I'm on a mission to stop you from obsessing about calories.
You've been told your entire life that to lose weight you need to reduce your caloric intake. But let me ask you this... how's that working out for the average dieter?
I know for me, when I stopped obsessing about calories is when I effortlessly dropped weight. But how is this possible?
Here's an interesting article that might help explain why counting calories isn't the best way to lose weight. In fact, it's probably detrimental to your health... both physically and mentally.
Here are some bullet points to consider from this article...
- The quality of food you eat is far more important than the quantity.
- Reduce the amount of added sugar, refined grains, and highly processed foods.
- Eat plenty of vegetables and whole foods.
- Stop worrying about calories and portion sizes!
- You can change the relationship you have with food.
Here's a link to the article for you to take a look at...
I think the best quote from the Doctor in the article is this one...
“I think one place we go wrong is telling people to figure out how many calories they eat and then telling them to cut back on 500 calories, which makes them miserable,” he said. “We really need to focus on that foundational diet, which is more vegetables, more whole foods, less added sugar and less refined grains.”
Will you join me on a mission to stop worrying so much about the quantity of food you eat and to start focusing on the quality of food you eat. And don't deprive yourself of things that are going to make you feel good. Just be smart and use that big, beautiful brain you have to guide you.
Much love - Misty.
