Body Composition – How lean or toned you look – is determined by your “Macronutrients”

What does this mean?

Basically, food is made up of 3 components. 

Protein. Carbs, and Fats. These are called Macronutrients, or referred to as “Macros”. 

Your caloric balance will determine if you lose weight or gain weight. 

Your macro nutrient balance will determine what is gained or lost – muscle/fat.

If your goal is to lose weight, what is better?

Losing 10lbs – where 5lbs is muscle and 5lbs is fat?

Or losing 4lbs? Where you lost 6lbs of fat and gained 2lbs of muscle?

Obviously the latter.

So here’s the deal…

If your MAIN goal is to lose fat:

Eat lots of protein (80-100% of your body weight in grams/day), medium fat, and cut your carbs to no more than 100g/day. 

If your MAIN goal is to gain muscle:

Eat lots of protein (80-100% of your body weight in grams) , medium fat, and 200-500g/carbs/day, with most of them coming after you work out.
