Counting calories is something that must and should be done.
Once you become experienced and you know your body VERY WELL, you won't have to count calories every day.
For example, my diet is so structured, I know exactly what I am eating each day and how many calories are in each meal.
Until you gain more experience, you MUST keep track of the amount of calories you are eating.
There is no way around this.
Any muscle building and/or fat burning program that doesn't require you to count calories is a program that just won't work as well as one that requires you to count calories.
Are You Eating Enough? Are You Eating Too Little?
You've got to know what you're taking in and the results you receive with that particular calorie intake.
From there, you can optimize your results by adjusting your calorie intake when needed.
Your calorie intake controls the results you receive.
If you aren't taking in enough calories on a muscle building cycle, you are wasting your time. If you are taking in too many calories on a fat loss cycle, you are wasting your time.
I don't want you wasting your precious time, so you must count calories. It's not hard… it's going to be very easy for you.
Don't Be Lazy … Let's Do This
If you're one of those stubborn people who just won't count calories, please re-consider.
What if I told you that you can get ANY results that you want if you count calories. If you want more muscle, it's possible. If you want less body fat, it's possible. All possible because you are counting calories.
The fastest possible results can only be achieved by counting calories — there's just no way around this.
And I will help make this task much easier for you. So, please start counting calories every day from here on out.
You can start practicing today.
All you have to do is spend a few minutes each night inputting the quantity of foods you ate that day into a spreadsheet I am going to provide for you.
I use this same method and spend around 2 minutes or less every night.
Or, you can use a free website such as FitDay to count calories. Just go to Fitday.com and sign up for a FREE account. Simply enter the foods you eat each day.
This will give you some practice.
DailyBurn.com is another good online food log you can use for free.
Keep reading through the website because I have a tool later on that will make counting calories even easier:
A Free Calorie Counting Tool Can Be Found Here on the Website
Simply enter the amount of calories, protein, carbs, and fat from nutrition labels into your personal spreadhseet.
Once you enter that information for each food that you eat, the info is saved in your spreadsheet.
All you have to do is change the quantity of the foods eaten each day — when you eat something new, you must enter information for that food into your spreadsheet.
Not knowing how many calories you are eating is like going somewhere you've never been before without a map. You might eventually find your way there and you may never find your way.
Your journey will take a much longer amount of time. With a map, you can drive straight to your destination and save lots of time in the process.
What are you going to do?
Take the right path and start counting calories today. You will be very happy that you did once you see the muscle building and fat burning results you receive.
Tips for Counting Calories
Start getting familiar with nutrition labels. Whenever you eat something, look at the label.
I am so accustomed to foods and food labels that I can guess how many calories are in ANY meal and get very close.
When you eat out somewhere, you aren't going to know how many calories you have eaten unless the restaurant has nutrition facts online somewhere.
Most food at restaurants is not going to be very good for you… so I recommend never eating fast food and only eating at certain restaurants very infrequently. This way… counting calories will be much easier for you.
If you make your own food at home, you will know EXACTLY what you are eating. You can see the nutrition labels and put them into your spreadsheet.
