“Calculating your daily calorie intake is more necessary today than ever before.”
Should you count calories? Well, I’m usually NOT a supporter of it. Why? Because people often get way too hung up on the numbers. And calories are just one small piece of the nutrition puzzle.
Instead I’m all about intuitive eating, which is eating foods that sound good when you’re hungry. Though I do still suggest reaching for nutritious foods first and making them the majority of what you eat. Intuitive eating allows you to be more mindful of how you’re feeling and what you’re craving, and discourages the intensive tracking that comes with dieting.
But sometimes it’s good to have a check-in and make sure your habits are on the right track. Because you may eat healthy the majority of the time, but your intuitively eaten half pint of ice cream every night could be sabotaging your health goals.
