Raise your hand if you ever attempted to or religiously performed calorie counting. Raise your hand if you swore by that as a fool-proof method to shed those nasty, stubborn pounds OR to increase your lean muscle mass. If I would ask you this question right now, would you nod your head “yes?’ What if I asked you if you are using calorie counting right now as a method in your “healthy” diet plan. Would you still nod “yes?” My bet is that many of you are. With fad diets and nutritional systems on an all-time high and with all the information overload on proper nutrition and weight loss (gain), my bet is that more than likely you are being (sub)consciously coached to do so. I know that I swore by it for years and did it for varying results, depending on my goal at the time. As the years went on and I still couldn’t grasp the “whys” of not being able to obtain my fitness and health goals, even though I was calorie counting, I decided to dig a little deeper and actually understand calorie counting, if I was doing it correctly, why I wasn’t obtaining my goals, and why the hell I felt so awful and tired all the time. What I learned was astonishing!
