Whether you prefer flexible dieting, keto, paleo, plant-based or another style of eating, counting macronutrients (macros) is an excellent tool to assess the proper ratio of fats, carbs and protein your body needs to reach your specific goals.
1.👏🏻 Have👏🏼 single-source👏🏽 macros👏🏾 on👏🏿 hand.
Have primarily only one of the three macros: protein, carbs or fats on hand. Having a list of foods to choose from when you have mainly one macro you need to fill is extremely helpful, will help keep things simple and can be a great tool for beginners and for overcoming weight loss plateaus.

This is the oldest trick in the book! Having a meal or snack before hitting the store can be a game changer when it comes to sticking to your grocery list.
Your willpower is finite and takes focus. Imagine what we all could accomplish if our energy wasn’t being wasted on fighting temptations multiple times a day. Here are a few ways you can set your environment up for success:
==Do a kitchen overhaul by keeping whole food and some solid choices readily accessible at all times!
== Shop with a grocery plan! Have a meal beforehand will help too!
== Practice mindful eating by eating slowly, removing distractions and savoring the experience with your food!
What are some of your food best practices? I always have a delicious dessert, every day and that friends, keeps my cravings away 😉
