I’ve got a special “master class” that will help 1) explain and 2) put into action a nutrition topic that’s all about flexible eating to help get you the results you want.
It works whether you want to gain weight, lose weight, maintain your weight, or try clean eating – without following a strict menu plan.
It’s called macro-based eating. It might seem a little complicated at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s AMAZING!
I’m going to walk you through finding YOUR macro numbers below, but first let’s talk about why it works so well.
The term “macro” refers to macronutrients – protein, carbs, and fats. It’s also helpful to include fiber because when you’re getting enough fiber, you probably are eating healthier carbs. :)
Each macro gives you different benefits, so it can be helpful to know you’re getting enough of them. Plus, you get to see how your body responds to different macro breakdowns. For example, some people feel better with more carbs and some with less.
Planning and tracking your macros lets you get really TACTICAL about choosing the foods you eat to get you the results you want.
It gives you real data, vs. “guestimating” what you’re actually eating.
Note: you DEFINITELY are going to want to use an online food journal to do this – check out MyFitnessPal, Cronometer, FitBit’s food journal, or other online resource. It will save you tons of time and effort.
HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR MACROS:
STEP #1: Set your “daily target calorie intake amount” since all your calculations will depend on it.
Here is a cool calculator to get a baseline idea:
