1) Saying "Ill eat X lbs of chicken, Y cups of rice and Z tbsp of evoo" everyday and once its gone thats what you ate

2) Saying youll eat a given # of meals at X/Y/Z p/c/f

3) Picking a # of p/c/f and counting down that way

4) Pre packing every meal and not having to think about it

fail to plan leads to failure....

easier to stick to macros when you arent faced with having to make a choice while starving. plus, it takes less time during the day. can pack day before and eat when ur hungry.

livestrong.com helps too for tracking with thedailyplate.

I have a set of macro restriction/goals and I'll just eat throughout my day and count until I reach those goals (usually just to hit my protein and stay under cals/carbs)..

I don't think it's a very good method. I think you should really plan it out and have a meal plan set. I never took the time to do it because it gave me some freedom with my diet but it actually backfired.
