Could anyone tell me if I need to calorie count when eating raw to loose weight? I went overseas on a holiday and gained 10kg and as well as wanting to feel better, I was hoping to get that added bonus of weight loss. I have always wanted to be fully raw and I started it a week ago. I have been reading online testimonys about people going raw and I am SO excited as I already feel more energetic and brighter. Yay! :)But I have read on several different websites that in order to loose significant weight on a raw diet, you need to count calories and stay under your daily calorie intake each day?! I am unsure about this and have read so many conflicting opinions.( Eg: eat less to loose weight vs: eat more to burn fat.) Does anyone have a little knowledge on this topic and able to share some insight? It would be MUCH appreciated as I love all these raw candies and cakes and pies but they seem to be a mass load of calories and although I am mostly motivated in feeling better, I am scared about gaining more weight, eak!
thanks so much in advance
