Meal Planning | Macro Nutrient Counting

So I ran across this great article that I wanted to share with you all about how preparing almost exactly the same meal can diff quite substantially depending on how it is prepared. Here is the link to the article.

differences in macro nutrients

Here is a good example of using less oil, trimming fat off of meat, and watching portions are easy ways to cut calories. This is a great example of paying attention to your macro nutrients. By making small changes to the way that food is prepared we can see that you are still able to enjoy your foods at the same time as staying within your macro nutrient requirements. Specifically when you are preparing your lean meats try to minimize the cooking oils that you are using. Obviously you will need to cook with some oils but if you can start to make good changes with the types of oils that you use you can start to trim up the macro levels all the way until the food is finished without compromising on the taste.

There are so many great low fat or fat free options today for salad dressing options. Yes they are not as richly flavorful as the full fat options, however the fat and calories that you can save by this one simple change can make a huge difference in your daily amount of fat intake. Another note is that the salad on the left has more lean chicken then the one on the right. Therefore if you are tracking your macro nutrients like we have described in our previous posts then you will know exactly the amount of lean protein that you need for your salad.

Yes we have all heard about the benefits of avocados and how great of a fat they are for you. However a typical avocado is loaded with fat, whether you buy in to the healthy fat vs good fat is not the point here. There is a daily amount of fat that our bodies are comfortable with. If you have an excess of fats in your diet this will make it difficult to achieve a well balanced macro nutrient balance for the day. So if you love avocados then great, just try not to eat the whole avocado.

All of these helpful tips really are going to break down to how you portion out your macro nutrients throughout the day. You want to space out your calories so that you have a nice steady flow of healthy proportions coming in to your body. This will allow a nice steady burn and achieve the ultimate goal of muscle building and fat burning potential.

Of course we have spoke about many different ways to calculate your daily macro nutrients, however one of the best ways to stay on track is with proper supplementation. One of the best ways to achieve proper supplementation and to feed the body of your AdvoCare MNS3 Systemhidden hunger is to follow great nutritional support from products for example Advocare MNS. With the proper nutritional support your body will be able to thermogenically burn your calories more efficiently as well as supply you body with the proper nutrients that are not possible to achieve with a diet of just fortified foods.

Weight Loss Challenges

The Trials and Tribulations of trying to lose weight

Some of the many questions that I so often hear from clients is that they are tired of the yo-yo of cycling up and down with their weight. Many want to make a change in the lives because they have become so tired of living they way that they have and they are just ready. So many people ask, "How do I lose weight?'. Sounds like such a simple question, and it really has a simple answer.

I will give you the secret to weight loss. (side note: if you have underling medical issues this may not pertain to you)

Calories in = Calories out

Now what do I mean when I say that. What I'm saying is if you were to count all the calories that you consume in a day and then you calculate you basal metabolic rate you will determine how many calories that you need to consume in a day to maintain your current weight and activity level.

Does that make since?

I will break it down a little bit further and give you some resources.

  1. First you will need to figure out your basal metabolic rate. To be completely accurate, if you live in the United States you can go a physicians office and have a resting metabolic rate RMR performed. The way that they perform this test is to have you sit in a chair while your O2, CO2, and heart rate are monitored for around 15-20 minutes. To measure in the intake and output levels of this gases you have to wear a mask that will collect data of these levels. While you sit and "try and relax" all of your measurements will be taken so that you can figure out your true RMR. With all that being said you can also just go and find a calculator like this one (Click Here) and calculate your BMR. This will give you a general idea of what your BMR is at rest. Of course you can change some metric that are on this calculator but if you want to give it a try it is pretty neat to play around with.
  2. Now that you understand your BMR and caloric amount that you need for the day, you can adjust your calories that you consumer to fall approximately 500 calories less than that number.
  3. Next you need to monitor you Fat, Protein, as well as your Carbohydrate intake. A really good resource for this to help you out would be a tracker. The reason that I suggest this is not to over burden you with suggestions, this is so that you can determine for yourself what you want to make changes on. A suggested app would be Fat Secret you can find this app on the App Store with the iPhone or on Google Play whichever phone you have either way. So the goal would be to download this app and then to track exactly where you have the calories coming in from.

Ultimate Goals

So with all those nitty gritty details out of the way what is the secret. Well it is quite complicated and the formula is the secret to the weight loss. Honestly all diets will work as long as you are burning and using more calories than you consume in a day. However there is a formula that will get you there and help you take charge of your life. If you are willing to make that change then make the change, because the will to make a change has to come from within.
