Figuring out your macros can be extremely difficult. Age, weight, height, lean body mass, and your fitness level, are just a few things that one needs to take into account when figuring them out. Every case is unique because we ARE ALL unique. The amount of information - and maybe even more importantly misinformation - out there is crazy.
Food is so misunderstood. And even more so, macros. In its simplest terms, it's not really WHAT you eat, but how much. Don't believe ANY hype about food: Gluten-free, Low-carb, Organic, Raw, Non-Fat, High in Protein, etc. because what they represent as "good" will always have a “bad” to compensate for it.
“Macros” is short for Macronutrients: Fats, carbs, protein. In a nutshell, macros state that when eating carbs: a carb is a carb, whether you're having oatmeal or french fries. Now... what I do is a bit of a combination between eating whatever "fits" my macros (eating whatever I want) and "clean eating", as, while I CAN have french fries for breakfast , I'd rather stay away from them since I won't be able to eat as many fries as I would something "cleaner". For example, if I ate 29 grams worth of carbs eating McDonalds fries, I'd only be able to have 2.5 oz (along with 11g of fat to go along with it), as opposed to being able to eat DOUBLE that amount in oatmeal, with only 3g fat and twice the amount of protein of french fries. And I don’t know about you, but I like to eat… a lot. So 2.5 oz isn't going to cut it for me, and definitely won't leave me feeling full and satisfied. Volume is the name of the game.
All this might seem complicated, and it is, which is why you may need more information and some coaching. And that is what I offer with my program. So join me and the dozens of trainees who have transformed their bodies while still eating great!
