The truth is, yes, you will definitely lose weight if you focus solely on calories and consume fewer cals than you burn. That’s just plain old science. And if there was one thing we learned from the Twinkie study, it’s that the laws of thermodynamics are for real.
But the quality of your weight loss will suffer if you ignore the macronutrients.
For example, inadequate protein during a calorie deficit will cause you to lose muscle. Inadequate fat intake will negatively impact many of the hormones that help your continued weight loss. And inadequate carbohydrate intake can negatively impact training performance in many instances.
So, while you can drop weight by counting calories, we aren’t just interested in dropping weight. We want a good lookin’, athletic, healthy body.
For that, counting calories ain’t enough. You need to count your macros.
