Are you wanting to lose weight and keep it off?  If so, one of the worst things to do is to count calories.  Counting calories will make you overly consumed with food, and will likely cause you to deprive your body.  Instead of counting calories learn to listen to your body and fuel it with food that will give you the energy you need.  Counting calories is short term, learning to recognize your body’s hunger cues and nourishing your body will last a lifetime.
