#71 Food logging, calorie counting & weight-loss with Sheradyn Dekker

This week on The Empowered Hormones Podcast, I chat about a frequently asked question… Why can’t I lose weight, and do I need to track my food intake if I want to lose weight? A loaded question, but I want to provide some education and awareness around food tracking so that you can decide if it’s a good fit for you or not…

In today’s episode, I discuss:


  • Do we need to track our food to lose weight?
  • What are macronutrients?
  • What are micronutrients?
  • Why are macronutrients essential?
  • What do macronutrients do in our bodies?
  • Do you have to care about micronutrients?
  • How to determine the total number of macronutrients you should eat.
  • An excellent macro calculator to find your macro split.
  • A macro “cheat sheet” and my handy tips!
