Calories do count.
Regardless of the debate, keeping track of the calories in is really important. If you don’t know where your calories are coming from, you can’t adjust your intake.
2. Fat, sugar, carb, nutritional info is just as important.
Knowing how the nutritional content of your food is broken down is really important. Your full day of calories should not be all fat, or sugar, or without a balance of nutrients. We will talk later on label reading for nutritional info.
3. Portion size is key.
Just because there are portion sizes on packages doesn’t mean that is what we actually consume. Make sure that your portions are actually the size you think they are. Use a scale, measure cup or measure spoons.
