This week it’s all about MACROS. Macronutrients, that is, and the nutrition plans based on counting and measuring them.

If you are curious about Macro plans and want to try it out with coaching and a small group, you can check out Kristin’s program, Primal Precision, which starts on Jan 8.

Macronutrient-based plans are gaining in popularity as a tool to help folks reach their fat loss, performance, or muscle gaining goals. Taylor Oclott of SheThrivesBlog recently wrote a Macros 101 post and joins Kristin today to discuss all things Macro.

Topics include:

Our personal experiences with macro plans
When low carb doesn’t work
Why low carb may be inappropriate for CrossFitters or athletes
Macronutrient basics
Percentages vs grams for measuring
Macros and celiacs disease
Finding coaches and support
Who macro plans are good for and who should proceed with caution

A big welcome to Javazen! Our newest sponsor addition!


Javazen is the Evolution of Coffee — a blend of organic coffee with adaptogenic teas and nutrient-dense superfoods in perfect harmony. The company was founded by 3 college roommates that wanted more fromunknown coffee than jitters, a bitter taste, and a lack of nutrients. Javazen is 100% organic, paleo friendly, gluten free, sugar free, kosher, and it also tastes great! The company believes in their product so much that they are willing to give away a FREE sample. That’s right, all you have to do is pay for shipping and you will receive one of each of their three blends. Their new Brew Bags are single serving ‘tea bags’ filled with Javazen. All you have to do is steep in hot water like tea for 4 minutes and enjoy. These are great to throw in your gym bag, purse, or briefcase so that you always have a healthy cup of coffee with you on the go.
