011: Macros Aren’t Magic – Setting Your Own Macros

One question I get asked time and time again is “how does counting macros work” and “how do I set my macros.” Today on the podcast I answer both of those questions.

Here’s the truth: every online formula, every coach, every calculator is an ESTIMATE AT BEST and should be viewed only as a STARTING POINT. From there take the process in 3 steps:

  1. Learn the Basics
  2. Nail Consistency
  3. Adjust to Get Results

Of course you can hire someone. Of course a good coach is going to help you work through the sticking points of figuring out consistency. And a really good coach is going to help you dive into the mindset which creates your reality.

There is nothing magic about your macros. The biggest thing is viewing it all as an experiment – starting, being consistent, and then adjusting to get the results that you want.
