About Emily Field RD

Emily Field is a dietitian who teaches women to eat a balanced diet using a macros approach. This lets women break up with nonsense food rules and ditch depriving diets for good while still working towards their goals. 

First, Emily explains what macronutrients are and what role they have in your body. She explains how understanding macros helps you determine how much fat, protein, and carbohydrates you need to eat for your unique body every day.

Emily believes that when you’re focusing primarily on your macronutrients, you have more control over the food you’re eating. Eating to your macros means that pizza and chocolate are no longer off the menu, so long as they fit in your daily ranges. She says that this approach to flexible dieting actually gives you more food freedom than other forms of dieting.

Many of the women Emily works with fall into an ‘all-or-nothing’ approach when it comes to dieting. But she explains how you don’t have to be eating to your macros perfectly in order to make good progress towards your goals. In fact, Emily says that when you first start eating to your macros, you’re probably not going to hit them at all – and that’s actually not a problem.

Emily helps her clients understand how to set goals that aren’t dependent on the scale. Rather than only being about a number, success can be how you’re feeling, how your body moves, how your health conditions have improved, and how your body looks or fits into clothes.

And as great as macro-counting can be, there are some people who shouldn’t focus on a macronutrient approach to eating. Whether you are recovering from an eating disorder or you have an underlying health condition that needs more specific dietetic advice, this approach isn’t for everyone. But if you’re ready to dive right in, Emily has a free DIY Macro Guide you can read.

QUOTES

“My practice is built on the fact that I want to teach people the skill of tracking macros. It is a skill. It’s not a diet it’s not a program. It is a skill that you learn so that you can be in the power position to influence your body the way that you want.” (17:17)

“You will find out very quickly if you’re tracking macros that you cannot fit pizza and Pop-Tarts and ice cream and all this stuff into your diet 100% of the time, but the fact that you can make friends with those foods and work them in when you want to is really powerful for a lot of people.” (26:41)

“This is a tool to help you learn how much you need to eat to support your body, not a weight loss mechanism. If we can just shift that and move away from the end goal being the only reason you want to track macros, a lot of times that can remove the pressure that tracking macros is not going to work for you.” (30:15)
