Time to set the record straight...
We've all used online macro calculators (this girl included).
And for some of us, it's worked great, and we saw progress, yay!
But for most of us (this girl included again), the macros were way off, too low in calories, macro ratios were all off, we interpreted the activity level part wrong and messed up the result, and we were left feeling hungry, defeated, and more frustrated than before.
That's because your body is not a machine. It is SO different from every other human's body on planet earth, and it's impossible to think that a simple algorithm can take 6 data points, know everything about you and give you a perfect plan.
Did you know that DLDNation actually has a free macro calculator on our website?
WHY WOULD I DO THAT if this is how I feel?!
Because we were driven to figure out a way to try and encourage those who refuse to invest in themselves to take interest in their health and their bodies. These are the same people who will adamantly use a calculator no matter what I, or any other coach or healthcare professional says...
And it's a start.
Helping people a little is always better than not helping people at all.
But know this: even if you found the BEST macro calculator in the world and got a macro set that is nothing but a baseline test, a starting point.
Those macros need to be evaluated and adjusted, based on the biofeedback from your body to ensure you are progressing while staying safe.
AND YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW HOW TO COLLECT OR INTERPRET BIOFEEDBACK AND MAKE MACRO ADJUSTMENT!
Just because you own a car doesn't mean you are the mechanic to fix it.
If you truly want to learn about macros and how they can help you achieve your goals, consider making an actual investment in yourself to do it the right way. Don't you feel you deserve that? (Hint: you do!)
