What are 'macros' anyway?
I’m asked all the time…”What are macros”? Macros (short for macronutrients) are what make up the calories in food. Every calorie is either a protein, carbohydrate, or fat.
Instead of the traditional method of counting calories, which can be frustrating, and may not lead to a well-rounded diet, you are given a number of grams for each of the three macros. By eating your allotted grams of each macro, it ensures that you are maintaining eating a healthy, well-balanced diet.
No foods are off limits, and most importantly, this is not a diet! There are no special shakes, secret drinks, or specific exercise programs. You will eat real, healthy food that’s available at your local grocery store.

What are the benefits of keeping a food diary?
Research has confirmed the benefits of keeping track of the food you eat and the activity you do. It's simple - the more consistently you track your food intake, the more likely you are to reach your goals. Part of the White Lotus Nutrition Plan involves keeping a food diary.
Here's why...keeping a food diary can help you:
Increase your weight loss - if your goal includes losing weight, Keeping a food diary can double a person’s weight loss, according to a
study from Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research. Keeping a food diary can help reveal the unhealthy habits that are stopping you from losing weight.
Find out how your body responds to food - Everyone's body responds differently to certain foods. You can use your food diary to help you figure out which foods fuel your life the best. Which foods energize your workouts? make you feel bloated? help you fight hunger? and so on...
Improve accountability - Keeping a food diary is also an excellent way to manage the portions of your food, increase your body's performance, and improve your overall nutrition. When you check-in with your coach, she will examine your food diary from the previous week and suggest ways to shift your eating habits to make the most of the food you eat.

What sets White Lotus Nutrition apart from other diets?
For starters, working with White Lotus Nutrition is not a "diet"!
In the the traditional sense, "diets" are when someone restricts themselves to small amounts or special kinds of food in order to lose weight. They tend to be short term, may provide fast results, and likely are not sustainable (people usually gain the weight back relatively quickly). Many of our clients have tried every "diet" under the sun including: Ketogenic, Paleo, Whole30, Dash, etc.
What makes White Lotus Nutrition different is:
Your macros are individually programmed for you. I take into account your work, exercise, age and personal goals.
Our coaching services are not meant to last forever. Our goal is to teach you healthy, mindful eating that is sustainable, so that you leave our program with all of the tools to maintain your health for the rest of your life.
Access to your coach and our community for support, questions, and ides for how to reach your goals.
You do not have to be hungry to lose weight. Losing weight is a balance between your food and keeping your metabolism fired up. Your coach will continue to fine tune your nutrition with you in order to fit your food to your life.
Accountability to yourself, your coach, and our community.
