The number one question I get asked almost daily is about macros. What are they? How do I calculate them? What do I eat? How did I teach myself about them?

And the list can go on and on...

I have typed up a little blurp about macros from my view with links to websites I found helpful. This is what I send to everyone who ask about macros and I figured I would post it on my blog as well. Remember, this is MY view of macros, this is MY research, this is what I found helpful for ME... This is not 100% Gold and it doesn't mean that you cant find another way to be successful at Macros. Everyone is different and everybody is different, you have to find what works best for you!

Okay so the best way I can explain them I that your body needs a set amount of grams of protein, fats, and carbs. No matter if you're trying to gain, maintain or lose. The amount you provide your body will determine if you gain, maintain or lose the weight. When you start working out, you can allow extra grams of each to give you fuel to have energy to workout. The more hardcore your workouts are the more you get to eat. The less active you are the less you want to eat. You want to log everything and weigh everything so you are making sure you aren't getting too much or too less of one thing. 

When I first found out about macros, I did a lot of research and played around with numbers until I found a set of numbers that I felt comfortable with and I started to lose weight. It was trial and error and it wasn't perfect at all. I would google everything I could think of that was related to macros and just play around with it.

Here is a blog that I suggest reading up about macros! It was one of the most helpful ones I came across while doing all of my research.

Then, back in January I paid this girl Paige $35 to figure up my macros (what to eat and how much) and she gave me TONS of information! She is worth all $35... She will NOT give you a day to day meal plan, you have to create that for yourself, but once you have your numbers it really isn't that hard.

Just shoot her an email and you go from there! And here is her page on Facebook:

You can also figure up your own macros here:

The macros I am doing now are from a calculation I received when I bought the Jessie's Girls workout, you can find it here: the workouts come with TONS of nutritional information that goes over Macros more in depth.

Any more questions you have, I will help you as much as I can. I am not a pro at this and I am not a nutritionist, trainer or a doctor. This is just a passion of mine and I have had a lot of success using macros. I was a clean eater for years and making the switch to macros was a little bit of a jump but it was well worth it for sure!
