How Many Calories You Should Be Eating

Let’s get really clear:


Lately I’ve stumbling upon messages in “social media land” encouraging you to ignore calories and eating intuitively. The messages often suggest that you can eat until you’re full and disregard calorie counting.

I am here today to tell you that is just not true.

IF you have specific goals you want to reach, calories DO MATTER.

Now, if you simply want to enjoy life and feel well, you can get away with disregarding calories. Just know that you might end up with a bit more body fat. And that’s totally fine, if you’re totally fine with that.

The problem I’ve been seeing is that women try to eat intuitively, but then are frustrated when they don’t reach their goal.

And I’m alllll about ending the frustration story!
