Calories Versus Food Quality
You may now be wondering about how many calories you should eat, or whether you should be counting calories. Well, I don’t believe in calorie counting, especially for the average person who is trying to lose weight.
Here’s why: Calorie counting does not differentiate between healthy food and unhealthy food. It’s just a numbers game. Let’s say you are supposed to consume 2,000 calories per day in order to maintain a healthy body weight. Do you really think you will be healthy and maintain that healthy weight in the long-term if you eat 2,000 calories of sugary, carbohydrate-rich foods instead of 2,000 calories of nutrient-rich fruits, vegetables and complete protein each day?
