Deprivation doesn’t lead to a fitter, leaner or stronger physique, but tracking macros, and eating enough, does.

MACROS ENSURE YOU'RE GETTING ENOUGH PROTEIN TO SUPPORT FAT LOSS AND LEAN MUSCLE GAIN

If calories are king for determining changes to weight, macros are king for determining changes to body composition.

For your goals, it matters that you eat enough muscle-building foods. Tracking macros – particularly protein macros – ensures you strengthen and maintain muscle in the pursuit of an athletic physique + weight room prowess.

MACROS ENSURE YOU KEEP YOUR HORMONES HAPPY

Hormones rule female fat loss. To keep hormones happy, it’s important to avoid eating dramatically less food than your body needs.

You might eat slightly less (but in many cases more!), so your body doesn’t react by thinking it’s in survival mode.

You’re not going for a “limp noodle” look here. You’re looking for fit, strong and lean – and we do this by eating as much food as possible while seeing steady fat loss + lean muscle gain!

MACROS ENCOURAGE LONG TERM CONSISTENCY TO SEE CHANGE

People who lose body fat and keep it off for good are consistent with a few key eating habits.

If you see opportunities to meet your goals from yummy foods at meal times, weeks of your new eating pattern will turn into months.

But, that can’t happen if you start with “no carbs past noon”. Tracking macros strips away the nonsense rules and leaves you with only what matters: eating enough of the right stuff to support a strong body.

MACROS ENSURE YOU'RE EATING ENOUGH TO FUEL CHALLENGING ACTIVITY

You know it’s gonna take some werk to get a butt like J-Lo but that’s totally fine because fitness has never been the issue.

Your issue is that the harder you push yourself in the gym, the hungrier you feel, and the lower your willpower to avoid treats becomes. Use a macros approach to know exactly how much you need to eat to feel full, deliver the booty building nutrients your body needs so you can confidently tell your trainer to “add more weight please!”
