It seems as though people love it or hate it, live by it or live without it. Julian Micheals had some unhappy responses when she once said calorie counting is "universal". I don't believe she said universal meaning its the right choice for everyone, but rather that it is a simple matter of measuring input and output, and therefore has the potential to work for everyone. I can understand both sides to counting and not counting and I agree that they both have their pros and cons. Kate Hudson has also recently admitted to calorie counting and says it seems to be working for her. So I'm curious, when your trying to shed a few pounds, which method works best for you?
