So you’ve worked out what MACROS actually are, and what each macronutrient does for your your body. Now, here is a break down of how to successfully follow the MACROS diet – without doing your head in.
First Things First: What Exactly Is The MACROS Diet?
Put simply, the MACROS diet is a macronutrient-controlled diet.
It works by tracking your macronutrient intake instead of your calorie intake, taking into account the different role each macronutrient plays. The point of this is to ensure you get the right protein:carb:fat ratio in order to reach your fitness goals
The MACROS diet is not a ‘one size fits all’ diet, but rather one that can be tailored to YOUR needs.
Your ideal macronutrient intake – or the amount of protein, carbs and fat you should be eating in relation to each other will vary depending on whether you want to:
- Tone up, lose weight or shred,
- Maintain peak fitness and enhance performance, or
- Gain muscle and max out your personal BEST.
How To Calculate Your MACROS
If you’re thinking, “How the $#@! am I meant to work this out?”, there are heaps of macro-controlled diet tracking apps if you do the research – along with online resources that will calculate what your daily protein, carb and fat intake should roughly look like.
