Default to count or not to count?

I have been fighting with this question, and I am still unsure what is the right answer.

How important is it to count macronutrients and calories?

I just picked up a copy of the "Paleo Diet", very good read and a good way of eating for everyone. The author claims that you can lose weight "without counting cals or grams..." Now I assume he is talking about the average overweight junk food eating couch potato Joe who is trying to clean up their diet and get healthy and active.

But I assume this doesnt apply to people who have already acheived their setpoint weight, are pretty active already, already have clean eating habits, and are trying to aesthetically lean up and drop stubborn bodyfat.

If I am understanding this correctly, most people in the 2nd category above will need to be more meticulous about the amount of food they consume?

good article, and makes sense. Thanks for clarifying....just wanted to make sure I was on the right track, since when I read that, I was like "WTF?" as I remember reading in your book that you recommend counting.

I guess we will find some way to overeat even with restricted food groups. Heck, I can eat 5 apples in a sitting if I was really restricting, so eating unlimited amts of certain food groups doesnt work for me.
