There are countless potential pitfalls that cause some people to underestimate their logging. We are trying to help those who think they are doing everything right, but maybe are missing some things on accident.
Here's a stat:
As of 3/26/18: 96.15% (250 out of 260) of our clients who do an accuracy review either see progress or identify the reason they haven't been seeing progress!
Here are the steps!
1: Get your weight, first thing in the morning before you do anything else.
2: Throughout the day, take a picture of every single thing you eat or drink and make sure you log all of it in MyFitnessPal.
3: Make sure it’s an A+ day that hits all three of your daily targets. (At or under caloric target, at or over protein %, at or under carb %.)
4: Get your weight again, first thing the next morning before you do anything else.
5: CLICK HERE to send a text to with all of the following:

MACRO AWARENESS VENN DIAGRAM
This venn diagram is intended for clients that are newer to the program and working to develop a general awareness of how certain food choices will cause your percentages to shift. Knowing what you can/can't fit into your targets, in any given situation, makes it so much easier to get great results!
WEIGHING, MEASURING, & ESTIMATING
Weigh your food in grams when you can.
Measure your food when you can't measure it.
Estimate your serving size using the serving size resource below and use the 1.25 estimation method broken down in our FAQ when you can't weigh or measure.
OVER 50% CALORIES FROM PROTEIN GROUPINGS
Every food on this list has a minimum of 50% calories from protein.
I've broken the choices up into different categories that you can refer to based on your specific needs.
For example, if you're well over on carbs and low on protein, you can use the "pure protein" list or the "protein & some fat" list.
Hitting your minimum protein target is, for most, the hardest daily target on the Macroholics program. Every food here will have a significant impact on your percentages assuming that your food choice accounts for a significant portion of your daily calories.
ESTIMATING SERVING SIZES USING HAND & COMMON ITEMS
TRACKING ALCOHOL CORRECTLY
Don’t log alcohol as just calories. Follow these steps when you log it! Drinking responsibly and results are not mutually exclusive. But taking into account the hormonal impact that the 4th macronutrient, alcohol, has on our body is important. Ignoring this aspect gives us the illusion that we are in a good hormonal state for fat loss when we really aren’t.
