It was late 2013 and I’d just paid $30 USD to receive “personalised macros and a nutrition plan.” I had 20 percent body fat. The (very good) science that got those figures classed me as optimal body composition, athlete-status and with no changes recommended. I trained hard six days a week and paid a great deal of attention to my nutrition.
So, changes I sought.
Searching online, I contacted someone offering said macro plans, an area that I’d started learning more about. Someone, if I’m honest, I consulted on my own nutrition because of how they looked. And because I wanted to look like that.
