As an athlete, you need to build in rest periods in your week AND your year to reap the benefits of your training. Here’s why now might be a good time for that.
Last week we covered what to do if you are tracking macros and are coming up short (under-eating your macros). This week we tackle the opposite problem: what do you do if you are tracking your macros and are either going over them or are still feeling hungry?
The question of “how to navigate the day without blowing your macros” or “it’s 4pm and I’m almost out of macros, what do I do?” has been covered in lots of other articles (though I will probably give you my take on it another time). But to me, the more interesting question is what do you do if you are left with loads of macros at the end of your day?
