85. Why I Don't Recommend Calorie Counting

If you’ve spent your life counting calories, obsessing over MyFitnessPal, or counting points that tell you how much you’re allowed to eat in a day in order to lose weight, you’re going to want to listen to today’s episode.

Calorie counting, counting points, counting macros… it’s all the same. It’s relying on some external influence to dictate how and what you should eat. It’s reducing your food experience down to math, instead of recognizing that you’re a human with emotional attachments to food, cravings and urges, and that food produces pleasure. 

On today’s episode of the High on Life Podcast, I explain why I don’t recommend calorie counting and what to do as a starting point instead.
