.
Personally, it never helped me. If anything, it made it worse and it became an obsession. As long as you feel like what you're eating is good and healthy, the calorie content doesn't matter!
I lost 25lbs with no calorie counting.
It's pure math,if you want to lose weight you must reach calorie deficit,and reverse of that! So you must calculate how much calories you need when not doing anything and how much you need when working out! You have BMR and TDEE calculators for that.
Depends on what you are looking for in your goal.
Calorie counting is not necessary simply because not all calories are created equal. A calorie from a price of chocolate cake is not going to do the same thing in your body from let's say chicken or a banana will do. A lower caloric intake is a small piece of a large puzzle. You can eat low a low calorie diet and gain weight BC if what you are eating, or you could eat a high calorie diet and lose weight it just depends on what you are eating and your activity level.
