Macronutrient Tracking for Weight Loss
MACRONUTRIENT TRACKING FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Macro tracking is a science-based tool that can help your most difficult patient lose weight. Research shows that daily tracking of foods and beverages is a habit commonly shared by those who successfully lose weight and keep it off. Tracking foods with a focus on specific macronutrient targets considers not only total energy but also the breakdown of percentage of calories from protein, carbs and fats. Macro tracking is also known as flexible dieting as it allows for indulgences that fit within the macro targets. This training will help you understand the science behind macro tracking for weight loss and the simple step by step process for implementing this approach with your patient or client population.
