Why Counting Calories Never Works

The old idea that is still true...
Patients underestimate portion sizes and don’t count their snacks and beverages.
BUT even when I fixed that problem in 2008 by teaching classes on calorie-counting to gifted students, still, no one lost weight. There must be other reasons for the failure.
New ideas for you...
It depends on what type of food the calorie is in, what foods the food is combined with, and the state of the individual eater, whether fed, overfed or fasting. The saying "a calorie is a calorie" is not true.
even though they have no calories. Sweet flavor itself is fattening even if you don’t eat. The weight-gain from diet soda has nothing to do with making you hungry. There is no reason for diet soda or artificial sweeteners to exist.
from overeating and snacking, no one breaks down fat no matter how much they exercise. Insulin blocks lipolysis.
