Why i don't teach macro counting

I’m on a *personal* journey of mindful and intuitive eating. I intentionally started this journey in December 2018 (I practiced it loosely in the past) and my life and relationship with food has, in the most positive way, never been the same.

Why Don’t I Teach Macros?

Plain and simple – I’ve NEVER counted macros
Yep, that’s it. Sure, I can give you your estimated macros but beyond that, nope, I’m not going to teach you macro counting because I’ve never practiced it myself.

Why I’ve Never Counted Macros?

  • I thrive off my current practice of eating intuitively
  • I like listening to my internal cues like hunger, fullness, or satiety
  • I personally don’t want to eat for external, quantitative reasons

Is counting macros bad? Heck no! I know some amazing coaches that practice it and teach it and some incredible friends who thrive off it.

Takeaway

It’s important to find what works best for YOU! Just because someone else is doing it or just because it’s all the rage at your gym, doesn’t mean it’s best for YOU and YOUR body.

If you’re thinking about counting macros ➵ What’s your reasoning? Find your “why” and go from there.
