Clarice Yeo, an university student, shares how and why she counts her macros to stay slim and fit.
Height: 1.60m Weight: 50kg
Exercise regimen: I go to the gym six times a week and work on a specific muscle group each day. These muscle groups are my back, arms and shoulders, and legs. I try to hit each one twice a week. I also do cardio workouts, like on the treadmill, twice or thrice a week.
Diet: I track my macronutrients daily. Macronutrients are the nutrients that provide the body with calories. My food is steamed – 80-90 per cent is home-cooked – and I don’t use salt or oil . The other 15 per cent or so of the food will be snacks that fit into my macronutrient diet. I have a food scale at home which I use to weigh the portions of each meal. I have a weakness for desserts but I eat them only occasionally.
