I have a lot of respect for Andreas Eenfeldt, he's in the Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) / paleo camp, but I don't agree with this, well not as a blanket statement.
Too many people fail to reach their goals for fat loss and body composition, and have no idea why, because nothing is getting measured, they have no idea how much they should be eating, or how much is actually going down the piehole.
Calorie counting is not essential for everyone, and should not be necessary for ANYONE, but the fact that most of the population can't come to terms with the fact that what they eat should never even be in their diets, then having a way to measure intake becomes essential.
If someone has half of their bodyweight in fat to lose, then hell, get them counting and recording something, calores, macros, whatever.
When they re-learn how and what to eat, then sure, go for a more intuitive approach, but I am sure that a few months of calorie counting and consistent weight loss is going to do more to improve their self esteem and sense of wellbeing that panicking about developing an eating disorder.
His post , and title, is designed to raise debate, to get people to visit his site and interact. and by looking at the long list of comments, he got what he intended.
Just my opinion as someone who spends much of my time teaching people to eat better, move better, and shed body fat. Without some way to quantify whether they are complying or not makes it a VERY difficult business to be in. My clients want results, and if a little recording gets them healthier and leaner, so be it!!
