When you say something like you should calorie count people look at you like you just told them to give up everything they love. I understand that it can sound like a chore, but there are some simple tips that will make calorie counting much easier to deal with.
First I’d like to talk about why you should calorie count if you are serious about losing weight and getting back in shape. I’ve said this before. If you need to save money the first thing you would do is see how much money you are spending and what you are spending it on. Think of calorie counting as budgeting for weight loss.
These are a few tips to make calorie counting easier.
In the immortal words of Henry Ford “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” on a similar vein if you think weight loss is difficult then it will be, if you think it’ll be easy then you are on your way to results.

I”m not into new age crap, but I know from experience that YOU are your worst enemy when it comes to making any change. A mindset is the first and most important thing you need to concentrate on. The good news is that it gets easier as you see results. Weight loss is like any other long term project, it looks too difficult and not worth the effort at the start. If you jump in and start the work after a while you will see that the destination is getting closer and your starting point is getting further away.
So jump in and believe you can get the results you want.
The Dead Simple Advice: Weight Loss and getting fit starts with a mindset, believe its easy and it will be.
I know there is an overload of diet and fitness information out there. When I decided to get my weight in check I felt like I was suffering from information paralysis. There is so much out there. Everyone seems to contradict each other. I hope to make this a resource for the simplest and most easily followed advice on Diet and Fitness.
In January of 2009 I was 210lbs, 24.7% body fat, and a BMI of 30.3. I was considered obese. This didn’t bother me but what did bother me was that I continued to gain weight. I decided to make a change. As of this post I weigh 174lbs I am officially no longer considered overweight. I will be getting my body fat checked on April 9th. I’ve lost most of my weight in the last 3 months. I don’t tell you this to brag, though I am proud. I tell you this to let you know where I was and how far I have come. I want you to trust what I say because it worked for me.
I’m not an expert, but I am a geek. I obsessed over weight loss and fitness for months. I read journals, scientific studies, blogs, books, and everything else I could get my hands on. I feel like I found the formula for what works.
