You work your butt off in the gym and on the field, don't leave potential on the table with a poor diet! This is a monthly plan for those looking to take their fitness and performance to the next level, while ALSO improving their overall health! Perfect for those who need more structure, enjoy counting macros, and like to plan ahead.
We created a very seamless and simple system, so you can focus more on training vs. tracking. Our focus on accountability, education, and quality of food set us apart from the rest.
What is "More Than Macros"? I'm so glad you asked! This is not your typical "here are some numbers, good luck!" program, nor do we follow the outdated "if it fits your macros" mantra. That is like putting orange juice in your car and expecting it to run right. We provide detailed foods lists, several options for meal schedules with QUALITY food, and educational webinars to help you better understand how macros truly impact your daily life. You are more than just a number to us, so we give you MORE than macros in return! Plus, you have unlimited access to your coach! Try getting all of that from a big corporate company, we'll wait. But you will probably be waiting longer for their response :)
QUANTITY AND QUALITY Nutrition is the process of providing or obtaining the food necessary for health and growth. Therefore, we do NOT believe in "if it fits your macros." That concept does NOT support nutrition. It is lazy and flawed. You wouldn’t put orange juice in your car just because it fits in the tank an expect it to run right. We need to stop filling our macros with garbage and expecting to perform well or be healthy! “Why do I feel sluggish?” “Why can’t I get through this 8-minute workout without feeling like I am going to die?” Check your food. There's a reason you're hungry 10 minutes after eating cookies. Your body is telling you it's still HUNGRY for the real nutrients it's missing from the real food you SHOULD have given it. This industry puts far too much emphasis on numbers, and not nearly enough on education. We are told “calories are all that matters” because that's easy and requires no actual knowledge. Welp, I want my clients to actually learn and be able to do this on their own. I don’t expect you to be perfect, because #life, but I will teach you about quality foods that will fuel your workouts for efficiency and results.
ACCOUNTABILITY Templates don't explain the WHY. Apps & Ebooks can't respond to your unique questions. Calculators won’t help you while you're at the grocery store with a label question. And none of them can give you the 1 on 1 support and guidance you NEED when making a lifestyle change. Accountability is POWERFUL, and can make or break your success. Too often people are given random numbers to "hit," without any explanation or reasoning, and they are left on their own. That makes it too easy to slack off, make excuses, and give up. With us, you are never alone. No “once a week” contact limits, or extra charges for additional messages. That’s restrictive, impersonal, and saying you are not worth their time. This is how most companies run their mass-produced programs, even though they claim 1 on 1 coaching. I am a real person. I talk to my clients every day. I keep my client base small, to give you the individualized attention you need and deserve.
CUSTOMIZATION More Than Macros was developed to make the world of macro-nutrients more personal. This is not a generic "template" that anyone who weighs the same as you would get. We use 6 different data points specific to you to formulate multiple different meal timing schedules. You get an unlimited amount of changes/tweaks to your meal schedules as you change and progress. We constantly work together, changing things up when needed to ensure your success!

Reading food labels
Nutrition is not about shortcuts and numbers. It’s about... Quality food. Interpreting food labels. Feeling better, stronger. Lowering rates of disease. Managing stress. Avoiding plateaus. Getting through the day without coffee or naps. Your kids copying your healthy habits instead of learning poor ones. A better quality of life.
It’s about More Than Macros.
"I cannot express the hesitation before starting this program. I was so nervous I was going to fail but once the first week began and more nutritious food was introduced to my diet I didn’t have any cravings that I used to. For example, sweets and alcohol.. I felt more energized, stronger, less bloated and my mood also changed.. I felt 100% better than I did before starting. I was very impressed by simply eating more I would actually maintain my weight and gain muscles that I’ve been trying to gain for years! I felt so much stronger. I can’t get over how much stronger I felt and how happy I was...total mood changer." - Courtney
"My time with OPB Nutrition was nothing less than an awesome and valuable learning experience. As a former collegiate soccer player and current member of a fitness community, exercise and health has always been a part of my life. However, one of the areas of health that I could never seem to figure out was my nutrition. I had tried so many of the popular diets in the past and nothing ever seemed to stick. In more recent months, I truly believed that I had finally figured everything out and had a good grasp on my nutrition. Just a short few weeks with OPB nutrition helped me to see that this was actually not the case! A detail that I really appreciated from the OPB team was they provided a thoroughly spelled out plan. Macros has always been something that I was curious to try but never really able to wrap my head around. OPB laid everything out for me to follow in a user friendly format, and they answered every tedious question that I had. They also educated me on food labels and misinformation that pesky companies and marketers like to provide. Furthermore, this plan allowed me to dial in on the exact foods I was putting in my body and understand how these foods affected my body. Some of the cool perks resulting from me following OPB were higher energy levels, a few PR’s (yay), and some nice muscles:) OPB Nutrition educated me, guided me, and without a doubt helped me to figure out a nutrition plan that is best for taking my personal health and fitness goals to the next level. I definitely believe in this nutrition method and foresee it being sustainable base for me long term." - Angelica
