You’ve tried calculator after calculator and have gotten completely different results.
You don’t know if you should lose weight, gain muscle or land somewhere in between.
You wish you could talk to someone about a nuanced situation before getting your macro targets
That’s why you need living, breathing registered dietitians with expertise in all things macros.
Success with tracking macros starts with actually trusting your macro targets are right for you.
As the original macro experts, Registered Dietitians have years of professional experience to pull from when they provide protein, fat and carbohydrate goals.
When you work with us, supporting a healthy metabolism and happy hormones is always a part of the equation because we know that means you’ll better reach your body and performance goals, too.
using your biometrics, health history, activity level, food preferences and more, we’ll create a “best fit” macro prescription for you.
we’re all more likely to follow through with advice when we understand the reasoning, so I will walk you through how I determined your targets based on the background you provided.
I’ll mention if I see something standing in your way of being successful, such as stress, inflammation, gut health and hormone issues. This way the progress you make with your macros won’t be limited by other health factors.
Banish uncertainty about how long to follow macro targets, how to measure progress and how to adjust when the unexpected happens to your routine. I’ll answer these questions and more in detail so you can move forward in confidence.
i’m a registered dietitian and macro expert with proven success coaching hundreds of clients. i can talk about the science of macros all day long, but i also know that doesn’t always translate to results.
when i first started dipping my toes into tracking macros, i obsessively tried every generic calculator i could find.
some calculators spit out an astronomically high amount of protein. other calculators made me feel like i was starving. still others had me questioning if i was eating too much for my goals.
what was missing from the approaches that i was seeing? human touch. common sense. critically looking at the big picture.
i leveraged my degree and manipulated macro targets for myself (and my clients!) so we could:
log 2-3 “typical days” in your food diary—even your “secret” 9 p.m. chocolate habit
take pictures to document your present-day body shape and size. you’ll be prompted to upload these to your assessment—plus it’s so rewarding to look back on these later!
complete the custom macro assessment and then leave the math to me
get your custom macros targets in your inbox within 7-10 business days
confidently replace or upload your macro targets into your favorite food-tracking app
start hitting those targets like a boss with extra guidance and encouragement delivered to your inbox
Wouldn’t it be nice if the calculator knew that before spitting out an impossible protein to carbohydrate ratio? That won’t happen here, meaning you don’t have to choke down chalky protein powder just to hit some target.
We’re all more likely to follow through with advice when we understand the reasoning, so I will walk you through how I determined your targets based on the background you provided.
You’re stuck between wanting to see definition in your arms and wanting to string together pull-ups. We don’t want your strength progress to stop just to hit a specific scale weight.
Your macro targets and daily calorie goals delivered right to your inbox within 7-10 days of submitting your health assessment.
Recommendations on your greater health picture — if we see something, we say something! Especially if there’s a glaring detail that might make a real difference in your health or body composition goal.
Education and brief follow up by email to help you navigate some of the burning macro questions you might have as you start tracking your food against the targets provided.
For less than the price of that meal plan you were going to buy, you can get macro targets that are customized to YOU and YOUR GOALS — so you can eat the foods you enjoy, not the foods someone else recommends. You can also be confident that you’re eating for your unique needs and will see the results.
Online calculators, meal plans, the macros set by your tracking app… The reason you haven’t seen your desired results with any of these methods is they don’t know enough about you and your personal health and wellness goals. Our assessment asks 20+ questions so we can get as much information as possible to truly calculate custom-to-you targets. Registered Dietitians understand the interaction between what you eat and how your body systems work.
We’ll give you justification for why your macros are set the way they are and how you can work up to those numbers (if you need to). We’ll also provide tips around stress, gut health, hormones, and workouts. If we think that hearing it will benefit you, we’re not afraid to say it!
After payment, you will receive a link to fill out a detailed “Custom Macro Assessment.” You will have the option to include recent progress pictures.
The Custom Macro Calculation is a one-time calculation and does not come with follow-up consults, whereas one-on-one coaching is highly individualized. Coaching cycles are 6 months in length and include: review and feedback on your current habits, health assessments and food diary reviews, individualized plan development, virtual consultations, telephonic check-ins, plan evolution and adjustments according to your goals, weekly support, accountability and q/a as needed by messenger app. Apply to become a client here.
The goal is always to be eating as much food as possible while seeing changes in your body shape or size. If you are not able to be as physically active as you typically are for an extended period of time (12 weeks or more), you may choose to increase your NEAT (non-exercise activity thermogenesis). NEAT is all the activity that falls outside of formal exercise like walking, standing, and generally moving around throughout the day. Often, by increasing non-exercise activity, you are able to continue to see the intended changes you’d like to see in your body despite being less physically active through formal exercise. Team Emily does not recommend cutting calories or macros when you are temporarily less active than you typically are.
No change in macros is typically needed if you get sick or injured, or undergo surgery. Your main priority in these circumstances should be to eat an abundance of whole foods to support your metabolism and heal properly. It is best to follow your macro prescription as normal.
Absolutely! Having a personalized-to-you set of macro targets to start out with when you first start tracking will reduce most of the frustration and challenges that come with being new to tracking. There are also several “how to” guides for tracking macros available online, or consider some of Emily Field RDs resources as well for getting started.
Emily Field RD + team needs to know about your current or typical eating pattern. If you have macro targets set by a previous coach, program or calculator that you are either loosely or consistently hitting, please submit these numbers when prompted on the Assessment.Taking the time to log 2-3 typical days before submitting the assessment can be extremely helpful as well in creating “better fit” macro prescription.
The custom macro calculation is not a meal plan service. Emily Field RD will not recommend specific foods or meals that you should be eating on a regular basis. You are encouraged to find foods that you enjoy and fit them into your prescribed macro goals. General macro meal planning resources will accompany the email with your custom macro calculation in the form of blogs and downloadables.
Refunds are honored for custom macro calculations if you request one within 30 days of submitting payment and before submitting the Custom Macro Assessment. Refunds will not be honored after submitting the Custom Macro Assessment as Emily Field RD and team begin work on the calculation as soon as it is submitted.
