    I do but i'm trying to stop. I noticed I'm eating less and less and it's really not healthy. I'm also obsessing over it. So, tomorrow's new years, new beginning. Won't be counting calories. *promise*

    I pretty much just eat whatever I like, in moderation. I usually only eat one meal a day, but I snack on things like fruit and cereal throughout the day to get the necessary amount of calories, and I try to get in some exercise at least once a week. I try to limit the amount of junk food I eat and the only time I really pig out is when I'm at the buffet.

    YES.......But more importantly, grams of fiber and grams of Protein.........This should cause the Calories to fall into place...!

    I don't need to count calories. I eat healthy foods and I avoid breads and sweets.
    The key is eating smaller portions. I don't snack or drink soda unless it's diet.
    I also NEVER eat at night.

    You don't need to if you just watch how many times you eat a day and make sure your foods provide GOOD calories, not EMPTY calories.

    Taking a nutrition class in college, and it has really opened my eyes. Instead of gaining the freshman 15, people keep saying how it looks like I've lost weight! I'm still a lazy asss, I just pick foods that keep me full longer and remember the effects of eating certain foods. Like after eating an apple or broccoli (I love broccoli!) I feel way better and energized than the greasy fat feeling I get after eating a glorious custard filled, chocolate donut.

    I could NEVER diet, but realizing what foods make me feel better an hour later instead of for a temporary 3 minutes, has helped. Also knowing that hunger is physiological and appetite is on psychological (like how after you eat meal and are full but then smell cookies and decide you're hungry for those now). Distinguishing the difference between my hunger and appetite is helping a ton too!!! I do a lot of bored eating, but now that I'm realizing it, I'm trying to restrain those urges when I'm not even hungry and hopefully eventually eat only when my tummy needs it. You NEED calories, especially if you're active. Crash diets suck ears.

    I did for a month or so a couple of years ago when the Air Force wanted me to lose ten pounds, but generally no.

    To explain the above, apparently being one pound under the weight limit for one's weight and build is not acceptable. The Air Force requires you to be ten pounds under the limit. To which my response was: "Well then that's not really the limit, is it?"

    Yes but by the same token you can have as little fat on you as possible but without exercise your muscles won't be defined and your stomach will just look smooth and flat.

    I eat meals of appropriate size, and compensate if something isn't so good for me.

    Example: Ramen noodles. High in sodium - compensate by drinking extra water. Also compensate with some extra exercise, if necessary.

    I'm mindful of calories, but I do not count them. I do not have calorie limits, for example.

    Works for me. 47 pounds lost so far, 10 or so to go. Holding steady as my muscles build.
