WTF Is a Macro?

Ever wonder what a macro is?⁣

Let’s keep it simple.⁣

When we eat food, it has to be broken down before it can be used for energy.⁣

Carbs, fats, and proteins are the main (macro) nutrients we use for energy.⁣

rice – oats – breads – tortillas – cereal – fruit⁣
Whether you are attempting fat loss or muscle gain, carbs usually make up the highest percent of your calories.⁣

𝐅𝐀𝐓𝐒 𝟗 𝐂𝐀𝐋/𝐆𝐑𝐀𝐌⁣
avocado – nut butter – olive oil – eggs⁣
Fat is generally a lower percentage because it is more calorically dense than proteins and carbs.⁣

𝐏𝐑𝐎𝐓𝐄𝐈𝐍 𝟒 𝐂𝐀𝐋/𝐆𝐑𝐀𝐌⁣
chicken – fish – egg whites – protein powder⁣
During a diet, you’ll want to increase your protein intake to reduce muscle loss.⁣

Your body needs energy for exercise.

Your body needs the correct ratio of carbs, fats, and proteins to function at its best.⁣
