Include TEF (Thermic effect of food)?


Recommended Posts

No.  I find calorie counting too imprecise and tedious to be very useful and thermic effect would be a small factor compared to larger issues such as the variability of non refined whole foods.

I classify my foods as things that I can eat without concern for portion size such as salad greens versus things for which I aim for fairly consistent moderate portions such as nuts, fish, dairy, eggs and meats for which I might guesstimate calories to the nearest 100.   I skip meals when needed to keep body fat in check.
