A dear friend of mine, loves counting calories. I on the other hand have made a life of ridiculing the practice. I eat what I want when I want. I have always maintained a moderation is the key philosophy. However it is kind of hypocritical for me to continue to act as such when the world is hungry. I always have been vigilant about food waste but recently someone mentinoned to me their experience with counting calories for medical reasons.
I am not going to do this, as I just don’t believe it, just as I never weigh myself. However I do see the value and thus am blogging it here. Counting calories apparently forces you to eat less. Eating less in this western world is a huge plus.
We eat too much food.
So if counting calories helps you learn to eat less, then by all means try a counting calorie program for 30 days. If you have a smart phone or itouch you can get apps with databases to help you out. Our recommendation is: “My Fitness Pal”
