When losing weight do you have to count calories?

I am trying to lose weight. I just do not have the time or the inclination to count calories. Do I really have to do this or is it okay just to judge for myself how much too eat?

    This may sound like a cliche, but just eat healthily. If you are not stuffing junk into your mouth (that’s usually the high-calorie stuff), then your body will end up actually Using the calories as energy instead of it turning to fat. Also, if you sick to an exercise regimen then you should be good to go .

    If you want to loose weight you need to eat about 2,000 calories. Have breakfast in the morning, toast with peanut butter, in the after noon your pasta, and fruits, and at night your meat, potatoe, and vegetables. Also for lunch fish is a good thing.

    Counting calories is the biggest waste of time you can do.

    It does nothing to tell you how well you ate that day. I could say I eat 2500 calories a day… what does that tell you? Nothing. It could have been 2500 calories of chocolate… or lean turkey and whole grains.

    Just eat right and exercise, and don’t step on a scale or count calories. You lose sight of your goal if you’re too caught up in eating exactly 1,320 calories a day or whatever.

    You don’t have to count calories but it sure helps you see if you are on the right track day to day. I’ll provide some basic info and you can judge from that if you might want to keep track or not.

    1 pound is equal to 3,500 calories.
    Your BMI is the basic number of calories you burn just because you are alive. There are online calculators to help you figure out what your BMI is.
    On top of your BMI daily routines, work, and exercise, increase the calories you burn.
    To loose weight you must burn more calories per day than you consume.
    You need to have at least 1,400 calories each day to maintain proper body function and muscle mass.
