PICK A SIDE: team high fat or team high carb?
Trick question! If you understand your personal macro needs, you don’t need to pick a side.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Certain circumstances might warrant a higher fat or higher carb meal. If you’re tracking macros you have a choice to pick based on:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
>> what’s in season
>> your preferences
>> what’s on sale at the store
>> social plans
>> what’s available to you
>> how you want to feel + perform
…while also meeting your body’s unique needs.
Macro tracking allows for a mix and match style of eating that put’s you in the driver’s seat of how you want to look, feel and perform. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let go of the “allowed” and “not allowed” list and embrace the freedom of choice and autonomy.
Peep this post for inspo when you’re ready to break free from the nonsense food rules and go rogue:
Fat heavy burrito bowl that includes pork carnitas (PF) + black beans (C) + pinto beans (C) + guacamole (F) + cojita cheese (F) + sour cream or coconut cream (F)
Carb heavy burrito bowl which includes shredded beef (PF) + black beans (C) + pinto beans (C) + cilantro rice (C) + corn (C) + mango salsa (C)
The question moves from “what can I have?” to “what do I want?” and that’s incredibly powerful. Which would you choose?
