Many years ago, when the Hip and Thigh diet was published, Rosemary wrote that counting calories was a very negative thing to do, and even though calorie counting was obviously the foundation of her diets (indeed, all diets), calories were never specifically mentioned. Vegetables like potatoes, for example, never had to be weighed. You just ate a portion that was enough to satisfy your hunger. It just seems such a shame that now her eating plan is based on calorie counting and I wondered why she had made this very big U turn in her slimming philosophy. Can anyone shed any light?
