Calories are Stupid!

There is so much information out there that confuses the public and trainers alike and most of it is around calories consumed – how many, when, how many meals per day and its always useful to find someone who provides clear advice alongside easy to understand science!

So, when I read Charles Poliquin’s post on what Calories and  how they should be made up and why counting calories doesn’t work,  I just had to post it!

I have been really firm with clients  and friends for ages that it’s so much more than calories consumed but stock vector : No calories, diet food stickers set.people have been brainwashed by the diet industry to believe that low-fat and calories are all that matters when it comes to losing weight; its good to have a clear, easy to read and understand article that I can refer them to.

It would be good to know what everyone thinks, does calorie counting work for you?
