Take control of your nutrition by educating yourself, especially about macros.
Macronutrients are the most abundant sources of nutrition we get in our diet.
These three components make up the main parts of food that we can derive energy from.
Let’s break it down:
🥩Protein: arguably one of the most important macronutrients when planning your diet.
Proteins are made of amino acids. These are essential for building muscle, and muscle recovery.
Amino acids make up the enzymes and biomolecules that regulate metabolism and immunity.
Make sure you’re getting enough protein because it also help keeps you full!
🧈Fats: an important part of the energy equation and present in every cell in your body.
Your cells, immune system and some hormones all need fats for their production. Certain vitamins also require fats for your body to properly absorb them.
Fats are the most calorically dense macronutrient. That’s why your body stores fat for long-term energy.
It’s important to focus largely on healthy fats, as opposed to saturated and trans fats.
🍚Carbohydrates: these get a bad rep in modern diet culture, but they’re your body’s main source of energy.
Carbohydrates get broken down into glucose. This activates energy generation for your body.
Your brain takes up most of your glucose intake, so give it enough energy!
Get your carbs from whole grains and starchy vegetables.
