Tracking everything definitely makes me aware of what foods contain the macros I need/don’t need more of in the day. Just having the awareness of how much fat/protein/carbs are in foods has been really helpful - so that now, even on the days I haven’t been able to track, I have an idea about how the rest of the day should probably look if I’ve just done a big meal or dessert date with friends. I’ve always looked at food as a compromise/balance; I just have more awareness and knowledge to work with now. Thank you."
There are three big things I've really tuned into since I started working with you. The first one is portion sizes and how they add up in terms of your macros. I can now look at a food and be pretty close to the weight or volume of the food. This helps me when I'm out and can't exactly measure my foods.
"The biggest change/learning for me is a healthier sense of balance with my macros and eating. The refeed days were HUGE for me, and learning to not fear the carbs when it comes to cutting weight!! That little shift in fat/carb targets at certain times of the month was really great too. Ultimately, it's been awesome working with a responsive and supportive coach vs. going it alone with templates.”
I’ve actually never dieted and my weight has always fluctuated about 10-20 pounds since I was a teenager. After having my second child I was having a hard time getting the weight off by going to the gym alone (something I’d always done) and decided to track start tracking my macros. Then the challenge came along and I figured, “why not?!”
I have always been physically active growing up, but I have never specifically watched my food intake or tracked any sort of performance gains. Marc first came to me with the idea of beginning to track my food intake and he would help me achieve greater performance gains with his instruction. I was skeptical of this at first because I already thought I was fit and in shape and how much could he really help...Well I was extremely wrong. With Marc behind me I was soon recovering fully after the hardest of workouts and having little to no soreness days later. I also began to see my performance sky rocket, it honestly surprised me. My squat went from 275lbs to 360lbs in about a year while my weight went down around 8 pounds. When I started I was happy with the way I looked and in no way thought I was fat, however with Marc's guidance I soon lost any extra pounds and inches I had and was much happier with how lean and muscular I was looking.
EXCLUSIVE BONUS: Losing fat can be REALLY confusing and hard - so many different factors and people telling you different things.
Through my experience working with HUNDREDS of clients, I've realized it only comes down to three things.
