Let’s talk macros 🍞🍎🥦🥑🥔
Macros (macronutrients) are your protein, carb, and fat intake. It’s basically a more complex way of counting calories. I don’t think tracking macros is for everyone but if you’re really trying to dial down and maybe even overcome a plateau you may want to give it a try!
First you will want to calculate what your macros will be and that’s based on several factors: your body type, your goals, what your macros/caloric goal looks like right now (very important) and so many more factors!
The next step is to start tracking your food. Most apps make it super easy to just scan or search for your food. I always tell my clients to start tracking about a week before we actually start together so they get the hang of it and I highly recommend doing that! If you’re just tracking calories ‘My Fitness Pal’ works great. I personally use ‘My Macros +’ and I love it! It’s always best to experiment with a few and find out what you like the best!
The point of flexible dieting is to enjoy it but it’s not about trying to fit as many donuts in your macros as possible. I eat about 85-95% clean whole foods but if I want to eat a cookie I’m probably going to!😊🍪
