I’ve noticed a lot of people are still confused on what “macronutrients” (macros – protein, carbs and fats) are and how to track them. I know that feeling; the thought of macros intimidated me when I first attempted Flexible Dieting back in 2013. Worse yet, the more research I conducted, the more confused I became. However, now that I have been doing it a while, I cant believe I was ever scared, and the act of counting them has become literally effortless. It stressed me out how there were people out there, who I knew were very motivated and ready to attack their goals, wanted to try Flexible Dieting, but couldn’t wrap their heads around where to begin with macros. I didn’t want something as silly as that to hold anyone back so I made a two-part video series to help them.
Part One shows exactly how to log food into the mobile application “MyFitnessPal”. In the video I show you how to search for food in the database, plan your daily meals out ahead of time so you adjust your portions so you can hit your macros every day. In the second part, I show you how to weigh your food that you have logged in the application. I hope this is helpful to my clients and anyone else who is in need!
Stay positive, once you get the hang of it you will wonder why you didn’t start sooner!
