Called macros for short (and no, we didn’t just make that up) are the most misunderstood and underutilize tool for fat loss! If you haven’t started focusing on macros to guide your nutrition, let me be the first to introduce you! Together, you and macros will make quite a fat burning power couple! But slow down, you can’t jump so quickly into your newfound relationship! You have to get to know each other a bit first!
SO LET US TELL YOU ABOUT OUR FRIENDS, THE MACROS.
Macros are nutrients that provide calories (aka energy) to our body. These nutrients are necessary for growth, metabolism, and all bodily functions (yes, all bodily functions). The prefix macro means “large” so macronutrients are needed in large quantities for our body to function properly. The flip side of macro is micro, and micronutrients include vitamins and minerals. These are still essential to our functioning, but we require much smaller quantities of these.
So macronutrients are needed for energy. Got it.
BUT WHAT ARE THEY REALLY?
