To achieve fat loss you must be in a caloric deficit. You cannot lose fat unless you are burning more calories than you are consuming. In the end, in order to lose fat it’s the basic concept calories in vs calories out.
To lose fat you must be in a caloric deficit, but having the correct macros while being in a deficit will help you achieve your goals quickly and efficiently. Once you find your sweet spot, you will feel your best while looking your best.
I always suggest having a deficit no greater than 250 calories, otherwise you will be overly hungry and want to binge constantly. Slow and steady weight loss is always the best. Binge eat may undo your days spend in a deficit.
I began macro counting in 2017. I started counting macros with a goal of fat loss. I hired a macro coach because at the time I was truly lost when it came to macros. The thought alone was overwhelming and I felt lost and discouraged. I didn’t know where to begin. I didn’t know how to navigate the world of macro counting. I am a huge believer in educating yourself.
If you are as lost as I was contact me. I would love to help you navigate this world of macro counting and help you achieve your goals and fall in love with yourself all over again. I will truly make you believe in yourself more than ever before. You deserve to feel your best.
Macro Friendly Foods
When you are cutting or in a fat loss phase (caloric deficit) the best way to make it achievable is to make macro friendly foods readily available. Some of my favorites are:
- egg whites and egg substitutes (Trader Joe’s is my favorite, best ingredients)
- extra lean ground beef
- deli turkey
- turkey or chicken hot dogs (be careful to read labels, some brands have more fat than others and some brands have too many ingredients)
- skinless, boneless chicken breasts or tenderloins
- vegetables cooked with no or minimal oil (I love cooking veggies in my air fryer or steamed)
- center cut bacon
- joseph’s pitas (I use these to make pizzas, flatbreads and so much more)
- low carb tortillas
- powdered peanut butter (Organic PBfit, I purchase a large container from Costco)
- laughing cow cheese
- air popped popcorn (oil free)
- salsa (I love to use this as a dressing on my salads)
- frozen riced cauliflower
Head on over to my recipes and check out all the macro friendly and delicious meals I am making in house.
Remember you can still enjoy higher macro foods (foods with more calories), just simply reduce the serving size. Everything in moderation is my mantra. I ‘d love to help you navigate through the macro counting world. Let me know what I can do for you.
