Today has been a week since I’ve started counting macros, and I lost 4 pounds! I don’t think I stayed under my calories one single day and I still lost 4 pounds. BUT, you know what I did do? I ate too many vegetables, too much lean protein, too many healthy fats. I went over my numbers every single day, and I only worked out like 2-3 times? Everyone’s body reacts differently to things, I know I can eat more calories than I’m “supposed to” and that revs my metabolism and I know that my body reacts better and faster to strength training than cardio. No one diet is right for everyone, your body is going to thrive when you give it what it needs. Listen to your body and put whole foods into it and you’ll get the progress you want.
