filed under:



One of the things that saddens me in today’s world is seeing beautiful peaches like you suffer due to the harmful diet industry. It breaks my heart to see you miss out on life, lacking energy, and unable to fully enjoy activities with friends and loved ones. It’s time to change that. Tracking macros can be a solution to help you regain energy, feel good in your body, and improve your overall well-being.

I personally know the struggles of being stuck in a cycle of low calorie intake, binge eating, and constantly switching diets. I used to believe that certain foods were off-limits and that I had to restrict myself to achieve my goals. It was a constant battle with my body and food.

But after discovering macros and incorporating them into my life, everything changed. I learned how to nourish my body properly and found food freedom. Now, I can enjoy holidays, vacations, and special occasions without fear of derailing my progress. It’s a liberating feeling.

In this episode, I will walk you through the steps I took to transform my relationship with food and my body. I will share the knowledge and action steps that have helped not only me but also thousands of clients. It’s time to break free from the diet mentality and create a sustainable, enjoyable lifestyle.

Step 1: Making the Decision to Change

The first and most important step is to make the decision that you are ready for a change. It’s crucial to commit to yourself and those around you that you are dedicated to improving your well-being. This shift in mindset will set the foundation for your journey.

Step 2: Embracing Education

Education is key to understanding your body and the reasons why previous approaches may not have worked for you. I encourage you to unlearn the diet mentality and seek knowledge about your metabolism, nutrition, and how your body functions. This will help you disconnect from the diet industry and make informed choices.

Step 3: Finding a Sustainable Solution

It’s essential to find a sustainable and maintainable approach to tracking macros that fits into your lifestyle. This means enjoying a wide variety of foods and not feeling restricted or deprived. A balanced and flexible approach will lead to long-term success.

Step 4: Prioritizing Yourself

Putting yourself first is crucial for your overall well-being. It’s okay to prioritize your own health and happiness. When your cup is full, you can better serve others and have a positive impact on those around you. Remember, self-care is not selfish.

Step 5: Seeking Reliable Resources

Instead of overwhelming yourself with Google searches, invest in reliable resources that can fast-track your progress. Consider working with a coach who can provide personalized guidance and support. Finding the right coach who understands your needs and goals is essential.

By following these steps, you can transform your relationship with food, heal your metabolism, and achieve sustainable results. It won’t happen overnight, but with dedication and the right approach, you can create a lifestyle that allows you to thrive.

Remember, you are worthy of feeling amazing in your body and having a healthy relationship with food. It’s time to take control of your journey and embrace the power of tracking macros. You deserve to live your best life.
