I am thrilled to share my Macro Book: an easy-to-follow guide to finding your macros for accelerated results. This plan contains everything you need to know without the excess that makes it overwhelming. You will learn exactly how to track macros, so you can enjoy the ultimate food freedom all while seeing results.
MACROS: ADD THIS TOOL TO YOUR TOOLBOX
Macro counting is a nutrition tool that I want you to have in your nutrition toolbox. There’s no question that it works, and you may find yourself using it in 1 of 2 ways:
1) LONG-TERM: it will work so well for you + you will enjoy it so much that it becomes a long-term fit
My husband followed the exact steps in this book and he’s lost almost 50 POUNDS this last year! He is most proud of keeping it off, and continues to track.
2) SHORT-TERM: you will find it effective + want to use it on occasion to accelerate your results
I don’t count macros all the time… I use it a few times per year when I want to accelerate my results or when I hit a plateau (like after I had my babies). It helps me hit my goals faster than anything else I’ve tried and it always works for me.
MACRO BOOK FAQ
QUESTION: WAIT, WHAT EXACTLY IS MACRO COUNTING?
ANSWER: Macro is short for macronutrients, which are the main components of food. There are 3 macros: protein, fat and carbohydrates. Macro counting is an eating approach in which you track the food you eat, but instead of counting the calories, you count the macros. Each person has a calculated daily target for protein, fat and carbohydrates based on several personal factors and his or her goals.
Macro counting has helped my husband lose almost 50 pounds this past year and has helped me tremendously after having my 2 babies. I can’t wait to share this simplified approach with you.
QUESTION: WILL I ACTUALLY KNOW MY MACRO COUNTS OR IS THIS GENERAL INFORMATION?
ANSWER: Both. I will provide all the information you need to know on macro counting (without the excess that makes it overwhelming). There are 5 steps we will take to getting your exact macro numbers for maintenance, weight loss and weight/muscle gain. The plan walks you through each step and how to calculate your numbers. I even provide an example (“Susie Q”) who is 5’4″ and 145 pounds with a goal of fat loss and I show you her numbers.
QUESTION: WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
ANSWER: Macro counting is the most nutrition powerful tool I’ve ever used. In this plan, I will help you figure out your maintenance macros (how to eat to remain at your same weight). Then, I will walk you through how to slightly adjust for whatever your goals are: weight loss, muscle gain, etc. For me, I find that results come much easier and quicker with macro counting because I can eat whatever as long as it fits within my macros.
QUESTION: IS THIS HARD OR TIME CONSUMING?
ANSWER: Reading the book and getting your calculated macros will take no more than an hour. There is a little learning curve at the beginning in looking at food labels and figuring out whatever app you choose to log your macros on. I actually find it fun and in no time, it all becomes second nature.
Is it hard? Honestly, I find it harder to work hard at eating healthy and still not see results. Macro counting makes sense. It’s scientific. For me, it’s way easier to take a little time to track macros and to have everything pay off.
QUESTION: WHAT WORKOUTS SHOULD I DO?
You can follow any workouts while tracking macros. In fact, you don’t even have to workout. You could follow the calculation steps for zero workouts and still eat to lose weight.
QUESTION: WHAT CAN I EAT?
Anything! That’s the food freedom that comes with tracking macros. I try to follow the 80/20 principle, which means 80% of my foods are nutritious and 20% are just plain treats- cookies, chips, pizza, anything! I provide a sample full day of eating to help show you how to fit it all together.
QUESTION: IS THIS ALSO A COOKBOOK OR MEAL-BY-MEAL PLAN?
No! The point of macros is to be able to use anyone’s recipes. Obviously, I have 100s in my cookbooks (here), but also you can use your grandmother’s famous banana bread recipe or one you find on Pinterest. When you calculate your macros in my book, you will see just how individualized it is and why this is more about food freedom and less about a strict meal plan, which I’ve never been a fan of.
QUESTION: IS THIS SOMETHING I CAN DO SHORT TERM?
Answer: Absolutely! In fact, that is how I follow macro tracking. I don’t count macros all the time… I use it a few times per year when I want to accelerate my results or when I hit a plateau (like after I had my babies). It helps me hit my goals faster than anything else I’ve tried and it always works for me.
My husband followed the exact steps in this book and he’s lost almost 50 POUNDS this last year! So, some may find that it becomes a longer term fit like Anthony.
Either way, the guide is incredibly effective at helping you find YOUR exact macros for YOUR exact goals and providing every resource for how to follow it!
