If you’re working with a qualified trainer, like those at Loyalty Fitness, adding food logging to your routine can be a game changer when it comes to losing weight and building muscle. Our trainers can even work with you to review your logs, provide insight, and let you know where you’re either falling short or can improve your intake.

Everybody is different and that means that everyone’s fitness and nutrition needs aren’t exactly the same. Fine-tuning a custom nutrition and workout plan with a personal fitness and nutrition coach can allow you to give your unique body exactly what it needs to be healthy and succeed!  Because each body is unique, the amount of calories and type of nutrition that each needs to perform optimally is different. Finding out what works best for your body, including calorie intake and output and how genetics play a role, is key into leading a healthy lifestyle. The caloric intake of an elite athlete differs drastically from a casual fitness enthusiast because the demand on their bodies is unique. By working with a nutrition specialist, you’ll be able to determine what works for you!

Macros are broken down into three groups: protein, fats, and carbs. Each of these is important to the proper function and output of your body’s systems. When you begin a training program, like super-slow strength training at Loyalty Fitness, you want to maximize your success through how you fuel your body. One easy way to do that is through balancing and monitoring the macros that you consume.
