There is no denying that fad diets may work in the short run. They take out all the guesswork 🤔 and tell you what to eat. Unfortunately, that also means your options are limited; your workouts may suffer 🥵, and you might be deprived of certain food.
🙌The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way! 🙌 If you know the purpose of the food you eat and what they do to your body, your meals could become so much more flexible!
Today we’ll look at the purpose of your macros
Carbohydrates 🍞🍚🍌🌽 They’re THE energy source - whether they come from candy🍬 or sweet potatoes🍠. the biggest difference between 🍬 and 🍠 is how nutritious they are. (hint: 🍠 for the win) So, next time when you decide whether to have carbs, just think about whether you’ll need to physically move 🧗♀️🏃♂️ and/or use your smarts 🧠!
Proteins 🍗🥩🥚🍤 This macro is used for growth and repair. You need them to build and maintain the muscle you’ve worked so hard to earn! 🏋️♂️🏋️♀️
Fats 🥜🥥🥑 Your daily activities will determine how much energy you need from fats. The more intense your workout is, the more carbs you need as an energy source, not fat. 🤓 Why? 🤷♂️Because it’s just how your body function. 🤷♀️
There are other factors to consider when deciding what and how much to eat (no duh 🤯) but once you have the basics down, and go forward with a curious mind, you will eventually reach your destination!
