Evie touches on counting macros and who should and shouldn't do it. She breaks down the pros, cons and the messy parts of doing this nutrition craze.
Counting macros is about using a certain percentage of carbs, fats, and protein that one diet Is compromised of. These percentages will be based on that person's goals, current body fat levels, and activities.
Most macro-based coaches and macro-based apps are just giving a series of questions. Both may give you the amounts you need but it doesn't give you the whole picture.
This is your health that's on the line. It's not just about how you look in front of a mirror. There are a lot of people who look at food as a battle, which is sad.
Counting macros is all about reinforcing a great relationship with food, but dangerous for people who have suffered from eating disorders in the past.
There are consequences for being strict with your diet, Evie challenges us to be prepared. She even opens up about a time when she was counting macros and messed up her hormones pretty badly.
ONE TRUTH: We are making nutrition way too complicated. As long as you're eating five colors each meal, you don't have to worry about your intake of carbs, fats, and protein.
