Paleo vs. Marcos
Honestly, because Nicole is tired of Paleo but Stacie still wants to do it! We thought it'd be fun to pit one team against the other and see what the results are. Who doesn't love a little added competition?
INCHES - Ask Nicole or Stacie to measure you week 1 and at the end of week 4. We will measure your arm, your waist, your hips, your chest, and your thigh.
PERCENT BODY FAT - Ask Nicole or Stacie to measure you week 1 and at the end of week 4. Your triceps, hip, and thigh will be pinched and compared to your age for a % body fat.
FOOD POINTS - How do I keep track of all of this??
Negative Points - Applies to Both Teams
How to Count Your Points on Paleo:
How To Count Your Points on Macros:
To calculate macro points, we have decided to use the MyFitnessPal app. It's pretty user friendly, many of us are already familiar with it, and they have a great big database of foods.
Q: What are macronutrients?
A: "Big" nutrients. The ones that give you calories: carbohydrate, protein, and fat.
Q: Why does it matter?
A: Counting calories alone isn't enough. You can eat a low calorie diet and lose weight, but if 90% of the calories are carbohydrate, you're going to be screwing with your insulin levels and the weight won't stay off. And you might be setting yourself up for insulin resistance and no one wants that.
Your macros will be calculated based off of the calories calculated in the app when you tell it your height, weight, sex, activity level, and age.
