Calorie counting - it's hard to avoid when you need to be watching your weight. But with real calorie counting you need to know how many calories you consume in a day based on your eating habits. Then when you couple with your calorie burn you can work out whether the balance is right or not. This is one of the most important things to get right if you care about your health, and if you get it wrong, the results can be, well, huge.
Most people have no real idea what they consume or burn in a day. Conflicting information tells us that either fats are bad for us (low fat diets), or else they're good for us (the Atkins diet), or that carbohydrates should either be eliminated (Atkins again), or else that we should only eat certain kinds (GI diet). Similarly, it's hard to know what to think about the exercise we do. Fast or slow, low impact or high impact, resistance work or cardiovascular workouts - which will burn the most off our bottom line?
