One Macro Hack to Help You Get Better Results

by | Mar 10, 2022

There’s one simple nutrition/ macro hack that can dramatically improve your consistency and prevent you from burning out.

Have you ever felt like a slave to the numbers?

You get a macro plan from a coach or a calculator and you’re committed to following through.

You even preplan all of your meals so that there’s zero doubt you’ll be hitting your numbers down to the gram.

You display epic amounts of willpower when you hit your macro targets for the day but are still hungry.

You are determined to be perfect.

And then … one decision happens.

One slip up and it’s all over.

Even if it’s just 5-10 grams over your targets … you feel like a failure.

Then you spiral out of control for a bit.

And ultimately vow to do better next time (aka be more perfect).

What if you could make one simple adjustment to avoid that burn out?

What if you completely eliminated the need for perfection with this one simple macro hack?

A macro hack that keeps you on track

Ok fine, I’ll tell you but forewarning …

It’s actually dumb how easy it is.

And you might even question my sanity.

Or think it’s too simple to work.

You ready?

Here it is …

Work in ranges instead of absolutes.


What I mean is this …

Instead of an exact calorie target, use a calorie range.

Instead of trying to hit 2107 calories on the dot …

Try to hit between 1900-2200.

Instead of trying to hit 150g of protein on the dot …

Try to hit between 140-160g of protein.

You get the gist?

Here’s why this is so effective …

Like I mentioned above, it takes perfection off the table.

It gives you more grace.

It allows you to have more freedom in the process so you can adjust and adapt more easily.

Which prevents burn out.

And it sends the message that “close enough” is often good enough.

Remember, unless you’re a body builder or bikini competitor or someone who’s trying to compete at a high level …

You don’t need to be so exact.

You don’t need to stress yourself out.

Give yourself some wiggle room.

What do you think about this strategy?

You willing to give it a shot?
