“What do you do when you get to a point when you just get tired of tracking?”⁣⁣
This post is inspired by a question I get fairly often in the comments and the DMs: stop treating macro tracking like it’s your religion. So married to it that you’d lose part of your identity if you stopped. ⁣⁣
If you treat [insert nutrition approach] like a tool, you can walk away from it at any time. I liken it to riding a bike – you don’t have to ride a bike every single day to know you’ll be able to jump back in the seat next time the opportunity is presented. ⁣⁣
Just like if you’re tracking macros to educate yourself about proper portion sizes to support your goals – you can confidently dip in and out of it at any time. ⁣⁣
But if you’re leaning on your macros, color-coded containers, points, or blocks to make decisions for you, it might be time to do some self-reflection and reframe. It’s no longer a tool and you’re giving the approach way too much power. ⁣⁣
And damnit if you’re tired of tracking, stop tracking! Start trusting your instincts because I know you know how to build a balanced, and satisfying meal if you’ve been paying attention to what’s on your plate throughout the time spent tracking.
