Advanced Topics In Nutrition: Beyond Macro Tracking
“There is more to nutrition than macros!” “I’ve been tracking macros for years. I need a break.” “When I hit my macros I feel sick.” This kind of feedback may indicate a client is frustrated, burned out, doesn’t understand tracking or they want to quit their program altogether. These units provide ways to adapt nutrition programs by implementing alternative approaches to healthy eating. Learn when to use one of these methods and how to support your client during the process.
1. Intuitive Eating:
Connect with the body to implement this method of healthy eating and learn to make nutrition choices based on an awareness of sensations emitting from your inner-self.
2. Mindful Eating

3. Behavioral Change and Nutrition

4. Willpower and Motivation
Understanding the difference between willpower and motivation can stimulate a successful eating plan. This unit highlights how to define motivating goals, and ward off frustration by following the S.M.A.R.T. criteria.
