@caligirlgetsfit is all up on her macro game! Loving this jar. More info below:
There are 3 types of people in this world. Ones who can do math, and ones who can’t. 😂 lol!
Now just for the record, I'm actually one of the ones who is terrible with math, but I have a handy dandy calculator! However I’ve gotten messages from people who say “I hate math and numbers, so how do I calculate my macros?” First, in my opinion, the best way to maintain your optimal health, including well-rounded nourishment and good energy levels, is to eat a balanced diet of macronutrients (macros). This consists of fat, protein, and carbs.
But for those of you who see my weekly preps, you know that I take the #IIFYM (if it fits your macros) method pretty seriously, by calculating every single nutrient that goes into my body, entering every macro into My Fitness Pal. And while this works great for me, I realize that calculating macros is not super practical for everyone. My advice for the on-the-go moms, people with demanding work schedules, or just anyone in general who doesn’t have the time to measure serving sizes or weigh all their food, is to look over your plate and make sure it is balanced. Making sure you’re getting enough lean proteins, healthy fats, and balanced carbs every day is a great way to start eating healthier. I generally try not to go over 25% of my calories from fat, and make sure that I am getting enough lean protein. You can definitely look at your meal and guesstimate the ratios, if you don’t have time to actually calculate them.
Here’s an example of a snack that I created and the balance of macros. It contains avocado (healthy fat), tomatoes, mixed greens, red cabbage, orange bell peppers (all carbs), and ground turkey (protein). Best advice - Just make sure that your meal looks balanced and take note of how your body feels after eating! Have a delicious and nutritious weekend everyone! -------
