Meet Alex Marshall
Alex works with people wanting to improve their relationship with food, are tired of the endless yo-yo cycle, and are ready to eat MORE food so they can get strong and be their healthiest selves! She takes a holistic approach and look at clients’ lifestyle, hormone and gut health, body image, mindset, sleep, etc. Alex uses our Cronometer Pro product and has all of her clients track their nutrition using Cronometer.
Tell us about your approach to food.
What is your favourite Cronometer feature?
The feature I use the most is the Nutrition Report. I loooove being able to mark days as complete/incomplete and then either include or exclude those days from running an average. Being able to choose custom date ranges for averages, the top sources showing when hovering over totals, and the ability to include/exclude supplements in the average are all super helpful, as well!
The other feature that I really like is the ability to hide all calorie information. This can be SO beneficial for some clients!
What do you like most about using Cronometer & Cronometer Pro with your clients?
I have had so many clients switch to Cronometer from other popular macro tracking apps, and they never look back! The different charts and graphs are also so helpful to see trends and adherence/consistency.
Any health tips & tricks you'd like to share?
Once you work on fueling yourself and your activity levels appropriately (read: typically over 2,000 calories for most active individuals), most of those cravings tend to disappear.
For menstruating individuals, they often get frustrated (or even mocked) for craving chocolate before their menstrual cycle starts. What’s really going on, is that the uterine lining requires a good amount of calories AND magnesium and zinc to build and shed – and it just so happens that dark chocolate is a great source of all 3! So go ahead and eat the chocolate!
