Weekly Fat Loss #1 - Step 1 Getting Started
Self Assessment & Habit Formation
1. The Basics
There are a few BASIC things you need to know before jumping in. I’m going to assume you understand what macros and calories are at a very basic level. You may have heard these concepts and have a general idea but here are a few key points before getting started.
Calories - a unit of energy, often used to express the nutritional value of foods
3 Macronutrients (Macros)
Protein (4 calories/gram)
Carbohydrates (4 calories/gram)
Fats (9 calories/gram)
2. Self Assessment
Before building a diet, you need to assess your daily/weekly intake, currently.
Don’t put on a performance for yourself. Eat what you would normally eat, just track it, meal to meal.
We are interested in how much protein, carbs, fat and calories we intake per day on average.
1-2 Week Period
Get familiar with your macronutrient intake per day.
3. Continue Tracking Macros
Continue tracking to get into the habit.
We can make smart choices of how to cut fat in the future but the most important lesson here is to get into the habit of tracking everything you eat.
