Have you heard of anyone say “if it fits in your macros?” Counting Macros is just another way of dieting in which you count your intake of the three macronutrients – carbs, fats and protein. The diet aims to not eliminate any specific nutrient (like keto eliminating carbs) but rather eat a balance of them. If counting your macros sounds amazing, because hey, you could make any food fit, it comes with a warning. Counting macros requires a lot of time and attention to detail. Scott and Melanie also talk about training your taste buds to like healthier foods.
Check-In With Scott: Taking a Break
Scott took a week off from exercising. He also admits that he has been hating the gym. Melanie tells Scott that taking a break can be great for your mental health when you are not enjoying exercise. It can even help with muscle development if that is a goal for you. She also reminds Scott that exercise does not always have to happen in a gym. You can go biking, hiking or even just walk you dog.
