“The best part of the diet is how easy it is to adhere to. I never feel like I’m missing out or limiting myself, I can enjoy my favourite foods and eat grown up (read: monstrous) portions. I’m also sharper and more energetic than ever with my new macro-nutrient make up.
Weighing food and managing macros might seem daunting at first, but really it’s surprisingly simple. I started out with 2 or 3 staple meals and it allowed me to get into the habit of controlling my intake on a beginner’s level. These days I can eyeball foods, adjust my daily intake on the fly and eat basically whatever while always staying within my macros. It’s a great skill to have because it means I’m never left wanting for anything and yet I stay very lean.”
