My Macro Book: an easy-to-follow guide to tracking macros for great results launches this upcoming Sunday. Tracking macros is a nutrition tool that has personally helped both my husband and I see such great results with ZERO restrictions. Yes, I mean… we enjoy cheesecake, chips, pasta, pizza and so much more all while losing fat and building muscle.
Here, I want to answer the top 5 questions I’ve been seeing most lately.
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.
