Macro counting is the ultimate self-accountability tool for fat loss.  It is extremely effective for helping you eat balanced macros in portions appropriate for your needs, based on size, goals and activity level.  In My FASTER Way to Fat Loss plan, I recommend macro counting as a way to ensure you are eating enough and in proper amounts - believe it or not, most us of

have been chronically under-eating, which has slowed down weight loss!

Making sure you are getting enough macros - protein, fat and carbohydrates - and that you're eating macros in balance is a surefire way to boost energy, build muscle and burn fat.

However tracking can be a difficult habit to develop!  If tracking is a hurdle for you and if your goal is optimal health and weight maintenance the Build Your Plate method is a great alternative. 

The "plate method" is a new way to meet your macro goals.  It's all about using your plate as guide to achieving macro balance versus tracking macros on paper or in an app.


For many people, macro tracking in an app is exactly what is needed to in balance, however deciding what is right for YOU is a choice between GOOD, BETTER and BEST practices:

  • GOOD: Plate method gives you more flexibility, less time consuming, and benefits of good nutrition. Is more intuitive, not exact.  Good for health improvements, weight maintenance/loss, traveling, eating out/not preparing own food.

  • BETTER: Tracking without weighing helps you make good decisions and learn how to balance portions, macros.  Good for health improvements, steady weight loss. 

  • BEST: Tracking and weighing food is better for portion control, more accountability and likely faster results. Good if you have a very specific goal and are on a timeline.
