“OMG that dessert was divine, but it was more carbs than I shoulda had.”
“I thought I grabbed the best option but after I logged it, I was really surprised by the carbs.”
“That smoothie bowl was delicious, but man, it was way higher in carbs than I expected.”
Hold up! Let’s stop the macro shaming.
>> what’s ActUaLlY in your favorite foods
>> which foods leave you hungry and munchie
>> it’s hard to overeat on whole, real foods
>> preparing food at home is a challenge worth overcoming
>> nuts are not a great source of protein

No one expects you to play an elaborate game of tetris – puzzle piecing your way to hitting your macros perfectly every single day.
Look, I know it’s important to you to eat enough and feel your best, so what’s a girl to do in this situation?
Attempt to hit your calorie goals and your protein targets, while adjusting fats down to accommodate overshooting your carbohydrate targets.
>> Splitting cake with your girlfriends after lunch means you’ll hold back a little cheese or avocado later during taco night with the fam.
>> When you do get the chance to eat a meal after a day of errands, you’ll prepare something filling, high in protein and with lots of vegetables.
>> Next time you order that acai smoothie bowl, you might ask for toppings like nuts or coconut shavings because you prefer it more balanced.
Don’t create macro stress for yourself. Flexible tracking will take you farther than perfection ever could.
