Nutritional Swiss Army Knife

Blog Single


Have you ever felt like you were working so hard with your nutrition but not making any progress? Adee and Micheal just may have a solution for you. In this episode, they talk about how when it comes to nutrition, your Swiss Army Knife is the ability to weigh, track and measure your food and hit a certain set of macros.

While strict tracking doesn't have to be forever, learning how to do so for a period of time can help you understand the specific balance of foods your body needs to reach your goals.

And once you nail being strict for a while, it’s much easier to be more lenient with your tracking later on. Listen in as they go through Adee’s personal experience with tracking, what you can learn from it, how to get started and resources to swap to intuitive eating.
