Macros 101

with Caroline Drury

Welcome to Macros 101! Macro counting, also known as flexible dieting, is a popular and effective approach that empowers you to take control of your nutrition and make sustainable lifestyle changes. In this comprehensive guide, I aim to demystify the world of macro counting and equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to succeed. Macros, short for macronutrients, refer to the three essential components of your diet: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. By understanding and planning/tracking these macronutrients, you can create a customized meal plan that aligns with your goals and for most of you starting here with me, that goal will be weight loss/fat loss (I will use those terms interchangeably throughout this guide). With this written and accompanying video guide in the app, I aim to simplify the process and eliminate any confusion surrounding macro counting. I have worked to give you as much information on how I work with macros with my clients, and I've also provided step-by-step instructions on calculating your starting macros, and you'll learn how to set realistic targets and make adjustments along the way, ensuring you stay on track to achieve your desired results. This guide will not promote restrictive diets or fads; instead, it encourages you to enjoy a wide variety of foods while remaining mindful of your macro intake. I'll share valuable tips on making balanced food choices, navigating restaurant menus, and handling social situations without feeling overwhelmed or deprived. To complement your journey, we'll explore the importance of hydration, and address common challenges beginners face and offer strategies to overcome them, ensuring you stay motivated and committed to your macro counting journey. By the end of this guide, you will be well-equipped with the knowledge and confidence to embrace macro counting as a sustainable and effective way to optimize your nutrition and take charge of your health and fitness goals!
