Let's Talk About What Makes a Macro Friendly Meal
If you're looking to get lean and toned, then following a macro friendly diet will help.
A macro friendly meal is typically higher in protein and low to moderate in fat and carbs, which helps you cut calories and still feel full, without restricting whole food groups.
Sounds too good to be true? Well, it’s not, and I’m here to make it super easy for you to do!
How to Count Your Macros
Knowing how to count your macros is the first step in creating a macro friendly meal.
The term "macro" refers to the three main macronutrients: protein, carbohydrates, and fat. By tracking your intake of these nutrients, you can ensure that you're getting the right amount of each one.
If you're trying to track your macros, the best way to make sure you are hitting the amounts of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats that your body needs for your goals is to have a trained macro coach calculate them for you.
When I calculate macros for my clients I take into account their dieting history, age, body stats, exercise frequency, and overall goals. I want to create a guide for their macros that is sustainable!
BodyByBree Customized Macro Counts are customized to you and your needs, unlike generic macro counts you find online.
