Counting Calories - Something You Should Avoid For Long Term Weight Loss

A very large percentage of the diets on the market today require you to count calories. Contrary to popular belief, studies show that people who count calories on average are the least successful dieters. Think about the last diet you went on, did you enjoy it? It is very robotic and obsessive to have to pre-measure and pre-calculate everything you eat. It is very unnatural and takes the joy and spontaneity out of eating. People want to be able to go out to eat once in a while with family and friends without worrying about the food they are eating.

Find Out How To: Lose Weight Dieting Only 3 Days a Week

Being overly obsessive about food leads to unhealthy binging cycles. Sure you might be motivated initially to follow your new calorie counting diet and be excited to see the pounds start coming off, but can you really see yourself counting calories forever? After a few weeks of your diet you will start to crave your favorite foods, pasta, chicken, burgers, fries and pies. Not being able to eat these comfort foods will create a negative relationship with foods.

Learn About Partial Dieting: The New Diet Method

If you are looking to lose weight for the long term, your best bet is finding a diet that doesn't require you to count calories, doesn't restrict entire food groups and give you enough freedom to enjoy life normally. There really is no point in starting a diet that you know you can't continue. One diet program that I do recommend is the "Every Other Day Diet" this new diet allows you to eat your favorite foods 50% of the time and the other 50% is spent eating fat burning foods. It is a pretty unique method of helping people lose weight, enjoy the foods they love and best of all maintain a positive relationship with food.
