This is from my Instagram today.
Look at this picture…
This perfectly summarizes my point: Using volume measurements like tablespoons, scoops (for whey), cups, and so on…are all terribly inaccurate.
The real amounts will vary every time, and sometimes by a lot more than you think.
In this example, a heaped tablespoon may look about the same each time to the naked eye, but you could be overconsuming by 120 Calories.
Now multiply it out over several meals per day. Then per week. Then over a month. Your calories and macros will be way off!
So I plead with you, my dear American followers…buy a set of kitchen scales. Weigh your food out and have the certainty that you have your diet dialed in correctly!
These electronic kitchen scales I found on Amazon are very similar to the ones I use. Make the investment. You won’t regret it.
I honestly don’t know how anyone can do a successful cutting cycle when using volume measurements. I think you’ll be shocked at how far you’ve been off if you don’t currently use accurate weight measurements.
NOTE: By the way, I have a free MuscleHack calculator that will automatically calculate your daily protein & calorie requirements. You can use it and even download it if you prefer. If you would like access to it, just type in your email below.
You don’t have to go to your email to click a confirm link; the info you need will appear immediately after you enter your email. Enjoy the calculator…
Anyway, that’s my minor rant over. Grrrrr.
