Definately an important to know calories. But who has time to count all the calories of everything they eat. Better off getting a qualified nutritionist to give you a diet plan. My wife gets a weekly diet plan and also shopping list from her nutritionist. She found her at www.slimandhealthy.org .Fantastic , nutritious diet

It's not the calories that count. If your not eating enough cals your body wont expend much energy. On the other hand if your engaging in physical activity you will work up an appetite and become hungry. The real answer is controlling your hormones. Learn how to do so at Thin and thinner.net
