Customized Macronutrients (Calories) Calculation
The custom macro calculation is offered by Veeta to help those who would like to have their calories calculated. Do you want to lose weight? Gain muscle? Improve health? Boost performance? The calculator used was designed, developed, and tested in the Precision Nutrition research lab—and proven effective with thousands of clients—it’s the most comprehensive calorie, portion, and macro calculator available. This calculator is only available to graduates of the Precision Nutrition Course.
The Precision Nutrition Calculator first determines the appropriate daily calories for your body, based on the NIH Body Weight Planner (and adapted from research collected at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease).
This estimate takes into account:
- Your personal details (height, age, weight, sex)
- Physical activity levels (both daily movement and purposeful exercise)
- The date you want to reach your goal by (within reason!)
- The changing and adaptive nature of human metabolism (a major benefit of this calculator)
It then calculates your daily macros, combining the above data with additional factors, including your:
- Nutrition and fitness goals (weight loss, muscle gain, body recomposition, better health, peak performance)
- Dietary preference (Paleo, keto, vegetarian, fully plant-based, Mediterranean, and of course, “anything”)
- Macronutrient preference (balanced, low-fat, low-carb, or virtually any other macronutrient ratio you want)
But here’s the reason this calculator is truly revolutionary: Once it estimates your calorie and macronutrient needs, it automatically converts those numbers into food portions that are equivalent to parts of your hand. (Specifically, your palm, fist, cupped hand, and thumb.)
The result: If you choose, you can skip weighing and measuring your food—as well as logging the details of every meal into calorie and macro tracking apps. Instead, you can use our hand portion tracking system to achieve your calorie and macro targets.
This unique approach takes the hassle out of calorie and macro tracking, making it easier for you to lose weight, gain muscle, eat healthier, and improve your performance.
Once we calculate your macros, we’ll send you a free, personalized guide to using our hand portion system for hitting your calorie and macro targets. The entire PDF is 18 pages. There are a few samples in the pictures.
- This is NOT a meal plan service.
- There are NO workouts with this plan.
- This is a one-time payment, not recurring.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How will I give Veeta my information?
A: After payment, you’ll receive a link to a comprehensive questionnaire to fill out. You’ll include recent progress pictures so that Veeta can calculate your macros.
Q: When do I get my macros?
A: You will get a confirmation email, which lets you know the date you can expect to receive your macros. Veeta is located in Georgia, and macros will come to you on the confirmed date by the end of her workday, based on Eastern Standard Time. For those of you in other time-zones, this may not be your end of the day.
Q: How will Veeta communicate with me?
A: Your custom macros will arrive via email.
Q: Veeta didn’t give me precise calories with my macros - how do I know how many calories I should be eating per day?
A: If you are hitting your prescribed macros (i.e., 130 P, 250C, 65F), then you are hitting your prescribed target calories. Calories and macros are related.
Q: Sometimes, my macros and calories are not correct in my app! My macros are right, but the calories are way off - what do I do?!
A: Just concentrate on hitting your macros within +/- 5g each day. Sometimes calorie counts are wrong in various apps. Double-check with your food labels, the USDA website, or enter your regularly eaten foods yourself.
Q: I know how to count macros, but I'm not currently tracking them. How can I submit my form? Can I give you old numbers that I used to use?
A: There is no need to be trying to hit specific numbers.
Q: I've received my macros, but I need additional support and have some questions.
A: You can email Veeta at the email address below and request a phone consultation. All consultations are 10 minutes long and are an additional $25. Email: email@example.com
Q: Will Veeta give me a meal plan or tell me what to eat and how much daily?
A: The macro calculation is not a meal plan service, and Veeta will not suggest particular foods or meals that you should be eating daily. You are urged to find foods that you enjoy and fit them into your prescribed macro allotment accordingly.
Q: Can I get a refund?
*Please note that upon purchase, you will be sent a PDF with a link to a questionnaire that must be filled out for Veeta to compute your macros. Macros cannot be sent until the questionnaire is returned and complete. The one-time macro consult is not indicative of a coaching relationship with Veeta. You will be asked to provide current progress pictures to show Veeta where your physique is at currently. These pictures are entirely private and are for Veeta's eyes only. Customized macros are sent out five business days following the completion of payment and the questionnaire, excluding weekends and holidays. *
