🤪 Eyeballing measurements.
“1 tablespoon” of peanut butter can EASILY be 3x that-trust me dude.
One year when my older sister was sick, I made her a PB sandwich and she almost gagged on how much PB was on it. No joke.
I was the KWEEN of PB hahah.
No bueno when trying to lose weight! It’s super frustrating when we “feel” like we’re eating the right amounts but not making progress. I did a few free nutrition audits for some of you and it was eye opening for those that did it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤪 Tracking as you eat-aka not “pre-planning” your day.
I totally get it-you don’t want to be told what you can and cannot eat.
This is why I HATE meal plans. But the best part about macros is that YOU create your own meal plan!
👉🏻You’re just simply setting it up the night before to help you actually be successful. As you become much more comfortable with macros this process goes soooo much faster and you can easily swap things out throughout the day as you please.
🤟🏼But in the beginning-do this for the first month and thank me later.
🤪 Not having prepped food.
If you don’t like eating completely pre-prepped meals for every single meal-no worries! I suggest “bulk prepping” some proteins and some veggie sources that you can easily put together in a few minutes to make your day go easier.
👉🏻If you work 9-5 then I suggest prepping only your lunches so that you ARE prepared and then breakfasts and dinners can have a little more wiggle room.
🌶Having prepped protein and veggie sources AND your plan ahead of time makes it super easy to throw your dinner together after a long ass day.
🥳You get some fresh elements and don’t have to take 20 minutes making chicken because it’s already prepped!
🤑Throw that, plus the veggies heated up on a skillet into a burrito shell, top with 1 tbsp sour cream and some pico de gallo and call it a WIN! Better than Postmates because it saved you $30 AND waiting 60+ mins!
