So, y’all know that I love love love educating people in the energy (calories/macros-fats/carbs/proteins) of our meals so that we can UNDERSTAND what we’re taking in & never feel like we’re stuck in a rut when it comes to weight loss and feeling FUELED.
One of my clients sent me this photo & asked for assistance in breaking it down into macros.
The more that we weigh/measure our foods at home, the more familiar we become with portion sizes and the BETTER we get at estimating when going out to eat.
We cannot “intuitively eat” until we understand WHAT our body needs and WHAT is a fat/carb/protein. You’re setting yourself up for failure based on subconscious (or conscious) biases you have surrounding food!
Anyways swipe to see what I could estimate for this meal:
Be SPECIFIC when it comes to estimating macros.
Instead of typing in “avocado toast”, break it down into the ingredients (brioche bread, avocado, burrata cheese, and butter/oil). That way you can correctly adjust the serving sizes as needed.
She only ate half of this toast so the macros for half are:
For the entire meal that’s:
852 calories…for one meal.
MOST meals at restaurants are very high in fats, low in protein and moderate in carbs so should you choose to go out just monitor your other meals that day and have them be higher in protein/lower in fat to balance it out ⚖️ if you truly want to lose weight.
🗣What questions do you have surrounding macros? Have you found yourself having a bias when it comes to certain foods (like carbs?)
