What is your recommended daily calorie intake? Should you count your food calories?
Of course, but does it really work? The answer is No. Counting calorie alone does not work because ultimately it matters where those calories come from; these matters more than the number of calories ingested. This calorie-focus got us into more trouble in the first place.
Then what you should be focusing on?
Burning more calories each day than you consume may have been the diet advice, but that does not work for everyone. Instead, the focus should be on eating whole foods and avoiding processed foods. Looking only at calories ignores the metabolic effects of each calorie; the source of the calorie changes how you digest it and how you retrieve energy from it. Protein, carbohydrates and fat have their own significance in making your food healthy. Eating products labeled “fat free” Or following “low carb diets” is not universal and needs to be evaluated as per individual’s goal behind following a planned diet.
