Before we get into the list…
What are macros???
Macronutrients provide energy in the form of calories and make up the three major parts of food – carbohydrates, fat and protein.
Paying attention to your Macros is a step further into Counting Calories.
This is good to know when looking at nutritional labels of food and drinks. The breakdown is there and you can know how many calories are coming from each.
What foods fit into each MACRO?
I made this macros cheat sheet for you to save and know what category a lot of different foods fall in to.
Some are carbs. Some fat. Some are a mix of protein and carbs. Some have a good percentage of all 3.
Check it out!
I think that’s a pretty solid list of foods.
I believe we should be eating a pretty solid balance of each macronutrient. I’m aiming to hit 34% Carbs, 33% Protein, 33% Fat when tracking and logging my food.
A healthy diet should have a mix of all macros.
