Macronutrients reflect the 3 groups that we can place food into. Note, this does not tell us whether the food is healthy or not. Example, both a lollipop and carrot can be considered a carbohydrate. The first point of call is always to source natural and nutrient dense food before making a fuss about macros.
Carbohydrates - Fuel
Too Much - Rollercoaster blood sugar levels, bloating or excessive farting and gain body fat.
Too Little - Low energy, digestive blockage.
Ideal - Consistent energy levels, regular stool cycle, not dependent on 'sugar hits'. Avoid refined options.
Protein - Structure & metabolism
Too much - Digestive blockage and weight gain.
Too little - Higher risk of stress, injury and breakdown and muscle loss.
Ideal - Balanced satiety (not hungry / full) and lean muscle mass. Pursue quality free range sources.
Fat - Fuel and nutrient (fat soluble) absorption
Too much - Weight gain.
Too little - Feeling hungry, cognitive degeneration and low HDL cholesterol.
Ideal - Consistent mental clarity and energy levels, able to go 5 hours without feeling hungry, naturally sourced options.
