What nutritional program do you follow?
I count macro nutrients (macros). This means keeping track of my daily intake of carbs, fats and protein to achieve my fitness goals. Macros vary person to person based on factors such as height, weight, metabolism, goals, etc. You can read an intro to macros here.
How do I find out what my macros should be?
I recommend a macros coach! I use the Ledbetter program. It is a fee upfront, but once you join them you are a part of the family for life and it’s 100% worth it. If you aren’t ready to join them, the best online (free) macro calculator is IIFYM. Keep in mind it isn’t as personalized and you will be better off in the long run with a coach.
What app do you use to log your food?
My Fitness Pal.
What can I do to stay motivated?
Understand that at the end of the day, the motivation has to come from YOU. How badly do YOU want it? If you are struggling to get your workouts in or stick to your meal plan you might need to take a step back and re-evaluate your goals and your commitment. Motivation can only go so far. You need disciple and drive to create good habits that will turn into a lifestyle. I won’t tell you it’s easy, but you CAN do it!
Can I spot train a specific area to lose fat (ex: target fat loss in stomach)?
Unfortunately, no. You can do exercises that target a specific area of your body, but ultimately fat loss happens steadily throughout your entire body. Be patient!
What’s your height and weight?
5′ 8″ and about 125 pounds.
