MyFitnessPal Macros

Let’s get to tracking!

Using MyFitnessPal

I personally use this calorie counting app. It’s all about personal preference so use what’s familiar. Make sure tracking your calories is simple and that you can see all of the nutrient values. The carbohydrates, proteins, fats and sugars. This is essential to your weight loss journey. I recommend tracking your calories three times a week to get started. Weekends too. This is accountability. It will change your relationship with food for the better. I recommend the premium plan to track your macros.

It’s not all about the calories. A calorie is a unit of energy. Think about your food in terms of energy and macronutrients. Macronutrients are carbohydrates, proteins and fats. When you eat food it is broken down into macronutrients and converted to energy. This is cellular metabolism. So along with your calories start paying attention to your macronutrients. Are you getting enough of them in your diet? Probably not and this leads to yo-yo dieting, cravings and binging. Dietician’s and nutritionists recommend that 40% of your calories come from carbohydrates, 30% from protein and 30% fat. This is a balanced diet.

Remember it’s all about eating the foods you like. Adding in some new ones. Trying new foods and most important how you feel. Weight loss isn’t about perfection but it is about creating new and healthy core foods and finding recipes that fit. For now get to tracking!
