Do you want to learn how to calculate your calorie and macro goals to meet your fitness goal of weight loss, weight maintenance, or weight gain?
Counting macros prioritizes meeting goals for calories, protein, carbohydrates, and fat with the end result of meeting AND maintaining your fitness goal. All foods fit and no foods or food groups are eliminated with counting macros. Your goal is to meet your calorie and macro goals through weighing and tracking the foods that you eat.
This course contains six lessons and four weeks' worth of 1500-calorie and 1800-calorie sample meal plans. The meal plans provide meal and snack ideas for Monday through Friday. The lessons are as follows:
1. Why do we count macros?
2. How do we calculate our calorie and protein needs?
3. How do we meet our protein goal?
4. How do we calculate our carb and fat macros?
5. How and when do we adjust our calorie and macro goals? What does maintenance look like?
6. How do we adjust the 1800-calorie sample meal plans to meet the calorie and macro goals that we calculated?
Helpful videos are also available to assist with using a food scale and setting up a food tracking app. The sample meal plans also include some of my favorite recipes and weekly grocery lists.
You may take the course at your own pace and your access does not expire. As lessons and resources are added, you will continue to have access to those.
This course is available for United States residents who are age 18 and older. This course is for healthy, motivated individuals and provides general information on how to count macros. It is not intended for any particular disease states. You must be comfortable with weighing and measuring your foods and tracking your intake in a food tracking app. Many of the foods on the sample meal plans are listed in grams or ounces, so a food scale is required to be able to effectively measure your food and track in a food tracking app.
