The Secret to Weight Loss? Calories.

Click to Read

The Secret to Weight Loss? Calories. The truth is, all diets boil down to a simple formula-eating fewer Calories than you burn. Break that rule and all the carb-cutting, fat-banning, low-glycemic-index-eating in the world won't make a bit of difference. This is why weight-loss experts are now advocating a back to-the-basics approach: Calorie counting.

I'm really athletic too and I don't really count calories too much because I burn most of them off. Carbs aren't bad for you as long as you eat complex carbs and not refined ones that only add calories and no nutrition.

To answer Alethia, carbs aren't bad generally speaking. And like you said, it's giving you energy. Carbohydrates are the body's primary source of energy and good carbohydrates like whole grains are good for giving you a stable amount of energy, without the crash someone might get from using simple carbs for energy. It can also help keep someone full for awhile.

You know, I keep meaning to ask... I don't really count calories because I am thin (5'6" and about 112 pounds), athletic, and have a super-high metabolism. I run and lift weights 3 times a week, but even without exercise, I don't gain very much weight because I manage a restaurant and am on my feet 8-12 hours a day. My question: Are carbs and sugars bad for you if you are burning the calories off? I love bread and pasta, and sometimes I feel like the carbs give me the energy I need to get me through my busy day.
