What are Macros?
Our bodies are pretty complicated, meaning that they have a lot of nutritional needs in order to survive and function. The composition of our diet is essential to meeting these needs and therefore it’s important to understand the different types of macronutrients (a.k.a. “macros”).
Macronutrients are proteins, carbs, and fats. Almost every food we eat is made up of these components. We need all three in our diet, but we sometimes run into trouble when our macros are not properly proportioned.
Each of our bodies are different, meaning we each have a specific balance of proteins, carbs and fats that are perfect for us. This also depends on our specific goals. If you want to lose weight, you may have heard cutting carbs can help. But the truth is, you could be hurting more than helping by having an unhealthy macro balance.
Confused yet? This is just the tip of the iceberg. But the good news is, this is where I can help.
