What is Equalution?
Equalution is 'practical, flexible dieting', that focuses on a balanced macronutrient and micronutrient intake. The science-based eating plan aims to produce results, but also allows you to enjoy the foods you love, AND maintain your 'eating out' social life. And when you're not skipping your daily coffee, taco Tuesday, pizza Fridays and more, it's the kind of eating plan that's actually sustainable. You'll still find plenty of vegetables and protein on this eating plan, but burgers and ice cream do appear on the menu. There's no need for 'cheat' meals when you're eating food you like every day, and that's what Equalation is trying to achieve.
👉🏼WHAT FLEXIBLE DIETING REALLY IS & WHAT IT IS NOT🍎 🍦 Flexible dieting isn’t all pop tarts and icecream, in its best practice flexible dieting is a balance of 80% nutrient dense food and 20% food for the soul. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ The simple science: Quite simply if you want to: 🔘LOSE weight you need to be in a calorie deficit (eating less then you're expending energy wise). If you want to 🔘GAIN weight then you need to be in a calorie surplus (eating more than you're expending energy wise). If you want to 🔘MAINTAIN your weight then you need to be consuming the same energy (calories) as your Total Daily Energy Expenditure - which is what you burn on a daily basis inclusive of your activity. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Why macros 🍗 🧀 🍞 are important when flexible dieting: Your macronutrient intake - so your protein, fats and carbs, is as important as caloric consumption given the role that macros play in your body composition (ideally when losing fat you want to be retaining muscle while dropping body fat) and overall health. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Why micronutrients are important: Micronutrients support the body’s many physiological functions. A lot of stereotypical ‘junk food’ lacks in these micronutrients and the deficiency in these requirements is why many Flexible Dieters can’t get away with meeting their intake requirements through junk and treat foods alone. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Benefits of flexible dieting: ✅RESULTS: Hitting YOUR intake requirements (if your goal intake is set right) achieving results. ✅EATING TO PREFERENCE: Enjoying foods of your choice! ✅EAT WHEN YOU WANT: Meal timing does not effect results! ✅DINING OUT: Flexible dieting gives tools to make allowances & guesstimate so dining out is possible while dieting! ✅MANAGE EATING DISORDERS: Flexible dieting allows you to build a better relationship with food through minimising restrictions and therefore managing binge eating, blow outs & food avoidance.

How does a macro diet work?
A 'macro diet' is when you count how many macronutrients you should be consuming per day in order to reach your health goal. "There are three macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein and fat", says Spoon Guru nutritionist Amine Ould-Laib. "Carbohydrates are broken down to provide energy in the form of glucose, which is carried via the blood to various organs to carry out its daily functions. Protein provides the amino acid building blocks for the growth and repair of tissues like muscle, skin and connective tissue. And fats provide the energy in the form of triglycerides, and are essential for insulation of nerves and vital organs." This macro-conscious diet works because rather than just counting calories (which could come from any type of food), it's ensuring your body has an even spread of the food groups it needs to produce optimal results.
"Micronutrients are also essential, but these help the body to use the macronutrients", explains Amine. "For example, B vitamins help the body produce and utilise the energy from carbohydrates. And trace elements like iron are required for haemoglobin production, so the blood can transport nutrients to their required location."
