The purpose of “Pick a Team” is make eating easy again. In stabilization, we aren’t focused on “calories” because, frankly, the body after weight loss is in a stage of conservation (to protect against further weight loss). Trying to calculate one’s “exact” daily needs is near impossible. By focusing on just 3 macronutrients (which one’s daily servings are individually gauged based a BMR algorithm and computed through our macro calculator on the platform), our clients can focus on how they feel following a meal, rather than focusing on all the “math” and accounting that follows. The ultimate goal with “Pick a Team” is for our clients to realize just how simple eating can be before reintegrating food that is high in ALL macronutrients.
