What is your feeling about macro counting and drinking too many carbs in smoothies?

I’ve been doing macro counting and have a nutrition coach. She advises not to juice or smoothies because you end up drinking a lot of your carbs for the day….What is your feeling about that?


I’m not sure what the background of your nutrition coach is, but carbohydrates are your main fuel source and they are perfectly legitimate and in fact very important macronutrients.

We don’t buy into food cults (invented by the processed food industry) that thinks that nutrition is explained by ratios or grams of protein, fats, and carbs. (It isn’t.)

The story is told in eating far more foods higher in fiber, and higher in micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes…..anti disease!). And guess what….the foods HIGHEST in all of those things? Are CARBOHYDRATES.

However, complex or unrefined carbs are the good ones, and we DO take you off all processed carbs (also processed fats and proteins, for that matter). Your body will thank you.

99 percent of dieticians, nutritionists, and health coaches just follow the fad of the day.

Currently that is an obsession with counting grams of stuff, and ratios of stuff……nature did not intend this.

You’re going to eat lots of carbs on this detox, but they are healthy, whole-foods, life-giving carbs.
