Did anyone see the article on the news yesterday stating that counting calories has an adverse effect on our health. New thinking is that it increases the chances of dietary relapse and we should in fact just be following a Mediterranean diet.
It also stated that the NHS should be made reevaluate its advice on counting calories to lose weight. Research shows most return to bad habits and actually increase their original size. This yoyoing is actually more damaging to our bodies than just being overweight.
