How to Get Started Tracking Your Macros

Tracking my food (and sticking to my macros) has truly been a game changer for my mood and how I feel overall on a daily basis. Controlling what I put into my body and KNOWING that I am giving my body what it needs to perform optimally, FEEL good, AND reach my goals has helped me with my mental state as well. 🙏🏼Plus when I stress eat, it’s usually crap/junk food that might make me temporarily feel good, but later on I just feel like 💩 too. ⁣⁣⁣



⁣⁣⁣Want to start tracking your food? Here's how I'd suggest starting:

- Download a good food tracking app (I use the My Transphormation app)⁣⁣⁣

- Get a calculation of your macros based on your body stats and your goals 💪🏼 (if you need help with this, click here!)⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣

- Log the foods you consume 📝– I like to plan out my day ahead of time, but if you’re just starting out, just log it right after you make your meal⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣

- Get a good food scale. 🙌🏼 This makes tracking WAY easier and helps you make sure you’re actually getting accurate serving sizes. You’d be surprised to see how big a serving of peanut butter actually is when you weigh it out correctly 😂 If you need a recommendation, let me know!⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣

- See where you need to make adjustments based on your calculated macros ⚖️. At first it will be very hard to start hitting your macros exactly. To start, I always just recommend tracking to see where you’re at normally and then work to make small adjustments to get you closer to your macro goals! ⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣

The concept itself isn’t hard, but it can be confusing when you’re starting out! Don’t ever hesitate to reach out if you have questions, or download this app (get the premium version so I can message you!) and I will be in touch shortly! I’ve been tracking my food (off and on) for 5+ years and am more than happy to help you! ❤️⁣⁣⁣
