Why Counting Calories Isn’t Doing You (Or Your Waistline) Any Good

Guest writer for Savoir Flair this week, if you would like to learn more on why counting calories isn’t doing you (or your waistline) any favours, check out the article here 

Over fad diets? Who isn’t! The secret to never going on a fad diet again and avoiding the weight-loss-weight-gain-weight-loss cycle is to switch your mindset from counting calories to counting nutrients. The latter is much more enjoyable than counting calories as you get to focus on the quality of the food that you’re putting into your body and how your body feels once it is digested.

By choosing to focus your attention on eating nutrient-rich foods, you will start to feel lighter, more energetic, and healthier. You’ll find that you recover quicker from workouts, have a stronger immune system, and – most importantly – feel happier. No more of the “food guilt” that often goes hand in hand with calorie-restrictive diets. Foods that are rich in nutrients are also beauty foods, so you’ll notice that your skin is clearer, your hair is shinier, and your fingernails are stronger. There’s also the added bonus of a leaner figure. Read the rest of the article on Savoir Flair by clicking here
