What if I don’t work out with high intensity, or with weights, or ______is Eat To Perform still for me?

The concept of Total Daily Energy Expenditure applies to everyone, especially for people that are active.  The basic idea of metabolic flexibility (what we teach at Eat To Perform) is that you maintain and potentially build muscle tissue by always making sure you’re properly fueled while not in a fat loss cycleWe customize your macros to meet your individual needs, based off whatever activity you enjoy.

 

What if I eat keto only? What if I do the Zone diet? What if I don’t eat dairy?  What if I do ____?

Whatever diet you prefer we believe in eating adequate amounts to support  your athletic activities and lifestyle. What do we mean by that? We mean that we track Macronutrients – including fat, protein, and carbohydrates rather than calories. 

We also believe how you eat should be somewhat flexible, which counting macros allows for. Most of us eat a diet of primarily whole foods with eating for joy at certain moments.  If you want to call that Paleo, Zone, or whatever, that’s cool by us as long as you are eating appropriate amounts to fuel your workouts.

What is a Macronutrient?

Macronutrients are proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Second to getting your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE)/Eat To Perform numbers dialed in, eating the proper mix of these three macros will be the most important factor in losing fat while maintaining or improving your performance.

Carbohydrate: 4 calories per 1 gram of carbohydrate
Fat: 9 calories per 1 gram of fat
Protein:  4 calories per 1 gram of protein

Do I need a food logger?

Yes, you will need a food logger.  Most members use MyFitnessPal, which syncs with the Eat To Perform app.

The premium version is not necessary. You can easily log your food without the premium version of the food logger, and adjust accordingly. You will round your carbohydrate and protein targets to the nearest 10 grams.

For example, if your macro target reads 148g, set your target as 150g.  Since Fat has more calories per gram we like you to round fat to the closest 5g. For instance, if your macro target reads 47 g, set your target as 45g.

Do you create individualized meal plans for members?

We provide you with Free meal plan templates (choose from Vegetarian, Vegan, Whole Food and more). We also offer a customized meal plan for an additional fee (available when you sign up).

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to fitness and nutrition.  From different food preferences, to a variety of athletic intensity, to different goals, it is not possible to offer a realistic meal plan for each person without additional information.  We also offer an optional Meal Planning Guide to help you structure your own meal plans.

If I have a medical condition known as ______, is Eat To Perform right for me?

Eat To Perform does not offer medical advice of any sort.  Consult with a physician before beginning any diet or exercise program.

Is Eat To Perform for me if I am already “lean”?

That answer quite simply is a resounding yes.  It’s almost as if diet authors have forgotten that lean people need nutrition advice.  We actually have specific coaching just for lean people who want to continue to gain lean body mass and improve performance!

 

Is Eat To Perform for me if I have fat to lose?

Yes, however we are not a quick weight loss solution. We believe in strategic fat loss and performance cycles. Fat loss cycles for a focus on keeping muscle while losing fat; recomposition cycles (what we reference as Performance Recomp) for a focus on building muscle and increasing performance while also making sure metabolism is healed so that future fat loss cycles can be successful.   For most people quick-loss programs end up in an endless stream of rebounds and confusion.  We teach you the “WHY’s” of the foods you eat and help you find what works best for you.

 

Should I start in Fat Loss or Performance Recomp?

This depends on your goals, and how much weight you have to lose.  If you only have a few “stubborn” pounds that you are wishing to get rid of, then you will benefit more from Performance Recomp.

If you have more than 15+ pounds to lose, then Fat Loss is a safe bet.

Are there additional costs to Eat To Perform besides the membership?

Memberships include access to the members only Facebook groups and any current materials.  You are under no obligation to purchase additional products or services, although we do offer them (and we have really cute clothes). 

 

How long after I sign up does it take to get materials?

You will receive an order confirmation email after signing up, and a separate Welcome email with a list of everything you need to do to get started.

First, you need to set up and complete your profile in the Eat To Perform app. The more descriptive you are with your activity level, and goals, the better your coach can set you up for success with your plan. 

We try to get you set up with macros within a few hours during the week, and within 24 hours on weekends depending on timezone, and when you sign up.

You will also receive a few text messages to ensure that you are in the app, and set up for success. If you purchased a custom meal plan, you can expect to see that within 3-5 days of purchase.

If you have any trouble creating or accessing your account, please hit the support tab within the Eat To Perform app, and our team will help you out.
