Episode 13 - Confirmation Bias in Dieting
When pursuing a fitness goal, are we just a part of a self-fulfilling prophecy? It's human nature to gravitate towards things you agree with or make you feel comfortable. This is especially true in the fitness industry and how we feel about different approaches and strategies. Tyler and Lee Ann dig deeper into how examining our own bias can negatively impact your progress, and how stepping out of your comfort zone can help you reach your goals!

Episode 11 - What is Intuitive Eating?
Intuitive Eating is something that is often marketed as another dieting strategy - when in fact, it is not. Intuitive eating is the ability to eat food, without tracking, without food focus, and maintain weight and good performance in physical activities. But how do we get there? What does that journey look like? Tyler and Lee Ann take a closer look at Intuitive Eating and what it could mean for YOU.

Episode 10 - What Happens When The Diet Is Over?
In theory, dieting is easy - eat less and move more. In theory, you diet and you lose the weight then you just magically retain all the results! Right? WRONG! In order the to maintain what you've worked for, realistically, you'd have to maintain everything you're doing while dieting. And you (no one) can diet forever. And even that isn't a realistic situation to be in because of metabolic adaptations. Our bodies are smarter than we are. But there is a better way that takes a lot of time and effort, and is almost as (sometimes more) tricky as the diet itself. You have to get yourself out of the diet, on the other side, and learn how to maintain your progress and still live life, and learn some REAL lessons on how to keep yourself in check when the diet is over. Tune in to hear some real and raw info on how to sustain your results after the diet is over!

Episode 8 - The Scale
We all know the scale has it's ups and downs (haha we're so punny) but truly it's important to realize - especially for beginner - what it does and does NOT show in regards to progress.⁠ We also touch on what things can cause a swing in weight, and the importance of averages vs. daily numbers and give some alternatives to tracking progress that have nothing to do with the number you see.

Episode 7 - Alcohol and Macros
⁠ Alcohol has become such a social item. It’s hard to not go to a dinner with friends, hit up a happy hour after work, or enjoy a romantic night out without alcohol involved.

How does it impact your general lifestyle, or competition athletes? Let’s find out!

Episode 6 - Macro Myth Buster: #TeamNoDaysOff
It can be easy on the hunt for a fitness-minded lifestyle to adopt the ‘more is better’ mentality. More lifting, more cardio, more restriction… but sometimes, and not to be cliche, less IS more. It can be very easy to get caught up in the #nodaysoff mentality but that can also quickly cause burnout and frustration. The reason for this is our body actually needs time away from the physical strain in order to heal, build, and grow. So finding the balance between activity and recovery is imperative to making fitness a sustainable lifestyle, and what that looks like can vary from person to person. So let’s go ahead and break the myth that #nodaysoff is sustainable and doable and get some perspective on what a long-term sustainable lifestyle can look like.

Episode 4 - Macro Budgeting: How to make the MOST out of your macros!
On today’s episode we talk about Macro Budgeting. Similar to balancing your checkbook, it’s helpful to take a look at your daily macros totals and balance them through the day. It’s helpful to be aware of some kind of structure throughout the day or a plan for your food, in order to create a higher level of food nutrient awareness. This awareness will help you to make informed decisions on your food choices for the long-term.

Episode 3 - Macro Myth Busters: Low Carb Diets
Here at Macro Hack Radio we LOVE carbs. Carbs are friends. Carbs are a necessity. With all of the ‘low carb’ fads that float around seemingly endlessly, we want to debunk the myth that you HAVE to eat low carbs, talk about why carbs are important, and present some situations in which low carbs may temporarily be beneficial but certainly not meant to be a sustainable way of eating.
