benchmarkman, I don't know that I would agree about weightloss being a simple formula..in theory yes, it is....

HOWEVER, how my body reacts to certain foods varies. I have an easier go of it using whole foods, things low on the GI chart, drinking my water and eating tons of fiber.

If I chose to eat 1500 calories of grilled cheese sandwiches each day my experience would be MUCH different than eating 1500 calories of a balanced diet.

As far as "not bothering to count anything but calories"....well, I care to understand the benefits of the foods themselves and what they can do for my body--weightloss will happen if you are eating the correct way--but obtaining a certain weight isn't a guarantee of health---if you ONLY care about weight, than YES, absolutely calorie counting is sufficient.
