Why Should I Be Counting Macros vs.  Counting Calories?

Because a calorie, isn’t just a calorie. Think about the difference 100 calories of chicken or avocado would have in your body versus 100 calories of a doughnut or chips.

Looking at the breakdown of your food can really help you achieve your weight loss, or training goals. There are three macronutrients. Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat.

There are several different formulas to use but basically if you are looking to lose weigh you want to consume approximately 40-50% Protein,  10-30% Carbohydrates and 30-40% fat.
