Hi hi and welcome to Vegan Macros 101! My name is Vicki and I'm the founder of Vegan Macros 101 programs and guides.
I started my fitness journey in 2015. A year into this, I decided to go fully vegan from vegetarian.
I realised that nutrition was key to reaching my fitness goals, but, with so much conflicting information out there, I struggled to find the right path for me. I was getting so frustrated, working really hard in the gym, but my body composition didn't reflect this! I knew I wanted to get leaner and lose body fat, but I didn't know what to do.
So, I started to look into things. Should I eat whole-foods only? No oil? What about high-fat/low-carb? Or low-carb/high fat maybe? Or should I try intermittent fasting? How much protein do I actually need?
Arrghh! I spent a fortune on plans and courses from online trainers, but I found that they hadn't been in my position, so weren't giving me the right advice. These plans were from either really ripped guys who were young and already full of muscle, or from women who'd grown up athletic and had never been overweight like I was. Add to that all the confusion around plant-based nutrition, and it was years wasted of trial and error finding the right information.
I couldn't afford a 1:1 coach to tell me what to eat, and all the done-for-you meal plans I came across didn't give me any of the explanations I needed to figure things out. They were more of an 'eat this, follow that' kind of approach, and a 96 page PDF of text that was hard to read. So, after 5-years of scouring all the information surrounding fitness and nutrition and with a Vegan Nutritionist Certification now under my belt, I would love nothing more than to help you on your own journey to taking control of your nutrition and fueling your fitness goals.
That's why I created these courses. Each one has easy to follow videos, breaking down everything you need to know to finally design your own plans and be in charge of your own nutrition. But, I wanted to give you more than that. I know you might have questions, and because support is one of the most important things in any transformational journey, anyone who buys the course will get access to the private Facebook group where you can ask questions and share your wins!
I genuinely can not wait to see you crush your goals! See you on the inside!
