Tracking Macros


What is Tracking Macros?

Tracking Macros is eating a specific amount of Protein, Carbs and Fats. Typically this is measured in a number of grams to eat of each per day. Targeting the right range of protein to eat will help with retaining muscle during weight loss.  Even though you are tracking grams of each macro nutrient consumed, this is indirectly counting calories, since each macro nutrient contains a specific number of calories. Protein = 4 calories per gram, Carbs = 4 calories per gram, Fats = 9 calories per gram.   Tracking Macros works by limiting the amount of calories eaten.   Weighing  food on a kitchen scale will be the most accurate way to track how much you eat of all of the strategies.  This tool is a good one to use with other strategies when you feel like you are not making progress.
