Almost everywhere you read, people tell you to consume approximately 500 calories less or more to lose or gain weight. I'm trying to shed some body fat, I'm not concerend at how much I weigh. So what will happen if I train really hard every day, and continue with my current eating habits.(Which by the way is sort of healthy)

Its 80% of being fit rest is fitness. Im a personal trainer and working out like a beast makes no difference if your eating poorly

And I don't call it a diet, I don't make clients go on crazy diets I call it healthy eating. You just have to eat right, don't need to eat less

Nutrition is of the utmost importance. A good way to waste time is for you to work out and have a bad diet.

How good should it be? I'm not following a particular diet, but I don't eat take aways, I cook with no oil or butter, no breads, no fuzzy drinks and I eat fruit and veggies every day. Drink a lot of water and also try to incorporate different kinds of protein.

Sounds like you are doing pretty well now. The importance of proper nutrition affects your ability to work out and the results you get. True you can eat poorly and get results but you force your body to work harder.

Sometimes you consume a good nutritious diet without realizing it.  Looks like you are on the right track... so I'd say just continue on with your current diet.

Nutrition is very important. Abs may be made in the gym but their shown in the kitchen. So just make sure you eat healthy no processed junk and you'll be fine!

To be honest the importent of nuetrition are somewhat hyped up. Yes it's really importent you can build a pritty solid body by eating somewhat healthy. Yes if you want to loose weight it's best to be 3-500 kcals under maintenance and to gain you should be 500 kcals over, but as long your getting your vitamins, your macros and in general awoid eating things thats really bad fore (like candy and to much junkfood) you should be fine. You dont have to eat like a Pro athlet to get in shape as long your generelly healthy :)

Ur diet isn't truly healthy ... unless it is meeting your daily macro nutrients... the 500 number is a ratio...a mathmatical eqaution to give and average person a baseline tht will create small enough deficit only in relation to the first mathmatical eqaution which is an estimation of an individuals personal caloric information tht is healthy ..... by not changing your diet which tho not exactly sound nutrition isn't exactly hamburger and french fries either and I'm guessing you on an average consume as much as your body needs to about slightly over which tells me you have good eating habits so working out for you without increasing your caloric intake nor lowering your caloric intake will produce some results seeing as exercise burns calories you'd create a deficit by activty esp. If your being more active then you would b on average

In order to lose a pound you need to burn overall 3000 calories... so grab a calorie count app... have your daily intake and try to have a calorie deficit of 3000 a week or week and a half... better slow and steady.

3500 Calorie = 1 Pound exactly
