Are you scared of macros?

Calories & macros explained in 20 seconds...

Straight up, if you’re a big motherfucker and don’t make it to the end of what I've written here, it’s literally the reason why you’ll have 6 Yorkshire puds on your dinner, compared to everyone else’s 2.

Calories:

A calorie is simply a measurement of energy and the food we eat contains calories.

Our brain, muscles, every cell in our body, requires energy to operate.

So your body burns a certain amount of calories a day. Everyone is different.

  • If you consume MORE calories from FOOD, than calories your body BURNS, you will literally transform into a Yorkshire fkn puddin.
  • If you consume LESS calories from FOOD, than calories your body BURNS, you will lose F@T.

If you’ve made it this far, well fking done.

Macros:

The calories you consume are made up of different food groups.

  • Protein: fish, chicken, dairy, tofu, eggs
  • Carbs: bread, pasta, potatoes, cookies
  • Fats: avocado, chocolate, butter, ice cream

Those 3 right there are your macros (protein, carbs, fat = Macros). That word ain’t so scary now is it ya fkn stress head.

Okay, I know this is longer than 20 seconds, but so f#%k, this is free content that could change your life.

So we know the 'calories in vs calories out' rule dictates your body fat percentage, and we know the calories you consume are made up of macros (food groups). Did you fking know though, different macros have different calorie values?

That’s right motherfkrs, fat is more dense in calories.

That doesn’t mean eating fat makes you fat.

Remember eating more CALORIES is what makes you fucking fat - this is what we teach on the Life Plan. We want you to eat foods you enjoy, whilst operating in a sustainable caloric deficit.

Food like pizza, ice cream, and chocolate are high in grams of fat, so, if you eat lots of high fat foods, it will likely put you into a caloric surplus .

Lets take a look at this image below:

Right so as you can see, the red is protein, blue is carbs, and green is fats... Go and look at the foods first.

Those foods are HIGH in that macro, so...

  • Chicken is high in protein but low in fat and carbs.
  • Fruit is high in carbs but low in fats and protein.
  • Avocado is high in fats but low in carbs and protein.

What we do at Team RH:

On the Life Plan, we set you X amount of calories, these calories are made up of specific macros. It may look something like:

  • 120g protein
  • 50G fat
  • 250g carbs

If we add these up above, by their multipliers that I mentioned earlier:

  • 120g protein x 4 = 480 calories
  • 50G fat x 9 - 450 calories
  • 250g carbs x 4 = 1,000 calories

Total = 1,930 calories

Ah you know what I'm gonna do a video, this is doing my fkn tits in.

I hope all this makes sense to you all. Don't ever give up okay, because I promise this is the KEY to your future happiness.
