Are you losing weight but not happy with how you look?
Losing Weight is not the same as Losing Fat
“Focusing on specific macro targets instead of just calories overall has changed my body composition”--Jen (Pictured Below)
Not only did Jen (pictured below) lose 30lbs, her body composition also changed. She decreased her belly fat while keeping most of her muscle mass.
Weight Loss and Fat Loss are very different
Weight loss is losing mostly muscle and water weight and little bit of fat.
This shows a huge number change on the scale because muscle is denser than fat.
Fat loss is losing lots of fat and little bit of muscle.
This doesn’t show a huge difference on the scale, you would see more of a change by how your body physically looks and how your clothes fit.
Counting your Macros will Help you Sculpt a Strong, Lean Body
Counting only calories will not help you shape and build the body you want.
To flatten your stomach and tone your thighs you have to eat the right amount of Proteins, Carbs and Fats.
For example: If your protein is too low and your carbs are too high, your muscles wont be fed and instead of increasing muscle mass and burning fat your body will burn your muscle and keep your fat stores (Located mostly in your stomach)
This is why: you have to find your perfect Marco ratios to achieve your dream body goals.
“Diet is everything! I used to think I ate ‘healthy’ and I always wondered why I didn’t look the way I wanted to. But now I know why. Now I eat so much more protein to fuel my muscles. I didn’t really take anything out of my diet, just changed the content of what I was eating.”[i]-Sara( Pictured below)
Knowing the amount of Carbs, Protein, and Fats to eat will help you optimize your weight loss. You will burn more fat while keeping your muscle mass, which will you get a tighter and leaner body you can be proud to show off!
