The “surprising” problem with calorie counting – part 2

As promised, here is part 2 of the nice little two-story infographic on calorie counting by Precision Nutrition.

Whereas the first one nicely illustrated 5 reasons as to why trying to count the calories that goes in is a waste of time, the one below shows why “calories out” also is close- to- impossible to determine somewhat precisely.

In short; you’re not your neighbour!

The “surprising” problem with calorie counting – part 1

Another nice infographic by Precision Nutrition.

In short, you should know that you have absolutely no idea about how many calories you are really absorbing; mainly because of individuality, imprecise calorie-descriptions and food preparation. That is good news! If anything, it´s an argument to save you the never-ending trouble of counting and weighing your food.

Part 2 is a nice read as well!
