    So I'm still pretty new to keto here and have a question that's been nagging at me for a bit. I've read up on how a ketogenic diet in general is better for weight loss than simply counting calories and I agree with this. But I figured the best of both worlds would be to eat a ketogenic diet while also counting calories. Now I'm reading lots of posts that seem to indicate that simply being on a ketogenic diet is enough. This is where I'm confused... I would love to stop counting calories because the foods with the highest fat content and lowest carb content also seem to have the most calories. So I'm constantly hungry... Can anyone offer up any advice?
    Here are my stats: 5'7" / 27 / F / 178.5 lbs. -> meaning on a traditional counting calories way of life I should eat an estimated 1504 calories a day to lose about two pounds a week.

    Only for informational purposes. I discovered that I reduced my breakfast calories from ~500 (a bowl of cereal) to ~250 (cheese and roast beef), and yet could make it to 1:00pm without getting hungry instead of being hungry by 10:00 to 10:30. That amazed me.
    Just don't count calories, set up a "deficit," and starve yourself. Listen to your body.
