What are they? Three building blocks of your foods, proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and a 4th “water”…
What they do? Macro’s help us grow, repair, and give us energy.
Each macro has its own specific role and function in the body.
Carbs: Required highly for brain and day to day function. Think immediate energy and blood sugar needs. Walking, talking and basic immediate functions.
Fats are key for brain development and making hormones.
Fats: Highest calorie count per gram… requiring more energy to burn…. At the same time are helpful for increasing feelings of “satiation”.
Fats: Help to balance and stabilize energy / blood sugar levels.
Proteins: provide amino acids which are the building blocks of cells and cellular repair operations.
Water: Considered a “macro” because we consume it in large amounts and is essential to life. 80% of our bodies are water….
Micro Nutrients: These are vitamins and minerals required in smaller amounts for our diets.
Application - use MFP my fitness pal and Training peaks.

That said, every so often 'life happens' and some course-correction is inevitable - that's where the TriStar coaching approach, backed by science and experience, is guaranteed to make a difference." —Coach Attila Kelemen
