I’ve had so many fitness questions over the last couple months, and I knew I’d answered most of them but I couldn’t figure out where.  Until this week! These two posts answer a lot of the questions ya’ll have already asked.  However, my diet has changed.  I’m doing Macros now- which a lot of you are interested in.  So here’s everything you need to know about Macros:

  • I do a 40/30/30 split.  That means 40% carbs 30% protein 30% fat.  I can be within a 5% difference on each and I try to come on higher on the protein. 
  • I do workout 6 days a week- if you’re not active I recommend trying a different diet.  I have two listed in the posts linked above. 
  • To calculate my 40/30/30 split I use My Fitness Pal.  If you go to Settings>Goals>Calorie &Macronutrient Goals and set it to 40/30/30. 
  • You can also change your Weekly Goal and you activity level in Settings>Goals.  This will determine your caloric intake per day. 
  • I am currently set at 1800 calories each day as I’m attempting to lean out a bit.  So far it’s going well!  
  • I am currently at my smallest measurements and body fat since starting Macros, and am killing my workouts!

    Oooh your workout is impressive – planks are HARD! Esp. for me since wrist surgery about 10 years ago – but even before that, they weren’t my favorite haha. They are so good for a solid core, though!
