Now that I'm at my healthy weight, I continue with my Monday Macros tradition to keep an eye on what I'm eating and help to ensure I don't start having any leaks in my plan.
My primary focus is on my carb/fat/protein macros. When you are following the Primal Blueprint or a Paleo lifestyle, calories are not quite as important as when eating grains, sugars, and more processed foods.
Here are my first Monday Macros on the new blog.
Weight = 141. Weight gain/loss this period = 0 lb. Total weight loss = 110lbs. Macros for the week = Carb/Fat/Prot - 23/56/21%. Daily avg cals = 2429. Body Fat = 9.8%.
My weight is too low, I know. I lost over 10 pounds during my last infection. I dropped a couple of more pounds early in the week, and have gained back to 141. My goal is to get back over 150 lbs in the next couple of months. I want to put back on the weight, but not just for the sake of putting on weight. I would much rather it be in my muscles than my belly :)
The total weight loss of 110 lbs is from March of 2014 when I started following the Primal Blueprint. I have been heavier, but I'm only tracking weight after starting the PB.
My carbs are a little higher than what I shoot for percentage wise, but they still average under 150 gr/day so I'm good to go there. Protein averaged 129 gr/day, which is good for my current activity levels, and the fats are spot on to get my calories up to my 2500 cal/day average goal.
This is a graph of my weight over the past year:
I am very happy with that chart. It shows just how well the Primal Blueprint is working for me.
If you have any questions of how I chose my macros, calorie goals, or pretty much anything else concerning my Monday Macros, please ask. I will be very happy to share my thoughts.
