Episode 97: Adjusting Macros to Avoid Weight Loss Plateaus

filed under:



What is today’s episode? We’ll be discussing the importance of adjusting macros to avoid weight loss plateaus. Specifically, if you’ve been tracking your macros but haven’t seen any changes, I’ll walk you through four questions to help you assess the situation. These questions will help you identify any adjustments you may need to make in order to get out of that plateau.

But before we dive in, I want to remind you that if you have any topics you’d like me to cover on the podcast, please reach out to me on Instagram or TikTok. You can find me at C S C H M I D T period, fit. Now, let’s get started with episode 97: Adjusting Macros to Avoid Weight Loss Plateaus.

First, let’s talk about the importance of having your macros calculated correctly. Using generic calculators that only consider your height, weight, age, and activity level may not give you accurate results. It’s essential to consider your metabolic intake and your diet history, which these calculators can’t account for. Avoid relying on apps like MyFitnessPal to calculate your macros. Instead, I recommend using a reliable macro calculator like My Macros Plus.

Next, it’s crucial to consistently hit your macros. This can be challenging when faced with real-world situations like eating out or attending social events. However, learning how to navigate these situations and still hit your macros is key to your success. If you need guidance in this area, feel free to reach out to me for resources and support.

Now, let’s address how long you’ve been tracking your macros. It’s important to give your body time to adapt and see results. Panicking and making immediate adjustments after just a few days or weeks of tracking may not be helpful. Remember, progress takes time, and consistency is key. Trust the process and be patient.

I hope these questions and insights help you in adjusting your macros effectively. Remember, knowledge is power, and taking care of your body and health is a journey. Don’t be too hard on yourself, and embrace the process of sustainable and realistic fat loss.

That’s all for today’s episode. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
