Do I need to track my calories on this plan?

Updated 8 months ago by Leslie

All of the recipes in the Meal Planner provide you with the ability to view nutritional information. That said, unless you have a medical condition that requires it, we don’t encourage nutrient tallying and calorie counting, which can create more problems than they solve.

With a whole-food, plant-based diet, our advisors recommended that you eat until you’re comfortably satiated instead of counting calories. The higher water and fiber content of whole plant foods allows our bodies to more accurately gauge how much food we need to eat.

We have included a couple of articles below that you may find interesting.
