Calories - to count or not to count?

I keep getting asked about calories so here goes...

Some people live their life by them, others 'don't have time'.

Some people will say calorie counting is unnecessary, some will say it's vital for fat loss.

What's the truth?

As always there are different 'truths' depending on your personal situation.

It is true that you can lose body fat without counting how many calories you are eating each day.

However, I have found this only to be true for those who are very controlled about their eating and have gone through a lot of trial and error to get there!

I have heard many people say that they don't need to count calories but when they finally get annoyed at not losing body fat and give it a go, they find out they are eating far too many calories (once all the cheeky snacks and fizzy drinks are noted!).

Alternatively, some find they are undereating so much that their bodies go into starvation mode and start to protect body fat as part of an age-old defence mechanism.

It is for this reason that I created a nutrition system which uses an automatic calorie counter (at Level 3 of 5) to tell you how much you should be eating each day based on your height, weight, age and lifestyle. That way the 'trial and error' has already been done for you to save you time!

Once you have done this for a few weeks, you soon learn how to control portion size to keep you in the calorie deficit which is definitely, undeniably, without question, required for fat loss.

It's a bit like driving a car. For the first few weeks or maybe months, you have to concentrate really hard on doing everything right. However, you soon find yourself able to do it with ease - to the point that it doesn't take you any longer to prepare food than it did when you poured anything down your throat!

But the results will be much more spectacular!

So how many do YOU need?

Today I'm going to open up the calorie calculator page of the Storm Force Nutrition system - all you need to do is stick in your stats and it will immediately show you how many calories you need for fat loss.

Once you've done that, count how many calories you eat for a whole day and see what the difference is.

Beware, you may be shocked!

Don't forget, as a Storm Force Fitness member you only go to the level you feel is appropriate for your lifestyle and the results you want to achieve. You might choose to still avoid the calorie section and still get impressive results, by using the carb rotation and healthy recipe section!

The training, flexibility and abs systems work exactly the same so they work every time!

You get out of life what you put in!

Go to the calorie calculator (this is only available until Tuesday 26th August 18.00)

Live life in the fast lane,
