A: Cutting calories has always been the gold standard for weight loss. Times are changing though. The truth is, if you cut calories you might
drop a couple of pounds, initially, but a habit of cutting calories will only slow your metabolism over time. Essentially you are under-feeding
yourself. In an underfed state, your body will slow down to protect itself, one way it does this is by hanging on to your stored fat. This
is not what you want, you want to burn that fat. So instead of being preoccupied with calories, it is better to focus on balancing the food
groups, increasing activity and watching portion sizes. Eating the right foods such as whole fruits and veggies, lean proteins and healthy
fats along with more frequent snacks and meals will help fuel and energize allowing your body to let go of those pesky fat stores. Phew,
you can all breathe a sigh of relief now, no more counting calories. There is a better way.
