I tracked my macros for over 4 years and I stopped. Macro tracking helped me learn about food, I understood how food affected my body, and I realized I didn’t have to fear the amount I was eating to get in the shape I wanted. However, as my life has changed and my priorities change, so have my eating habits. In this blog I share about why I stopped tracking macros and my plans moving forward with my eating habits!

Do you even need to go low fat in order to see results? Some will say yes and some will no. Here’s what I know and what has worked for many of my clients. Macros doesn’t mean one thing. Tracking macros is just a way to measure your food. You can be Keto and track. You can be low carb and track. You can eat tons of meat or none at all. Macros is not one size fits all but what fits best for your lifestyle & goals. In here I breakdown how you can enjoy a lower fat diet when all you crave is high fats. And I also give you some pointers on how to make the diet work for the foods you like!

I am a huge breakfast girl! It is my favorite meal of the day and I keep it really simple because nobody has time for an extravagant meal first thing in the morning. However, quick things for breakfast can be hard when you are trying to get in a good amount of protein. Unless you’re adding protein powder to smoothies, yogurt, or in your milk for your cereal, you’re probably getting in a decent amount of carbs and fats with not as much protein. Making it harder for your end of day goals to be hit.

In college I used to have these HUGE cheat days on the weekends after a week of restrictive eating and I would just eat anything and everything in sight because I thought I ‘earned’ it for being good all week. However, through those cycles I actually started to have a terrible relationship with food and my own mindset around what it means to be healthy. Through a lot of trial and error, and lots of work on my own mentality – I love adding in intuitive days to my own week and in my clients. The word in itself helps us disconnect the word from meaning ‘cheating’ on our diet and turns it into simply being mindful of our food.
