Just as I mentioned each diet approach has pros and cons, so does a macros based approach. Let’s dive in to see what works, what doesn’t, and how you can find balance.
𝗪𝐇𝐘 𝐌𝐀𝐂𝐑𝐎𝐒 𝗪𝐎𝐑𝐊:
Eating foods you enjoy means you’re much more likely to stick to your diet.
You have more control than if you had a set meal plan.
I see more buy in because it’s a sustainable change.
𝗪𝐇𝐘 𝐌𝐀𝐂𝐑𝐎𝐒 𝐀𝐑𝐄 𝐂𝐇𝐀𝐋𝐋𝐄𝐍𝐆𝐈𝐍𝐆:
It does take more time to prepare/track your food.
If you choose “diet foods” (like Halo Top Ice Cream) they can be more expensive.
“Junk” foods can actually INCREASE cravings… hence “Bet you can’t eat just one.”
Tracking can lead to more food focus (for example more planning/waiting for meals)
𝐇𝐎𝗪 𝐓𝐎 𝐅𝐈𝐍𝐃 𝐁𝐀𝐋𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐄 𝗪𝐈𝐓𝐇 𝐁𝐎𝐓𝐇:
Include whole foods
Make a menu for a few days or at least a few staple meals to eat during the week
Prep a few days at a time
Include flexible options
