Macros Master Class
Macros Master Class
The #1 Online Course to help health coaches and individuals created science-based nutrition strategies. Developed by Christine Hronec.
Google "macros" and you will find countless pages filled with generic cookie cutter advice. In order to make sense of macros in real life, they need to be applied to the specific needs of the individual.
In this course, you will learn what macros are, how to calculate them for a wide range of nutritional needs and most importantly, how to practically apply this information for yourself or your clients.
You must pass the oral exam and you will receive certification of completion.
Let me break down the Curriculum...
MODULE 01 | What are Macros?
Experience an in-depth tutorial on what macronutrients actually are and why they are so important on a chemical and biological level. We cover real food macros with food comparisons, our macros matrix, and the most in-depth breakdown of each macronutrient. Learn the functions of proteins, carbs, and fats in the body, as a chemical and as a real whole food. Last, but not least this tutorial covers the guidelines for how much of each macronutrient you need and the logic behind it with clear cut ranges for each macronutrient. These foundational tools will be used in later modules for more advanced application of the macros as it relates to your health goals.
Includes: 35 pages PDF file presentation and a YouTube link to Module 01.
MODULE 02 | How to Calculate Macros
Gain solid understanding of how to calculate macros using Christine’s 10-step macronutrient calculation roadmap. This tutorial provides the step-by-step logic for how to determine macros and includes the logic and explanations behind the most common sources of confusion such as: which BMR equation is the most accurate, how do activity factors translate to real life situations, and how to determine what macronutrient approach is most effective for the individual's needs (i.e., bodybuilder approach, high fat low carb, keto, PCOS, menopause, and a variety of hybrid approaches). The macronutrient strategies demonstrated in this module have been successfully implemented on over 40,000 clients.
Includes: 40 pages PDF file presentation and (2) YouTube links to Module 02. (Part 0ne and part two.)
MODULE 03 | Macros for Fat Loss
Fat loss-oriented goals tend to be the primary motivation for tracking macros. The concept of a caloric deficit is well ingrained in society as the go to approach for losing weight. The problem is that eating “less” doesn’t necessarily result in the physical changes one was hoping to achieve. This is due to the common misconception that weight loss and fat loss yield the same result. This module goes through the macro calculations for a wide range of scenarios ranging from athletes to sedentary individuals as well as women and men of varied ages to demonstrate what macros nutrients actually look like in real life. This tutorial also includes added discussion on how and why the final macros were determined as well as special considerations for how these would be adjusted based on personalized factors for the individual.

MODULE 04 | Macros for Maintenance
Maintenance is by far the most underestimated nutrition challenges for both coaches and individuals. Anyone can experience success with fat loss and rebound, but to sustain that goal and actually live in that physique for the rest of your life is quite another accomplishment. This module covers not only how to determine maintenance macros, but it also covers how to effectively transition out of fat loss via reverse dieting approaches. Several practical scenarios are covered in this tutorial of real people and circumstances showcasing their fat loss macros and the methodology for how to experience higher caloric intake without gaining body fat during the process. Mastering this advanced nutrition technique results in a better quality of life that is sustainable for the long run as well as supporting safe and effective transitions out of the fitness competitor lifestyle.

MODULE 05 | Macros for Gains
When it comes to gaining muscle, most take the eat whatever approach as opposed to carefully calculating portions and macro ratios to properly maximize muscle gain while minimizing fat gain. This module covers lean bulking for those who want to gain lean muscle mass as strategies for those who are naturally lean and struggle to add size regardless of what they do. This module also covers strategies to support healthy weight gain and goes over a variety of real-life scenarios of women and men seeking to gain weight and their detailed macronutrient calculations with step-by-step explanations for each element of the calculations. This provides real life macros and examples that have been successfully implemented with real clients.

MODULE 06 | Macros Adjustments
Macros are not a static set of numbers that you get from a nutritionist once and are set for life. This module covers the key variables that require a macronutrient adjustment such as a plateau, pregnancy, breastfeeding, changes in activity, changes in the progress rate, as well as when one reaches their goal. When these common needs arise it's not just a matter of making a change to one's caloric intake, the macros and resulting macro ratios need to change for specific reasons. This module goes over specific examples for each scenario with detailed explanations for how to tweak and re-run the numbers and what the resulting changes will practically look like.
