Day 8 of the 60 Day Ultimate Optimization Challenge
Welcome to Day #8 of the 60-Day Ultimate Optimization Challenge!
Happy day everyone! How are you doing? I’m sure you heard about counting macros. It’s all the rage a Nutrition right now! Instead of counting calories you count the grams of protein, fat, carbohydrates based on your size and weight and goals. Here is an easy calculator to try it out for yourself
I’m not saying this is right for everyone but it’s one way to check in on how you’re doing with your diet. I’m going to present the more traditional way of creating a diet plan which is calorie counting. All of this is good in the short term as a check in. I could tell you that I hate to do all of this on a daily basis. I use it to check in with myself for three days and make adjustments. And then every few months check in again. Have a great day happy day 8!
Macronutrients… We consume it everyday, so let’s discuss them in detail today:
What are macros? Nutrients that provide energy and are essential to maintaining bodily functions and carrying out daily activities.
They are divided into three broad categories: Protein, carbohydrates and fats. Why are they important? Consuming optimal levels of macros every day is the easiest strategy to keep your diet in check and maintain a healthy weight. How to track: A simple way is to focus on getting 20-30 grams of protein per meal.
Your homework for today is: Get 20-30 grams of protein for three days and tell me how you feel!
