What you may be missing….

If you’re struggling to hit your macros, this may be the instrumental piece you’re missing… ⁣

So often I’ll have clients just starting out with tracking struggling to hit their protein goal… ⁣
Or getting to the end of the day with 50 grams of protein left and no more carbs & fats…⁣
Or my favorite, really wanting to learn how to balance a nighttime treat, but never having room for it. ⁣
𝘚𝘰 𝘸𝘩𝘢𝘵’𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘳𝘦𝘵? ⁣
Every night I’ll login to my fitness pal and pre-plan my upcoming day. ⁣
I’ll work my way backwards, starting with my nighttime treat, and creamer in my coffee (my two non-negotiables). ⁣
From there, I’m able to log my potential breakfast and lunch, which are usually similar. ⁣
I can either leave some space for snacks and a “hole” for dinner to fill with whatever comes up for the day, or plan the full day out. ⁣
I’m able to look and see if my protein is low and I need to double up my portions on lean protein sources. Or if fats are too high, maybe I need to swap out the ground beef for a leaner protein source. ⁣
Keep in mind this doesn’t have to be set in stone. This is the beauty of macro tracking, if something comes up in the day and I really want a different snack, I can have it and tweak as I go. ⁣
If I’m going out for dinner and want to leave a 600 calorie gap in my day to account for that (with a good spread of protein, carbs, and fats), I can do that as well. ⁣

I give myself a general outline to set myself up for success, and then can have flexibility throughout my day. ⁣
It’s all a balance. 𝘋𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘭𝘰𝘨 𝘺𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘯𝘰𝘸? 𝘏𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘥 𝘱𝘳𝘦-𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘨? 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘲𝘶𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘥𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘪𝘵? ⁣
