How many boxes can you check?!⁣

As a dietitian, macros just make sense to me. ⁣

When you’re in school to become a dietitian, one of the first nutrition concepts you learn about is macros – in depth study of proteins, fats, and carbs, why we need them, how they are digested, absorbed and go to work in the body. Macros are the foundation of basic nutrition education.⁣

But my guess is that instead of learning about nutrition from this macro lens, most of you learned about nutrition from the lens of a diet: ⁣

>> blocks⁣
>> points⁣
>> colored containers⁣
>> strict meal plans⁣
>> “allowed” vs “not allowed” foods⁣

Sure, these concepts might make sense at the time you learn them, but as you try to transition to the real world outside of those plans and programs, you weren’t left with anything practical. ⁣

When you are tracking macros, portion sizes are determined by the individual, not a plan, program or food label. the approach removes a “one sizes fits all” idea about nutrition and serves as a way to provide that foundational nutrition education you probably never got!⁣

Macro tracking is the method that gives you the choice and autonomy of WHAT to eat, but still provides structure around HOW MUCH you should be eating based on your personal goals. Because let’s be honest, the “how much?” question is probably where you get held up.⁣
