We tend to overcomplicate things and make life hard - like with nutrition! Good news is - it's as easy as figuring out calories, macros, and making good choices.
We make this "fitness and nutrition" thing way harder than it has to be. We go half-cocked with information we sort of think we understand but didn't fully research, and then get upset when it's not working. One of the most common things I see, for example, is people under-eating. Yes, under-eating, not over-eating.
But I'm supposed to be at a calorie deficit for weight loss, right?!
See, we stop listening when we hear that part. What we don't hear, as a result, is that while we need to be at a deficit to lose weight, there IS, beyond that, such a thing as eating too little. And then there's the matter of macros.
What's a macro? Is that like Keto?
And now you see how we land in a problem, right?
So maybe it's time we keep things simple and bring it all back to basics. I realized it's been quite some time since I've talked about nutrition on the blog and podcast. I feel like this is a topic that bears repeating, so here we are having the conversation. Let's talk about how much to eat (calories), what it should be composed of (macros) and what kind of choices to and not to make for it to all work.
