Macros... what are they and why are they important

Updated: Oct 15, 2022

When it comes to diet, there is a lot of conflicting information and details to consider. When it comes to my coaching program, I like to focus on real food and follow the primal pyramid, however that isn't all that easy to follow... so, let me help you with your macro's and what will help with weight loss and/or maintenance.

Body composition is 80% diet, limit processed carbs, include sufficient protein and fat to fuel and rebuild your body.

Protein: Average .6-1.0 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass per day

Carbs: For weight-loss 50-100 grams for primal, paleo, low carb diet. KETO <50 grams, I typically recommend less than 30 grams to kickstart weight loss.

Fat: no limitation but, no requirement to "add" extra fat.. the foods we eat contain dietary fat
