I was reading some articles today put out by Lifetime Fitness, where I used to work (before we moved across country). And I came across an article that I thought was rather interesting and wanted to get your take, sparkers. I have found Lifetime's advice to be scientifically sound and they do get results.
That definitely shares my perspective from the research I have done. It's not an exact science, but they have to give people a number because people don't like to hear ,"it depends." Everyone is unique, so they should like to hear that, but instead, they need a number. 368 days ago
I admit that I only skimmed it. But, what I got out of it is that with weight loss, calorie counting is not rocket science and quality of food is very important. However, it seems to be about what NOT to do and then does not really say what a person SHOULD do. I think it said or implied to eat fewer carbs, avoid processed foods, and eat whole foods from the earth. That, for me is a little vague. It really has no other guidance for what to eat (macros, nutrients,) and how much to eat. Maybe their intent in writing the article was only to show the limitations and misguidance of calorie counting. Maybe there are other articles about where to go from there. 372 days ago
