Diet based on calorie counts may not be healthy, RD says
The "calories in, calories out" diet lets people eat as much as they want as long they consume fewer calories than they burn off, but registered dietitian Sonya Angelone says that might not be healthy. Angelone says weight loss is not just a math equation and what people eat is important as all calories are not metabolized the same.

Calorie counting may not be best way to track diet, RD says
Registered dietitian Abby Langer says calorie counting can provide an overall view of what people eat in a day but the downside is that people do not know how many calories they really need and calorie counts on packaging can be off by up to 20%. Keeping a food journal that notes the foods eaten, timing and emotions felt when eating can help people track their diet without having to dig into numbers, Langer says.
