🗣LET’S TALK MACROS🗣

Here I have my macro breakdown—Protein, Carbs and fats. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each of the three major macronutrients has important and distinct roles in the body when it comes to weight management, hormonal balance, immunity, development and so on.🤗
🥩Protein: The building blocks of the body. We can all agree that protein has tons of benefits - nine amino acids essential for health, maintain muscle mass, providing energy for our cells and brain, helping store away energy for later use in fat stores, making your heart beat, and helping build the foundation of vital organs, including your heart, lungs and even your DNA, and supporting growth/development.
🍉Carbohydrates: The carbs are the body’s preferred #1 energy source.. Carbohydrate foods are digested at different speeds depending on how much fiber, protein and fat they have. Refined and processed carbs release glucose (sugar) into the bloodstream more quickly, leading to symptoms like low energy levels, cravings, overeating, weight gain and brain fog. Eating lots of processed/fast carbs can also increase risk for insulin resistance and diabetes, so you gotta be careful!
🥑Fats: In your diet have the roles of protecting your vital organs, regulating hormone production (including of reproductive hormones like estrogen and testosterone), helping regulate your body temperature, allowing for proper absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, providing your brain with fuel, protecting you from depression and anxiety, and many more.
To reiterate, all three macronutrients are important for survival, not to mention for optimal health, longevity, happiness and feeling your best.
Macronutrients are compounds found in all foods that humans consume in the largest quantities, providing the bulk of our calories (energy) from our diets.💡 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
