What are examples of macros food?
When someone refers to “macros foods” or “macros snacks,” they’re simply referring to foods that fit into their daily macronutrient needs! Here is our FREE Macro Cheat Sheet you can download or print to take the guess work out!
The three main macronutrients are: carbs, fats, and protein.
Carbs are found in many foods, but are higher in foods like breads, pastas, and starchy vegetables (like potatoes.)
Fat is found primarily in animal products, especially dairy, as well as nuts.
And protein is found in a TON of different sources. — We have an entire list of protein sources here, and it includes options for any diet!
What is the best macro split for fat loss?
Typically, a great macro percentage for weight loss is as follows:
35% protein, 35% carbs, and 30% fat.
This ensures that you’re getting the protein you need to build muscle (which also helps to burn fat), as well as the carbs necessary to fuel your workouts.
Will I still lose weight if I go over my macros?
Unless you’ve burned more calories than you’ve taken in, you will not lose body fat. Fat loss is all about calories in vs. calories out. Therefore, if you go over your daily calorie count, but are exercising the same amount, you will not lose body fat.
