Should I count calories or measure my food? Eating a whole food plant-based diet and knowing which pre-made foods are ok gives you the ability to eat to that sweet spot: when you’re not too full to stand up, but won’t be hungry again in 30 minutes. Basically, you’re free to eat as much as you need to. The amazing thing is that eating can be so simple. We often put way too much energy and thought into what we eat and sometimes for good reason. Counting calories has been used as a weight loss tactic for years and is still being used by many weight loss programs today. Does it work, sure. But do you really want to be restricted to a certain number of calories all day every day?
