Up until this year I’d always dismissed the idea of calorie counting. My approach to weight control has always been to just eat well most of the time and then allow myself some naughty cheat days in moderation when needed. Earlier this year, however, I was going through a bit of a tough time and suddenly all of my resolve went out of the window.
