In a nutshell, the article states that food has many qualities beyond caloric value. Food has vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and much more. Judging food soley on caloric value does not do it justice. Food reacts with other foods, as well as your body composition in how it is processed, and used in the body. We are all indivuals, and we need different compositions of macronutrients for health and wellness. Age, amount of exercise, amount of muscle, gender, stress, and more factor into what each of us needs-for weight loss or health.
Simply put, it's WAY more complicated than calories in…calories out. Counting calories just isn't that helpful. What is beneficial, is figuring out what you NEED-and then sticking to that, for slow steady weight loss, good health and wellness, or whatever your goal is.
