I've seen lots of people say you don't have to count calories. I take this to mean that you don't want to set a budget of say 2000 calories and the second you hit it you done eating for the day.
I do record my calories. I want to to know what foods provide with the appropriate vitamin, mineral and energy contribution. I don't have a budget. I have the rare 3000 plus day, and some as low as 1100.
How do others feel about this?
