Hey Everyone! Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve all had great weeks! So a few days ago I posted a pic of me looking very hourglassy in a new PLT lingerie set. My body has gone through some changes since last summer. I haven’t had a gym membership since graduating from Royal Holloway and my obsession to workout everyday for longer than 60 minutes stopped as soon as all my deadlines were over (I think I prefer a fitness themed form of procrastination). I even have a gym no more than 200m from my new apartment, so I really have no excuse to not hit the gym and I actually bloody love going when I do. But I’ve been enjoying my fitness at my own pace, in different places and mixing it up a little bit.
Counting your macro’s isn’t a diet although it can seem that way. It’s mathematically figuring out how many calories you body needs to bulk, maintain or lose weight. It then splits those up into ‘macros’ which are Carbs, Fats and Proteins. You can figure out your macro’s very easily via this site IIFYM. It’s definitely the easiest way of figuring it out without having to do the math for yourself!
The belief is, if you count your macros and don’t hit the gym, you should still end up losing weight. Because whilst you aren’t restricting what you’re eating, you are making sure your body gets only what it needs to either bulk, maintain or lose weight. You can also track your macros and see what ratio of Carbs, fats and proteins they have on an app like Lifesum or MyFitnessPal.
