    I am looking at starting the 15 day challenge but I am allergic to dairy. What are the best options to use in place of dairy in the meal plans so that I stay on track? Thank you!!

    I know it don’t eat right — I usually don’t eat breakfast or lunch. If I do eat lunch I am usually not hungry at night. I e done this for so long that between that eating style and age (51) I’m sure my metabolism is so messed up. I’m not skinny or obese– just average but would like to lose 15 pounds. I have started adding yogurts And granola to breakfast and usually have the same for lunch. For supper I do meat (c, b, or p) sweet potatoes and green beans. Ive looked at your recipes but I’m a picky eater and I dont like to cook so most I’m not interested in trying. I’ve started exercising using your 15 day challenge. Any helpful words of wisdom.?

      Nutrition really is one of the most important aspects of reaching your goals! If you don’t love meal plans, I recommend counting your macros. That way you can make your own food that fits into your day so that you can reach your weight loss goals!

    This all seems interesting and exiting to learn and do. I just don’t know what I should set my macros to to get started? My goal is to lose 10 more lbs (these last 10 have been so hard to drop) and tone my lower body, I have alot of fat and cellulite around my butt/thighs. I already drink the protein, and the bcaas, and eat eat 5 small meals a day. Can someone help me with this?

    I’m always confused at to which macro break down I should follow. My goal is to lose cellulite and tone my legs. Should my goal be to build muscle or to lose fat?

    I am confused how to calculate the amount of macros needed to reach your goals and where exactly to find the macro ratios on nutrition labels.

    1. Kirsten Jackson

      What are your goals? I’ll help you figure it out 🙂

      A macro (or macronutrient) refers to fat, carbs, and protein. So when you’re looking at a nutrition label look for those 3 things. It will tell you how many grams of each are in the food that you’re eating. From there you can do the math an figure out what fits into your goals. Macro dieting is like you have an allowance for each macro. You get X amount of carbs, fat, and protein. You can “spend” those on your food through out the day. So you’ll need to figure out your ratios first, then decide how many grams of each you need every day and then figure out which foods will help you meet that goal.
