Counting bites as a Lifestyle Change: Lose the weight and keep it off!
Thank you for posting this information about this method of losing weight. I never heard of it before. My weight is currently around 220 lbs. and I need to get down to 145, where it was 12 years ago. I tend to give up on diets because of the amount of record keeping involved with counting calories or carbs. A lot of times I find myself having to estimate how much of something I ate (who knows how accurate that is)? Most nights I cook something for dinner made of multiple ingredients--the bookkeeping then becomes a real nightmare! This way sounds simple and a lot less trouble. I'm going to try it!
Thanks for Commenting! It is alot simpler than any calorie/carb/point counting I have tried! ;) I started very close to your weight about 218.2 and I am 145.4, so very close to your starting and goal numbers! The same way with Intuitive Eating which I used to do, I would constantly have to put forth such a mental effort wether or not I was hungry or full. This caused it to be too much work! Let me know how it goes for you, highly recomend Stickk.com to help with keeping on track, too.
It's Monday, so I'm starting to count bites today. Just checked out the Stickk website and I like the idea of putting money on the line as extra incentive! Perseverance is definitely not my strong point, so I made a contract to stick to 80 bites or less daily for this week, or donate money to a charity.
Good for you, you are trying stickk! I use it for bites every week, exercise and housework ect ect. Ive been doing it stickk scince October 2013. 80 bites is a good place to start!
This is so interesting and informative! I appreciate your posting it. I'm going to try this.
If you don't have time for workouts and still want to lose weight, you can try Garcinia Cambogia Extract! I lose weight and so happy about it!
I'm trying to figure out if I count black coffee as a bite? Help?
No you do not count plain black coffee as a bite
thank you very much!
I just wanted to say thank you for all the information you have. It was truly inspiring to read. Started counting bites last Monday, and I am amazed at the lack of hunger right now. Not that I don't get hungry, but I don't feel driven to eat. Keep focused!! And thanks again!!!
I drink an extra two glasses a day of water because i read for every cup of coffee add a cup of water because it can retain water and dehydrate you, is this true? Im kind of hooked on coffee so i'm hoping it is not bad for my diet.Valentus
A trainer had once told me that the body is made for survival. If you don't drink enough water, it will retain water because it doesn't know when it will get more. Whereas if you teach your body it can have water all day (meaning you drink water all day) it won't retain as much because it knows it will be replenished very soon. Did he provide textbook citations? No. But it made sense to me.One thing I have noticed is that by drinking just a little extra water means I do urinate a whole lot more. Some days it seems like I'm going more than I'm drinking, so maybe there is some truth to it.

I found your blog a few days ago and I'm really excited about doing this. I started three days ago and it's going pretty well. I want to congratulate you on all your success so far and thank you for having this awesome blog site about counting bites! I think this is a perfect way to lose weight and it's so much easier than tracking calories.
Hi Elizabeth, I just started today and I was wondering how it was going for you. Most of the other comments are from a while back, including Amanda's, so I was wondering if anyone was doing the same thing as me at this time...
