Is counting calories necessary to lose lose weight?

Keep it simple! 

It all depends on your goals and how successful you want to be when trying to gain or lose weight.  I recommend keeping it simple by repeating the same meals.  These meals should be nutritionally balanced, but you should also know the calories that you are consuming.

It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a “diet” or “program”. It’s about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits.

To lose weight, you must use up more calories than you take in. Since one pound equals 3,500 calories, you need to reduce your caloric intake by 500 - 1000 calories per day to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week.

Once you’ve achieved a healthy weight, by relying on healthful eating and physical activity most days of the week (about 60—90 minutes, moderate intensity), you are more likely to be successful at keeping the weight off over the long term.

Losing weight is not easy, and it takes commitment. But if you’re ready to get started, I'’ve got a step-by-step program to help get you on the road to weight loss and better health.

Is sleep really that important for weight loss?

Sleep is more than an eight-hour slack-off period.

When you sleep, you integrate the information you collected during the day and, believe it or not, you problem-solve.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 35 percent of people are sleep deprived. And when you consider that the statistic for obesity is nearly identical, it’s easy to connect the dots and discover that the connection is not a coincidence.

Not sleeping enough—less than seven hours of sleep per night—can reduce and undo the benefits of your weight loss program, according to research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine
