I’ve always hated calorie counting, and there’s truly no need to if you maximize your calories. Even in my strictest (and most horrendous) dieting days, I always believed in quality over quantity when it came to calories. With all the scrumptious, filling, healthy foods out there, no one has to live off broccoli and carrot stick to lose weight. I promise! All you need to do is maximize the calories you eat. You wouldn’t waste your money on late fees or excess bills, right? Why waste your calories on worthless foods that have no nutritional benefit? No, that cereal that claims it’s high in fiber and a good source of vitamins is not healthy, but what is? A good bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon, almond milk, and stevia. That’s a healthy breakfast, and much friendlier to your body. Sure, per serving it might be higher in calories, but your body can use these calories better to burn fat faster than it can processed foods. Your body knows that calories from processed foods are not the same as calories from real food. When it gets the “good stuff,” it will spike your metabolism and allow your body to work at peak levels. So instead of counting all your calories, how about learning more ways to maximize your calories? Try some of my top tips to do just this, and stop dieting right now. There’s freedom without numbers and it comes in the form of delicious, healthy foods.

1. Focus on Real Food First Thing

Just like I said, one of the best ways to maximize your calories is to focus on real foods, especially for breakfast. No processed food. Diet bars? No. Granola? No. Sugary yogurt with fruit? No. Stock up on real stuff. Oatmeal, plain yogurt with fruit, lean protein from eggs, nuts, seeds, and carbohydrates from oats, quinoa, sweet potatoes, and winter squash. These foods are much friendlier to your body than all that sugary, processed stuff for breakfast.
