What are Macros?
Ok, so you have decided to follow a Macronutrient meal plan, now what? Beginning this journey is not about a quick fix or a fad diet, this is a lifestyle. Following macros gives you the freedom to achieve your goals while eating what you want. Tracking your food intake everyday may seem annoying, but it is the most precise method to ensure and reach your fitness goal while sustaining a realistic and positive quality of life.

Your New Best Friend…
MyFitness Pal (website or smartphone app) is a great tool that you can use to track exactly what you are eating. It is also the most convenient way for you to share your nutritional log with me by using the client update form HERE.I also suggest upgrading to the premium version of the MyFitness Pal App as it will allow you access and personalization options for your daily nutritional value log, which is what I use to create your customized nutritional prescriptions. It may seem like a bit of an investment, however, having the best tools available is key to ensuring your success.
Things to Remember
- Please eat normally and don’t make any changes, I want a clear picture of what you are doing NOW, not what you would like to do.
- Please screen-shot the front page of each day on MyFitnessPal as well as the “Nutrients” page of each day. Once you open MyFitnessPal, look at the bottom click “diary” then scroll down and click “nutrition” and the “nutrients” tab should pop up (look towards the top of the page).
