Now let’s talk macros real quick.

Your macros are your Carbs / Proteins / Fats.

You need all 3.  Here’s why:

CARBS fuel your muscle. They give you energy.

When you eat carbs, your body ‘stores’ them into your muscle and liver.

But if you eat too many, your body runs out of storage – and has to store them as fat instead.

Your best source of carbs is going to come from vegetables. It’s important that you eat vegetables as they are a great source of vitamins and minerals that will ensure your body functions the way it was designed.

PROTEINS help you ‘repair’ cells and create new ones.

This is how they ‘build’ muscle (after you ‘damage’ those muscles by lifting weight)

Best protein sources include real food such as chicken, lean beef, fish, turkey, etc.

FATS regulate your hormones, and allow your body to absorb a bunch of vitamins.

So doing any diet that cuts one of these out completely is usually not very sustainable.
