Are counting calories essential for weight loss?


Calculate all those calories

Counting calories or points is the central theme to many group programmes such as slimming world or weight watchers. The problem starts when the weight is lost, and normal life returns. Are you really going to be able to sustain this for the rest of your life? Have you actually addressed the fundamental reasons why you put on so much weight in the first place?

Unfortunately all the people I coach have not had lasting success with calorie controlled diets. Diets are temporary, but weight loss coaching personally changes your whole approach over time, and gives long lasting results.

If you want to nourish your body, mind and spirit, you need to concentrate on the big picture. For example, coconut, coconut milk and avocados are calorie dense, but offer a lot of healthy fats which ensure you are not constantly hungry due to fluctuating blood sugar levels. We need protein for the feeling of satiety, and vegetables and certain fruits (some are much better choices than others) for their fibre, vitamin and mineral contents. You could live off beans and rice and overall probably have a low calorie intake, but where’s the joy in that?

You might be able to lose weight on your own, but since you haven’t before, I highly recommend you get the support you need with a personalised weight loss programme with lifelong results.
