It is my opinion that calorie counting is the way to go as far as dieting is concerned. Especially if you use a website like, caloriecount.about.com. Truly they make calorie counting easy. They have a huge data base of foods and they also grade your day nutrition wise and let you know how you're doing. I think this is why Weight Watchers works for so many people (because that's all they do in weight watchers is count points - which is counting calories in a different way). I would suggest starting with caloriecount if you are interesting in losing weight. Their website is full of so many resources and there is also tons of support groups.
