Steve, Eric, and Brian discuss the benefits of not having specific carbohydrate and fat targets, as well as components of your diet that are important for overall health, the way you feel, and achieving your physique goals.
What is “The Athlete’s Plate”? What do the coaches like to have their athletes and clients pay attention to besides their calorie and macronutrient intake? How does Steve have his clients track their protein intake when they are no longer tracking their calorie intake? When are good times to pay attention to how different foods make you feel? Is feeling bloated at times normal? Is being hungry at times normal? What happens if you are overly focused on your body’s response to different foods?
