Counting calories is so important in your weight loss journey as it creates a clear picture of where you are at, and what you need to do to lose weight. For instance, to lose 0.5kg a week you need to burn 500 calories a day more than you eat. However the only way to then make sure of this is to know how many calories you are burning, and how many calories you eat.
