F2FHQ 117 - To Count or Not to Count


Counting calories is out of fashion.  We aren't supposed to worry about getting too many if we are getting lots of nutrient dense foods.  But what if you're getting a lot of nutrient dense foods and it isn't very many calories at all? Somehow that is a bad thing.  This week we talk about this double standard and the possible negative implications of going below your recommended caloric intake.

Welcome to the Fat2fit HQ podcast!  We are your hosts, Carol and JT of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast, we are chronicling our journeys from Fat 2 Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle, not only in diet but in all areas of life.

You don't have to participate in a challenge.  Just come on over to our chat board and check in when you can.  You’ll find inspiration there and just checking in might give you that little bit of accountability that will make a difference.  No eating or exercising rules, we just want to tell folks what we are doing or just say hi and maybe read about how others are doing it.  Being around like-minded folks DOES make a difference.  Join us!

Thanks to all listeners that are sharing the show on Facebook, twitter, Google+ and other social media outlets!  You are making a difference!
