If you are planning on attending my next Nutrition 101 or 201 seminar, or working with me one-on-one to improve your nutrition habits, here is a bit of info to prepare you so you can get the most our of your time in the S*M*A*S*H classroom.
What is FOOD DATA?
“Food Data” simply means writing down what food I am putting into my body.
What are MACRONUTRIENTS / MACROS?
1 gram of Protein = 4 calories
1 gram of Carb = 4 calories
1 gram of Fat = 9 calories
How many grams of each MACRO should I consume DAILY?
I really like this article that references studies and explains why a higher protein diet increases metabolism, which of course helps you burn more fat.
If your goal isn't to lose fat and gain muscle, there are other great articles out there to help you calculate your Macro numbers. A simple Google search will point you in the right direction, but what’s going to help you even more is if you come to my next seminar!
Ready to take the first step towards optimizing your energy and metabolism?
ACTION STEP 1: Record all the food and beverages you consume over the next 24 hours.
***Don't worry about the macro math just yet.
Simply record the amount of food and beverages in ml/L/grams/oz.
If you are planning on attending my upcoming Nutrition seminar or working with me one-on-one to improve your nutrition habits, you will need at least
SEVEN CONSECUTIVE DAYS OF FOOD DATA
to get started.
Once you have that, proceed to my next blog about nutrition:
