These three macro myths might be the only thing standing between you and the lean + strong body you’re chasing!
"I have to eat the same thing every day to make it work"
Be honest: Don’t you already do this? If you took a look at your kitchen or your grocery list from week to week, you’d probably find the same 10-15 foods. You like what you like! Unlike rigid diet plans, macro-tracking will actually afford you way more options — and probably even inspire you to get more creative in the kitchen. Tracking macros never tells you what to eat but rather sets parameters on how much is appropriate for you. Choose any cuisine, any prep method, as big or small a portion as you want and, if you want it, you can have it.
"I have to be perfect to see results"
What would you say if I told you that the whole macro-tracking approach isn’t an exact science? Between user error in measuring food, database errors in the tracking apps and “best guess” macro prescriptions — it’s definitely not an exact method! But, even in its flaws, macro-tracking is still one of the most efficient and effective ways to lose weight, change your body composition and eat to support athletic performance. Perfection is NOT required.
"It's complicated and time consuming"
If you’re already planning a menu, shopping for groceries and even glancing at ingredients or nutrition labels – you’re more than halfway to tracking macros. If anything, macros provide a little more framework to the way you select foods and build your meals. Instead of having an internal argument about what’s on your plate and how much you should be eating, you’ll feel confident in putting together satisfying meals that the whole family can get on-board with.
