You wake up bright and early. Drink your water and fix your breakfast. As we all know tracking first thing in the morning can be like a kid at the candy store. Pretty much anything will fit…..ha ha unless you are on poverty (low) Macros 😢.
Now you are off and on about your day. Lunch time you track accordingly then you get home for dinner as well. You have eaten pretty good all day but you still got a few Macros left over. And now you are like 😨what am I going to eat to hit my numbers without going over on one or the other. Something everybody at some point has or will experience.
So I suggest having some “staple foods” in your house, or wherever you live. This will help you hit those last little bit of macros that are left over.
Here are few suggestions;
-(most) Whey Protein powders
-Fat Free Candy
There are other options but hopefully these are some that can help you as these are a few that came to the top of our head.
For more info:
Eating Fats directly will not make us Fat. Eating a diet high in Fats and high in Carbs (caloric surplus) can make us fat but not directly because of Fats. In fact research shows that a diet high in Fats but low in Carbs leads to more weight loss over low Fat diets.
I mean who doesn’t love eating some Fats? They include delicious foods in their own right like egg yolks, bacon, salmon, olive oil, nuts, salmon, whole fat yogurt, nut butters, cottage cheese, flaxseed. Fats that make already tasty foods a little more flavorful.
