Let’s talk about a powerful tool that has helped thousands of our clients reach their goals: MACRO COUNTING.

What is Macro Counting?

Macro counting involves tracking the three main macronutrients your body needs: protein, carbohydrates, and fats. By understanding and balancing your intake of these nutrients, you can optimize your diet to support your specific health and fitness goals.

Counting macros is very similar to counting calories in the fact that you track what you eat.  However, instead of just focusing on hitting a certain amount of calories each day, you’re aiming to hit a certain amount of protein, carbohydrates, and fat grams.
