What are Macronutrients?

Macronutrients
Macronutrients consist of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Contrary to common concept, each one is a necessary part of a healthy and successful diet regardless of your purposes. Some popular diets promote cutting either fats or carbohydrates out of one’s diet. At best, this only benefits you in the short term, since these diets are nearly impossible to follow permanently.

Each macronutrient plays a vital role in our health and well-being, and excluding any one of them will cause you to feel unfulfilled and tired. Whether we are trying to shed body fat and gain lean muscle mass or just trying to bulk up, our purposes are best met by eating a fair share of each of the macronutrients. Daily, we should aim to consume 1 - 1.5 grams of protein per pound of ideal bodyweight, with the rest of our calories coming from an even divide of good carbs and fats.
