If the idea of cutting out food groups, banishing carbs, and avoiding chocolate sounds like a nightmare, we’re 100% with you. However, if you’re looking to tone up, or kick a few kilos, a macro nutrition plan could be the perfect solution. It focuses on finding the right balance of proteins, carbs, and fats for your body. Wedding Affair brings to you everything you need to know about Macro Diet.
What is a Macro Diet?
A macro diet is a diet that focuses on getting the right macronutrients for your body. This means everyone’s macro plan is different. Dependant on the indicidual’s personal goal, each individual will require a different number of macros. Only once your diet is catered to your body’s needs, will you reach your body and fitness goals.
What Are Macronutrients?
Macronutrients or “macros” are the four types of food molecules that the body can use for energy. Eden explains macronutrients include fats, which have nine calories per gram, carbs, which have four calories per gram, and proteins, which also have four calories per gram. The fourth is alcohol, containing 7 calories per gram. And while it’s not recommended with most nutrition plans, you can factor it into your daily macro count.
Are There Any Foods You Need To Avoid?
The beauty of macros is there are no foods you need to avoid. As long as at the end of the day, the calorie intake fits within the right profile of macros, you can eat it. For example, if you’ve had protein all day, and you have 300 calories left within your diet, there’s nothing to say you can’t treat yourself to a chocolate bar or an ice cream as long as it fits within your program. But this doesn’t mean you eat ice cream all day. Balance is the key.
