Right kinds of calories
You shouldn't have to be too concerned with the amount of calories you eat if you keep track of kinds of calories you consume. Proteins are good because they keep you full for a longer time, and you burn more calories by digesting them. Along with Proteins good fats are essential because they keep you full, and your body stops taking in more fat when you consume healthy ones. Vegetables also play a key role in calorie burning because you burn more calories digesting vegetables than consuming them. Carbohydrates don't contribute to fat loss because they can be stored as fat if you already have enough energy stored. Also, carbohydrates make you feel hungry shortly after eating them. This doesn't mean you shouldn't have any carbohydrates because they are a quick source of energy especially after workouts when energy stores are depleted. So, before you start counting calories I would see how eating the right amounts and kinds of calories works.
