Counting Calories Works for Everybody
Unless a doctor or medical professional or somebody familiar with your medical history and conditions has told you that counting calories will not work for you, then it will.
Counting calories works for everybody.
I don’t like making such divisive statements, but it’s shocking that it’s divisive to begin with or something that people question to be true. It’s sad that I have to defend such a statement. A calorie isn’t some voodoo term or another marketing pitch, a calorie is just a unit of energy. It’s the fuel for your body. It’s the gas that keeps you going. If you start consuming less, your body adjusts overtime — it gets smaller. It’s physics.
Doubting it is like saying if you throw something in the air, it won’t come down.
With that said, there are people that have certain medical conditions and have to limit themselves to eating certain foods due to diabetes, high blood pressure, etc, and of course, you need to do what you need to do. But the simple fact remains that counting calories, also known as eating less, works for the general population. If you’ve tried eating less and it didn’t work for you, you’re either a very rare exception (medical condition) or you simply were not watching your calories closely enough.
I’d tell you which I think is more common of the two, but you already know.
