HOW TO STAY CONSISTENT WHEN TRACKING MACROS

When it comes to results, consistency is key. So below are 3 things you need to know.

Ever try and count your macros/track your food then you go over or under by 10-20g for the day and you feel you failed so you throw it all out the window?? Well, don't! Tracking doesn't have to be stressful and if you don’t nail it it's still ok! Many of us get caught up in the idea of being 100% perfect on any "meal plan" and if you are not the most common reaction is to fall off the wagon completely then just start again on "Monday".

CALCULATING YOUR MACROS - A STARTING POINT

So many people want to track their macros but so many of you just don’t know where to start. I don’t blame you, with all of the information our there it can all get a little confusing. But before we get into it something to keep in mind is that there is no perfect caloric intake and no magical macro ratio. Calculating your macros for the first time or for a new goal is merely a starting point. If you calculate your macros and after a week you have not seen the results you are looking for then don't fret, you may just need consistency and some possible adjustments. The point of tracking macros is to have a calculated intake which then allows you to make adjustments depending on your weekly progress. It's important not to overthink it, just find an intake that is calculated according to your stats and is suited to your goals, then go from there

5 BENEFITS OF FLEXIBLE DIETING

What is Flexible Dieting?

Flexible dieting is a fairly new concept and has taken the health and fitness industry by storm over the last few years. You may have heard of it being referred to as IIFYM or “If it fits your macros”? And although it has been scientifically proven to be a successful form of “dieting” it initially received a bad rap from the old school dieters in heath and fitness and it still does.

I know that anytime I have ever been on a diet the foods that are typically listed has always been chicken, tuna, lean meats, broccoli, egg whites, sweet potato, and whole grains.  Sound familiar? But really, let's be honest! Unless you are an A grade bodybuilder (and even then), who wants to eat these foods and these foods ONLY all of the time for the rest of our lives just to stay in shape?
