Episode – 041 The Down-Low on Macros & Oreos – Interview with Amber Brueseke

Amber Brueseke is a certified fitness trainer, registered nurse and mother of four. Through her “Biceps After Babies” courses, podcast and blog, she helps mothers get into their ideal shape. Her success with these clients owes largely to her focus on “macro training,” which does away the idea of “good” or “bad” foods, instead emphasizing key nutrients in balance with one another.

In this episode, Amber explains the theory and evidence behind macro training, breaks down the wide variety of material available to people who browse her website, and reveals who’s the first musician she saw perform live.

The Finer Details of This Episode:

– What exactly is macro training and what drew Amber to it.

– How nutrition was the last piece missing from Amber’s fitness plan.

– The three main macronutrients in our body and why we need to keep them in equilibrium.

– Debunking the notion of “good” or “bad” food in favor of hitting the important numbers.

– How Amber coaches her macro clients and tailors her teaching their goals.

– The first steps you should take when visiting Biceps After Babies.


“I started counting macros and BOOM, eight weeks later I had abs for the first time.”

“We’re making sure that the foods that you’re eating are balanced and are hitting all the points that you need to hit in order to fuel your body in the best way possible for it to perform.”

“I’m big about moderation in all things, and macro counting gives you the structure to actually execute on that moderation.”
