There are a lot of reasons why I’m making this a lifetime deal, but the two that stick out the most are cost and user feedback.
Let me begin with user feedback first.
There have been many reiterations of this spreadsheet throughout the years, each one being an upgrade from the one prior. Each time I’ve made adjustments to it, it’s been because of a client recommendation. Some of them used the calculator themselves, while others had me calculate for them because admittedly, the past versions weren’t very user friendly.
Without a doubt, each client that uses or comes in contact with this calculator makes suggestions to make it easier to use. This means a more effective end product resulting in quicker results.
It’s hard enough changing the way you eat and making sure to get in effective workouts, who wants to complicate things by trying to learn one more thing?
Over the last year, the biggest suggestion I had is to make short video clips on how to get the most from using the calculator. This includes instructions on how to use it, how to tweak calories and macro’s, explanations of why adjustments might be necessary, as well as short nutrition tips
User feedback is important to me and by making this a lifetime deal, I hope to continue to receiving feedback with each update and addition.
Now, about the cost.
I’m not sure where to start with this, over the last couple of years, calorie and macronutrient calculators have popped up at a rapid speed.
However, the difference between what I’m offering and what they are offering is price.
You see, almost all of the calculators that are out there right now are apps that require a monthly fee. Some of them are quite expensive to the tone of $20/month. Over the course of the year, that’s about $240. Can you imagine what you could do with that money?
Let me be honest here, some of those apps are really good. The only thing they have over what I’m offering is aesthetics (their end product is really shiny and well polished), but it offers the same information as what you would get from my product without the recurring fees.
Tools like this shouldn’t be expensive, and honestly, why should they be?
Lastly, I have to point out that this product does not constitute as coaching or medical advice, but only provides information to help you implement into your current health and fitness journey. This also doesn’t supersede medical treatment either, you should first and foremost seek medical clearance when you’re beginning a new exercise and nutrition regiment.
