While counting calories may be more accurate than simply “watching what you eat,” it certainly can become a cumbersome chore each day. Beyond that, the results you achieve are much more related to the the types of foods you eat than calories alone, which makes the below superior (and more convenient) “counting” method one of my go-to techniques for accurately and ideally determining the amount of food you should eat each day to support your body transformation goals.
I call it the 1-100-1/2 method:
**1 gram of protein per pound of body weight
**Less than 100 grams of carbs per day (less than 60 grams for women)
**1/2 gram of fat per pound of body weight
This simple macronutrient counting method works for just about anyone looking to shed flab fast and without having to count every single calorie.
Why does it work? Well, it’s relative to your body size, gives you plenty of metabolism-boosting protein each day, keeps carbohydrates moderate (on which most people tend to easily go overboard), and also provides you with plenty of healthy fats.
Even better, by using this much easier counting method, you’ll automatically be controlling your calorie intake at the same time! What’s more, the 1-100-1/2 method also ensures you are getting a balance of each major nutrient. If only counting calories, your diet could actually be very imbalanced. Just think if you ate 1800 calories of M&Ms each day; you’d hit your calorie goal, but your body wouldn’t be too pleased with you!
And for the carb lovers out there, don’t worry, I still advocate a weekly “cheat day” where you can refuel and indulge in your favorite high-carb foods while actually speeding your fat loss along.
