WHAT ARE MACROS?
Carbohydrates are the body’s main source of fuel. When consumed, they are broken down into glucose and enter the bloodstream. When exercising, your body will first use the glucose in your blood stream.
Fat is used for energy after the body’s glycogen stores are depleted. Fat also helps the body absorb fat soluble vitamins, insulate and protect organs, produce new cells, and regulate many bodily functions.
Protein is responsible for maintaining, growing, and repairing muscle tissues and ligaments. Protein is only used for fuel when the body does not receive enough energy from carbohydrates and fat.
Fiber is found in carbohydrates. There are two kinds of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber is mainly found in starches. Insoluble fiber, mainly found in vegetables.
