We’ve been following the wrong advice for too long. Dieting doesn’t need to be this hard. The key to long-term weight loss isn’t counting calories; it’s eating in a way that lowers insulin levels, calms chronic inflammation and, by so doing, readjusts the body weight set-point to a lower level. That is the focus of the program in my forthcoming book, Always Hungry. You won’t count calories on this program. But you will eat well — including luscious high-fat foods (like nuts and nut butters, full-fat dairy, avocados, and dark chocolate), savory proteins, and natural carbohydrates — until you’re completely satisfied. It’s dieting without deprivation.
Why Calorie Restricted Diets Don’t Work
Dr. David Ludwig

I am interested in what you say, but based on my experience I couldn’t disagree with you more. Counting calories has been immensely more effective than restrictive diets for me.
