Calculating Macros Part 1 – What formula to use?
If you haven’t already figured out your macros, go back to the Beginner Video (log in to your account on the Own Your Eating website to be able to view the video) and Jason will walk you through how to do it.
If you’re new to macros but you’ve already been diligently tracking and hitting your numbers for the last two weeks, then how’s everything going? Have you seen any progress? Remember progress can be represented elsewhere other than the scale, but if weight loss is your primary goal you should have seen some change, like your clothes fitting better or a difference in your body when you look in the mirror. If you think your numbers might be off, stay tuned! We’ll be going over how to determine your goal weight and activity level later this week. In the meantime, keep tracking and hitting your macros as best you can. The more data we have, the better we’ll be able to help you adjust those numbers.
If you’re a bit of a veteran in the macro game, then that doesn’t mean your numbers don’t need changing. How are your current numbers working for you? Have you fallen a little off track? Has your activity or lifestyle changed? Do you feel satisfied and healthy? Start thinking about taking things to the next level by taking a peak at your daily micronutrient intake at the end of the day. Maybe it’s even time you consider having your blood analyzed by a service like Inside Tracker so you can really start to maximize your results and performance (use our code ACKERMAN for 10% off).
Later this week we’ll give you our formula so you can calculate your macros.
