Let's talk about Macros...what are they? how are they calculated? Why are they important?
If you have been researching the Keto diet you have probably come across the term "Marco" or "MACRONUTRIENT" Macros are a cornerstone of the Keto lifestyle.
There are sites that will help you figure out where your numbers should be. One of the sites that we use to help us establish our numbers is the "ruled.me keto-calculator". You can use it to enter your weight, height, activity level ect. and it will give you the numbers that you should target.
One tool that we have found useful is the free Atkins app that you can add to your phone it will help you track the needed information about the foods that you are eating.
Keeping up with your macros will help you to keep yourself on track and help you to identify any concern areas with your meal choices. Everyone's body reacts differently to certain foods. Tracking what you eat helps you to see what works and what doesn't work for your body. Use a Keto Calculator like we do and it makes it super easy to calculate and know that you are on the right track.
Macronutrient- a type of food such as fat, protein, or carbohydrates required in the human diet.
