a better way to diet

Nutrition

With the new six-week Commit To Be Fit program starting up again this week, I wanted to take this opportunity to discuss macros, calorie counting and how to diet without starving yourself or giving up three days in.

Let me preface this post by saying this: I love carbs. Pasta, pizza, fruit, potatoes, rice, fibrous veggies, muffins and baked goods of all creeds– they’ve been my undoing during every attempted paleo or low-carb diet plan. It wasn’t until I recently heard of the concept of macros- of fitting in a certain percentage of nutrients into your diet that I realized I could have my cake, and eat it too.
