3 Reasons You Aren’t Seeing Results with Macro Tracking

Many clients come to me with a similar story. Maybe you can relate.

Dear Loren,

Can you help? I have been counting macros for several weeks. I am also working out 7 days a week and still not seeing any results. Plus, I am tired all of the time. What am I doing wrong? I am so frustrated!

It may seem like you are doing everything right.

You’ve used an online macro calculator and started tracking your macros. You are killing it in your workout classes; never missing. You’re even using collagen and protein supplements. 

You begin to think there’s got to be something wrong with your body.

But if you look a little deeper, it’s easy to see what’s up.

  1. The general online macro calculators you find online don’t take into account the following: your goals, stress levels, daily activity, and previous history. Many calculators are extremely off and will have you undereating! When clients work directly with me as a certified coach, I set each client up with personalized macros. 
  2. You are doing too much of the wrong type of exercise. Since you’ve been taught in order to lose weight, you need to eat less and exercise more. It’s easy to think more is better when it comes to exercise. But not necessarily. Doing too much cardio can cause a lot of stress to your body. And too much stress equals a no-go on fat loss. The good news, short but intense 30-minute workouts that focus on strength training and progress overload can get you the lean, sculpted body you desire. 
  3. Your addition of supplements is a helpful first step. But one big mistake I see women make is adding supplements to a diet filled with processed foods. The supplements don’t really change much if you are still eating the wrong types of foods in the wrong amounts. 

As a certified coach, here’s how we fix things together. 

  1. When clients work directly with me as their coach, I set each client up with personalized macros. You’ll learn exactly what to eat and in what amounts for you, your lifestyle, and your personal preferences. 
  2. Instead of hours of long boring cardio, I recommend you replace your cardio sessions with short but intense 30-minute workouts. Workouts that focus on strength training and progressive overload so you can build the lean, sculpted body you desire. 
  3. If you want real results, it’s time to level up your nutrition. This means swapping processed foods for whole, unprocessed foods at least 80% of the time. Clients are amazed at how much better they feel. Once you switch your foods to whole foods, your energy increases, digestion improves, and your overall health skyrockets. Your “taste preferences” can even change. I can’t tell you how many clients remark that their sweet tooth monster is a thing of the past.
