Are you sick of hearing the same annoying diet advice over and over?
“You should try a detox diet to lose weight faster.”
“Eat breakfast! It will boost your metabolism!”
“Carbs make you fat.”
Let me tell you the TRUTH about weight loss.
It comes down to calories. If you take in more calories than you burn, you’ll gain weight. If you burn more calories than you take in, you’ll lose weight.
Now, I know you’ve probably heard this too.
But it’s a scientific fact.
The only reason anyone ever loses weight on a diet, “fad” or otherwise, is that it results in a calorie deficit.
Let’s just pretend, for a minute, that the science is actually true.
That calories are king when it comes to weight loss.
Doesn’t it then make sense to have a good system in place to track said calories?
Inside Calorie Counting Made Easy, you’ll learn everything you need to know about how to count calories for weight loss.
Step-by-step screen recording video instructions that will show you how to get the most out of the best calorie counter on the internet
How to accurately count calories in less than five minutes a day so that you build a habit that will last a lifetime and prevent the rebound weight gain seen in “fad” diets
How to design a flexible eating plan that will help you lose weight while getting healthier and do it without feeling like you are "dieting"
And I’ll even address the big white elephant everyone is thinking about:
"Can you ACTUALLY eat whatever you want?"
Here’s the thing. Even though this is a course on calorie counting, the program goes BEYOND calories.
This is a lifestyle shift.
A new way to look at food.
Once you learn this stuff (which we never learned in school by the way), you will have your weight under total control and you will have the freedom to decide whether to continue tracking or not.
But you need to learn the fundamentals and practice in the beginning. That’s just how it is for everything in life.
Before you can do math in your head, you have to write out the problems on paper for a while.
By the time I was 25, I was the heaviest I’d ever been.
It was around this time that I decided to get my act together. I educated myself on health and fitness and, combining this with my love for numbers, I began tracking my nutrition.
At the time, my method was pretty rudimentary. I wasn’t even counting calories. I assigned a score for each of my meals based on how much I thought I ate.
But it worked.
Within a few months, I had lost 25 pounds of fat.
After that, I learned more precise and reliable ways to measure my food intake and I started counting calories. This is how I’ve been able to keep the weight off for over five years.
Here’s my secret:
For the last three years, I’ve been counting calories using a free app called MyFitnessPal, which is the tool that I recommend and walk you through in this course.
Maybe you’ve heard of MyFitnessPal. Maybe you’ve even signed up for it but have no idea how to make the best use of it.
Since I’ve started using MyFitnessPal, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve helped many people learn how to count calories effectively and efficiently.
I will show you how to do the same in this course, even if you don’t think you have the time.
Over the years, I have refined my calorie tracking system and streamlined it into a process that allows me to manage my weight on autopilot and requires less than five minutes a day of my time.
I shared this system in my book, Calorie Counting Made Easy, and this course takes it a step further with interactive lessons and tools to help you take action and get results.
What you'll get in Calorie Counting Made Easy:
Chapter 1: Calorie Counting 101 (Free)
This chapter is an introduction to calorie counting.
You’ll learn how weight loss actually works and why calorie counting is the best way to lose weight. You’ll learn why many people dismiss calorie counting and why you shouldn’t. Finally, you'll learn how to get started with MyFitnessPal.
Chapter 2: How to Count Calories for Weight Loss
In this chapter, you’ll learn the basics of MyFitnessPal.
The videos will walk you step-by-step through how to track your food in MyFitnessPal and how to adjust for calories burned from exercise so that you get credit for your hard-earned activity.
Chapter 3: The MACRO Economics of Calorie Counting
In this chapter, you’ll learn the importance of macronutrients in calorie counting.
First, we’ll understand what macronutrients are. Then, we’ll show you how to set macro targets that will provide a framework for a truly enjoyable weight loss plan. Finally, we’ll take a look at some common calorie counting mistakes and how to avoid them.
Chapter 4: Calorie Counting Shortcuts
In this chapter, you’ll learn how to save time counting calories in MyFitnessPal.
In order to stick with your tracking long enough to see results, you need a way to do it quickly every day. In this chapter, we’ll walk through several shortcuts that will cut your time spent counting calories to less than five minutes a day.
Chapter 5: Weight Loss Strategies for Optimal Health and Satiety
In this chapter, I’ll discuss some specific diet strategies you can use alongside counting calories.
Weight loss is no good if you’re going about it in an unhealthy way or making yourself totally miserable (which is also unhealthy). So let’s go over some tactics that will help you lose fat without even feeling like you’re on a diet.
You'll also get some special bonuses:
Bonus 1: Impostor Food Detector
This is a quick and easy tool you can use to make sure the foods you enter in MyFitnessPal are accurate. The last thing you want is to track diligently, put in the time and work, and still have your progress derailed by “impostor foods," which unfortunately, are common in MyFitnessPal.
This tool will prevent that from happening. Just keep it open when you do your tracking and you’ll be good to go.
Bonus 2: Intermittent Fasting Cheat Sheet
For those of you interested in experimenting with intermittent fasting, I’ve created a 4-page report for you that outlines the different stages of expertise with daily fasting and the steps you can take to go from newbie to ninja.
I currently fast daily for 6-8 hours after waking and I’ve never felt better. Plus, this makes it even easier for me to hit my calorie targets and still enjoy enormous meals.
"51 days building my habit. Learning more about macros and nutrients. Enjoying feeling honest with myself and the progress I am making. 11 loss so far. I can deal with that and don't feel cheated by not dropping weight faster. My goal is to do this for a year. It's something I think will benefit me and keep me conscious of my health. Thanks for the inspiration."
-Susan B. (Cape Coral, FL)
"Thank you helping me to use a tool to help me lose weight. I especially liked your encouragement to not give up, even if I missed a day! I also liked the suggestion of the 'barbecue meal' or the 'party meal'. Every time I go out that happens and I would just not log in because I was overwhelmed and couldn't possibly log everything I ate! The modules are bite sized! Just enough information at one time! Perfect!"
-Allison D. (Hollywood, FL)
If you’ve read this far, you may be thinking…
“Hmm… this sounds a whole lot better than that 10-day juice cleanse or 90-day boot camp my coworker is suffering through right now.”
That is correct.
If weight loss is your goal, you can do it the easy way or the hard way.
There’s a learning curve, just like any other skill. But it’s not a steep one.
I designed this course to be to be consumed quickly.
You can get through all the videos in each chapter in 15 minutes or less. Set aside this time and within an hour or two, you’ll understand weight loss better than everyone you know.
This alone is worth the price of the course, but I don’t just want to be your bro-fessor, regurgitate theory, and philosophize.
The bulk of the course is comprised of STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIALS that you can put into ACTION immediately to start getting weight loss results.
If you follow this system, you can be down a few pounds, easy, within the first month.
Within a few months, you can be at your goal weight and managing your weight on autopilot without having the slightest concern about rebound fat gain.
The choice is yours.
I can’t guarantee success, of course. You have to put in the work. But I will be there to help you every step of the way.
The lessons are interactive, each with a comments section which I will be monitoring. So you’ll have access to ask me anything you’d like at any time.
I’m not gonna leave you hanging!
MyFitnessPal gets right to the core of weight loss by targeting a calorie deficit and tracking against it. In addition, it has the most comprehensive food database on the web, allows you to track your activity, and syncs with other apps such as Fitbit.
Finally, there is great social support that helps keep you motivated by interacting with friends and other community members. I go into detail on reasons why MyFitnessPal is the best calorie counter in Chapter 1.
Which areas of MyFitnessPal will the course cover?
The course will cover the MyFitnessPal website, not the mobile apps. However, once you learn how to use the website, you can easily apply what you learn to the mobile apps.
In Chapter 2, we cover how to set a weight loss goal, track food, and log exercise.
In Chapter 3, we cover how to adjust macros.
In Chapter 4, we cover shortcuts to help you save time counting calories.
The course will not cover the social components of MyFitnessPal, such as adding friends, interacting on the forum, or starting a blog.
How much time should I spend on the course?
Like I said, I designed this course to be consumed quickly. I tried to only include the most relevant information to help you hit your goal and maintain your ideal weight. Nothing more.
You’ll be able to get through all the video lessons in just over an hour total or 15 minutes a day for five days. I suggest setting aside 15 minutes a day to watch the videos and another 15 minutes to complete the accountability surveys and practice using MyFitnessPal.
The more you practice, the more quickly you will master it.
Can I follow an exercise program while I do this?
Absolutely. Just don’t overdo it by coupling rigorous exercise with too severe of a calorie deficit. Make sure you account for your exercise calories by logging them in MyFitnessPal so that you can adjust your daily calorie intake accordingly.
Please use your best judgement when starting either a new diet or exercise regimen and consult your doctor before doing so if you have any questions or concerns.
Thanks for taking the time to read this! I hope to see you inside the course!
