Are you tired of doing “all the right things” and still seeing little to no progress? Is the strictness of an unyielding diet causing you to lose faith or passion in your healthy lifestyle efforts? These are classic frustrations when it comes to many individuals’ fat loss journey, and your team at the FASTer Way to Fat Loss is here to help with macro tracking!
Generally, when it comes to true overall health, it's not how much you eat, but WHAT you eat. Our science-backed macro method follows this philosophy by refusing to put you on a restrictive diet. Instead, we give you a way to eat not just effectively towards your fat loss goals, but enjoyably as well. Crazy right?
Read on below to find out more about macronutrients and our superior macro tracking strategy so you can have your cake and eat it too!
What Are Macronutrients?
Macronutrients are the “large” nutrients that make up most of what you eat, namely: carbohydrates, fats, and protein. Everybody requires a certain amount of each macro every day to properly fuel their body, effectively burn fat, and create lean, calorie-burning muscle. Our macros method targets this individualized ratio of protein, carbohydrates, and fat to help your body and its metabolism run as optimally as possible. Even with the busiest of schedules and a kid on each hip!
Carbohydrates are not evil, as many other weight loss fads and online health techniques may claim. Everything in moderation of course, but this nutrient does quite a lot for your body and it’s detrimental to cut it out of your diet completely. (Best news ever!)
For instance, carbohydrates help provide:
- Optimal hormone function
- Fuel for high-intensity interval training
- Maintenance of gut biodiversity
- Physiological vitamin, mineral, and fiber needs
When you provide your body with the right amount of carbs at the right time, otherwise known as carb cycling, you tap into your fat stores for energy. This is especially true both during and after a workout. It works by playing off your body’s natural carb depletion and repletion processes, strategically leveraging them to shed the fat from your body like water.
Examples of healthy complex carbs include sweet potatoes, brown rice, bananas, oats, leafy greens, and vegetables. Look to our Fall Meal Guide for some great recipes to incorporate many of these delicious staples around your family’s table!
Now, this may sound counterintuitive, but fat itself won’t make you fat. On the contrary, fat, in healthy amounts and from nutritional sources, has several amazing benefits for your overall wellness.
- Supporting your metabolism
- Assisting in cell signaling
- Bolstering immunity
- Regulating hormones
- Improving mood, body composition, and cardiovascular health
There are multiple sources of healthy fats such as nuts, seeds, avocados, salmon, and nut butter like almond butter. If you’ve been avoiding fats in fear of fluffing up, it’s time to bring them back on the menu.
Protein is a critical component that changes your body composition for optimal overall wellness and fat-burning productivity. It helps build and repair muscle through the replacement of worn-out cells, improves the efficiency of your metabolism, and produces glucagon, a catalyst for fat burning.
The best part? Its nutritional value doesn’t end there! Other benefits of this building-block compound include:
- Healthy skin, hair, and nails
- Strong bones
- Lasting full-feeling
- Boosts immune system
There are numerous sources of this wellness-promoting protein. For instance, eggs, chicken, tuna, beans, and tofu all offer fantastic fat-burning advantages along your fat loss journey.
Surprisingly, most women under-consume protein, so knowing your daily requirement and consistently getting enough is key for results.
Why The FASTer Way Macro Tracking Method Is Superior To “Clean Eating”
The FASTer Way macros method passionately follows three different plans of attack to get rid of your fat for good: precision, balance, and strategy.
Precision: Calorie Quality Over Quantity
Precision involves influencing or hand-picking where your macronutrients are coming from. Each macronutrient holds a caloric equivalent. In other words, become aware of calorie quality instead of being overly concerned with calorie quantity like most traditional diets.
When done right, this can aid in body composition changes such as lean muscle gain and maintenance as well as general fat loss. In addition, being conscientious about your whole food consumption promotes restful sleep, gut health, stable hormone function, satiation, energy levels, and improved exercise performance.
Balance In Your Macro Tracking
Our Macros Method heavily emphasizes recognizing and fulfilling ALL your macronutrient needs. In other words, the proper ratio of each macronutrient for you - never eliminating an entire food group.This promotes optimal health, overall wellness, and is the key to success in any fat loss journey.
For instance, if your diet is lacking in protein, your hard-earned muscles will begin to deteriorate and your metabolism lose momentum. If you're falling behind on your carbohydrate intake, you may find yourself feeling quite lethargic and lacking the energy to really give it your all during workouts. However, with our FASTer Way Macros Method, you won’t have to worry about any of this! You can be assured that you’re giving your body the fuel types it needs to thrive.
Strategy: Finding Food Freedom
As mentioned previously, our macros method doesn’t simply hand you a strict list of yes or no foods. We’ve surpassed that! What’s life without some variety - and treats?
Instead, by applying a level of strategy, you can find out what foods and how much of them to eat under any circumstance. Whether that’s out to eat, on the go, at a party, on a family vacation, or just sitting cozy at home. We don’t do elimination protocols. They’re simply not sustainable, whereas our macro method can give you results for life.
Additionally, with this strategy-based whole food method, you can incorporate all the savory treats and delectable delights you love, guilt free! In other words, you find your way to “food freedom” while still successfully burning away fat.
