What are Macros?

Macros is a term used in place of Macronutrients. Macronutrients are the major nutrients that are found in the food we eat each and every day! The three main macronutrients are Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat.

What does it mean to count or track macros?

Macro counting is very specific tracking of your 3 main Macronutrients (Protein, Carbs, Fat). Instead of counting just calories, you track these three nutrients, making sure you have the right balance for your body and goals. Each person has a unique set of macronutrients that will work for them, so proper calculation is key. By having the right balance for your goals, you are able to increase your energy level, drop weight while maintaining muscle and also gain muscle. It’s a healthy, balanced way of eating for a lifetime. Macro counting takes away the guessing game or food guilt…you eat the amount you’re supposed to eat and you get to have the flexibility of choosing what foods your macros come from.

There are many different names people use to describe counting or tracking Macros. This way of eating is also called “Flexible Dieting” or “IIFYM”, meaning (If It Fits Your Macros). This way of eating is meant to have the flexibility to eat the things you love, just in the right proportions for your goals.
