It’s time to forget counting the calories and start measuring your macros.
It seems the world has gone a bit nuts for macros, but it still has many like a rabbit in headlights, with the constant calculations and meanings, but turns out it isn’t all that scary.
Macros are your proteins, carbs and fats. Your body works at its best when your macros are on point, this means you’re eating the correct amount of macros. So a day full of honey popcorn probably isn’t best, even if it homemade. Damn.
The exact number of macros you need all depends on your height, weight, amount of physical activity and whether you’re looking to loose, maintain or gain weight.
When it comes to nutrition food prep is key and if that’s not hard enough, trying to weigh out macros appears to just add extra stress and hassle. Working out how many grams of protein and whether this breast of chicken takes me up to that amount I need for that day is definitely something I had to get used to.
HOWEVER, for those you of who fancy working out your macros and fancy joining the macro hype you can do and so easily by purchasing the macro food recipe book.
