Counting Calories is one of the easiest and most effective ways to start losing weight fast. drink more water, cut your carb consumption and start lifting weights.

To be honest, I struggle with counting calories. It is too much hard work and takes up needless time. I realize it works for many but not me.

I just try to be sensible with my diet and avoid fattening foods. I also do a lot of walking. But back to what I eat: I stick to vegetables and healthy home-cooked meals. I don't eat much fruit, though. I don't really like fruit. I do tend to eat foods that are good for my gut, too. I won't eat brown bread or museli. I eat foods that keep my body comfortable and gives me energy. I eat for energy, so I can keep active in the daytime. I do sometimes indulge in mini cakes. But that is not often.

Back to counting calories: again, it is time consuming and doesn't take into consideration what foods have been eaten. For instance, I may have consumed 250 calories, but was that from a chocolate bar or bowl of steamed vegetables? It is subjective.

I'd advise anyone wanting to lose weight, do it their own way and re-train their eating habits. There is no short-cut to losing weight. I know it is boring, but effective weightloss must be done slowly over time.

Good post, it will always be relevant. It's a shame that people don't realize that their waste of energy is a waste of fat. The deficit will help get rid of the extra weight, but it is just as important to love yourself and accept yourself. Thank you!

Noom is meant to be a good diet programme. It claims to teach you how to eat right. Instead of drinking two shakes a day and eating a dinner at night, the programme shows you how to actually educate yourself about cooking, food and nutrition. I think it is a great concept. Because losing weight does work, but if normal habits are resumed, the weight piles back on and then some. BUT if you continue with the diet plan, you'll not regain the weight.

Weight gain does have a impact on self esteem, so Noom show HOW to keep it off. And - from what I can guess - is there is no meal replacement bar or shake in sight.
