If counting calories doesn't work -- stop!

Filed under: ,

Calorie counting can be a major pain, even with handy tools like Fitday.com. I mean, come on -- who really wants to measure every piece of food and make note of every single ingredient that we put into our meals? If you share my distaste for calorie counting, breath a sigh of relief for this article, which says that if calorie counting just isn't working out, you should quit. Seriously.

But that doesn't mean you're off the hook. You're still going to have to watch what you eat -- but this time, use visual cues to decide what constitutes a portion of what and be very stringent about what extra ingredients you are adding to your healthy foods. Still, with these tips, you can find a good balance -- without all the math.

How do you size up your food and lose weight without counting calories?
