Video of the Week: Calorie Counting – Is It Right For You?

by Jordan Syatt December 22, 2012

This past week I asked my friends and followers across various social networks to give me their opinions of calorie counting. Actually, all I wrote was:

Calorie Counting

Yes/No? Why?

Within minutes I got a huge response. People were commenting left and right, getting into arguments, and ferociously debating over personal opinions and beliefs. It was honestly a great experience and I think many people – including myself – learned a lot from it.

After the comments began to subside I thought it would be nice to tell people how I feel about calorie counting; to offer my insight on the topic and perhaps help people make an educated decision. As a result I made the video below: Calorie Counting: Is It Right For You?

I hope you enjoy the video and, as always, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, leave them in the comments section at the end.

Never Minimal. Never Maximal. Always Optimal.

P.S. As promised, here is a link to Matt Perryman’s article, A Calorie Isn’t a Calorie (?). It’s truly a fantastic read and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

P.P.S. If we aren’t friends already, feel free to friend me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter, and join me on Fitocracy.
