Can You Really Count Calories? (Part V of "There Is No Such Thing As A Calorie")

I agree with what you say, and I've even lost a couple of pounds once after I overate fat for two days while watching movies all day long, BUT for practical purposes controlling your food intake by approximately counting calories can be useful when your train is already on track and moving forward but you want to be lean, i.e.:

it works even better combined with weight lifting but it just works if you do it the smart way by cutting sugars/carbs first. then eating less food is much easier.

Complexity is wonderful...unless you're trying to prove how smart you are by spouting sciency-sounding oversimplifications!



If it first you don't succeed, blame your failure on the unwashed masses, who are clearly too stupid to understand why your plan is foolproof!  Then, double down on failure by implementing educational programs...and, if that doesn't work, simply force people to implement your failures.  Do this well enough and your country can become as successful and prosperous as China during Mao's Great Leap Forward.

As a 27 year old with zero job experience, whose knowledge comes entirely from career academics who have never themselves worked outside academia, she's totally qualified to implement this plan.



I agree that deliberately reducing food quantity can help, but it's the last thing you do...and I don't recommend counting "calories" to do it.  You'll see what I recommend in future installments.
