It’s important to have a rough idea of how much energy your body requires daily to support
a healthy and functioning body. One way to do this, is to count calories.
Your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) is the amount of calories you burn in a day. Using
this figure is it possible to roughly calculate what your daily calories should be if you want to achieve fat loss.
You may have heard the word ‘macros’ being thrown around near the dumbbell curls section
of your local gym. Your 'macros' is short for the macronutrients that are protein,
carbohydrate and fats.
Basically, based on your current weight, age, height, physical activity level and body
composition goals, it’s possible to work out roughly how many calories of each type of
macronutrient you need to consume each meal for fat loss.
If you don’t want to be on the cover of a fitness magazine though, don’t worry, there are
other ways to know roughly how much you should eat at each meal, like using the palm of
your hand as reference guide.
Once you learn how to portion your meals with protein, carbohydrates and fats, then you’ll
have that skill with you for life. Book a consultation to find out your numbers
