Calorie counting

Calorie counting is an obsessional counting and calculating of caloric intake. Counting can indicate increasing preoccupation with food/eating demonstrated by reading recipes, food labels, counting fat grams, weighing and measuring food, and ultimately further limiting acceptable amounts to be consumed. For some, when the pre-established limit is exceeded, they engage in compensatory behaviors i.e. purging, exercise, restriction to "un-do" amounts consumed.
