So question, my daughter told me to watch my macros, this is do hard, does anyone do the macros? and were you able to lose weight, I am going to the gym, she is teaching me how to use the weights there, but I have some medical problems, I have RA and it affects my hands on how I do some of the weights, I do have it in my feet too, but I am going to lose weight, but I have to be honest this is so hard, if any one out there that has any other ideas that can help I am all ears.
I log everything I eat in my fitness pal! You can scan whatever you are eating or even say the name of a restaurant and what you got there and pretty much any food you can dream of. It breaks down your calories, and breaks it up into macros in a super easy pie chart (macros, fat, carbs). Once you see how you are eating you will start to figure out how to log it and how good/bad it is for you. It’s soooo easy to use! Maybe you will hate it but for me just starting out it’s been really helpful! Good luck!
If you’re too confused by counting macros, then worry about two things; don’t go over your calorie limit for the day, and make SURE you hit your protein intake for the day. The rest of the calories from carbs and fats will fall into place!
