What Are Macros??

Macronutrients are large (macro) amounts of nutrients that the body needs to function at a healthy level. Macros are protein, carbohydrates, and fats. Macronutrients are needed to provide your body with energy measured in the form of calories.  We all need energy.  We all need to eat.  But how do we eat enough?  Not too much?  What even is enough or too much? What ratios are best for fat loss? How do I even figure this out for my personal goals? Here’s a general breakdown of my suggestions.  Keep in mind variations will occur based on body type, goals, and medical history as well as food sensitivities.
