Do I need to count calories to lose weight

I don’t think all calories are created equally. Some of the foods that we eat cause us to retain excess water and others help us feel fuller longer. If you are eating processed foods the chemicals can have any number of effects on your health and weight that you may be unaware of.

When people switch to a whole foods diet, they generally can lose weight without counting calories. However, some people like to know that if they’ve gone to the trouble of trying a diet they want to be sure they are going to lose weight.
