Hey there!

I'm Tina

Hi, guys!

Macro counting is quite the trend these days. Obviously, I believe in using tracking as a health and weight loss tool. I mean, I’m all about carrots and cake!

Macros, as a framework, is great for so many reasons. Personally, it keeps me “honest” about my nut butter (and wine) obsession, but I know the pros and cons of the process, especially working with nutrition clients over the years. It’s exciting to “hit your macros” and see progress, but sometimes tracking becomes a bit addictive or overwhelming if you want to be “perfect” all the time.

In my opinion, accepting the fact that you’re perfectly imperfect is a much healthier lifestyle. If anything, counting macros gives you the freedom to enjoy any food that you want, as long as you balance the rest of your choices. And, if you don’t balance those choices to a tee, it’s not the end of the world. Macros keep you in line, but they are not the end all, be all, domination of your diet. Healthy eating is not black and white, and tracking macros can really help you thrive in the daily gray area!

For me, macros have an important place in my life, but they are not my WHOLE life. I use them as a guide for mindful choices in my diet, especially with regards to building well-balanced, satisfying meals and snacks. It’s also helpful to see when I’m eating too much junk!

It’s all about a healthy balance – with both food and mindset alike – so I created this “Macro Tracking Without the Hassle” guide to share some of my tips for tracking without being obsessed with the numbers and making yourself crazy. It also includes 3 of my favorite macro-friendly recipes! To access, this FREE guide, just click here to sign up!



  1. Do you think you could do a Macros for Dummies post? Literally breaking down the basics behind the entire concept: what are macros, how do I know how many I need, how to break them down and make a plan, why this is better than just calorie counting or a diet like going low carb where you just eat as much if certain food should and avoid certain food groups all together, what physical goals tracking macros can help with etc? I’ve read your blog since your old Harvard job, and love the blog, but I feel lost about the macro thing totally!!!

    1. I agree with Teresa! The whole macros thing totally baffles me. But I would love to understand it better. I need a very basic , ground level overview though!
