“When people start to diet they cut out calories because that is what we’re all told to do,” says nutritionist Sheila Amir. Whatever fad diet you try, cutting out the number of calories you eat each time is the number one thing we start with. But, that could be harmful to your weight loss success.
“Yes eating more calories than you expend will eventually result in weight gain. But that’s only part of the picture,” says Amir.
