I think this article is spot on.

I've began studying nutrition 15 years ago, I've been teaching, coaching individuals on nutrition for the past 10 years and I have NEVER counted calories. This article explains why I've chosen (personally and professionally) to keep the focus on real food.
Counting calories is misguided. The focus belongs on real food.
