K, you have been warned. Macronutrients macros for short are what makes up the calorie content of food. The three categories of macros are fats, carbohydrates, and protein.

It is important to count your macros and not just your calories because where you are getting your calories from really does matter. Getting the right amount of protein, fat, and carbs will determine whether you are building or losing muscle and whether you are putting on or losing fat. We all have different fitness goals so it is important to track your macros according to what your goals are… but we will get into that later. You have probably heard me talking a lot about protein at this point if you follow me on social media, or have done any of my programs… I am simply a belieber-I mean believer -in the power of protein.

Hey, Justin Bieber, I see you too… but… protein still takes the cake. Protein is the most essential macronutrient for those trying to reach their fitness goals. Prioritizing protein will help you to build muscle and help to prevent muscle loss. It is also the most satiating macro, helping you to be able to stave off hunger and feel fuller longer.

When it comes to getting results, your recovery is just as important as your workout. We get our main source of energy from carbohydrates. As a mom, businesswoman and athlete, I simply need energy to get through the day, as I am always go-go-go! I am sure so many of you can relate. Guys, life just gets really busy. Carbs are vital to physical activity and important for our mental health. There are two different kinds of carbs: Simple Carbs- These are easily digested so they will provide us with some quick energy.

Complex carbs also provide more sustained energy than simple carbs. Fats help to keep our hormone levels in balance and they are essential nutrients that our bodies need to live. Make sure that you are getting your fats from healthy sources and stay away from trans-fats, as these foods will not help you to reach your fitness goals. Good sources for fats: Fish oil, salmon, walnuts. Counting your macros is so so important! Getting the right amount of protein, carbs, and fat into your macro diet will help you to reach your fitness goals, whether you are trying to lose some weight, put on muscle, etc.

Meal plans should have a good balance of all three macros. When your diet is too low in protein you could end up losing muscle instead of fat, which can result in a slower metabolism. To count macros you need to determine how much of each macronutrient you need daily, which is based on your individual body composition and fitness goals.

Once determined, you go beyond just counting calories and track how many grams of carbs, fat, and protein a food will provide.

You can then plan your macro diet around foods that will help you reach your daily macro targets. By tracking your macros you really are tracking your calories, but instead of just skimming the surface you are going into more depth. In case you missed the graphic above, here are the conversions from grams to calories for carbs, fat, and protein.

Your calories will be where they need to be when you are hitting your macros. When looking at a nutrition label you just need to look at serving size, total fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.

Our case studies span a range of industries, sizes and strategic needs - but are united by a focus on practical behavioural change - at a personal, team and organizational level. We ignite change by applying the principles of behavioral science in a managed process over several months: Multi-level leadership from boardroom to front line is an increasingly important driver of organizational performance. Potentialife leverages a proprietary blend of online technology, process nudges and in-person support to make it possible to reach people throughout your organization, regardless of your geographic dispersion.

Every organization has their own beliefs and values that define the leadership behaviors that will lead to success. We partner with you to craft a change narrative that establishes the link between your personal development journey and the business strategy, and we then design tailored programs accordingly. We track behavioral KPIs and align with business metrics over the course of the intervention and beyond.

Drawing on Positive Psychology, the five categories that explain most of the variance in peak performance behaviors, make up the components of SHARP: Strengths, Health, Absorption, Relationships, and Purpose. We draw on behavioral and neuroscience to integrate the principles of successful change into our LifeTuning process.

The program is designed to make deep-reaching and lasting behavioural change possible across your organization.
