Macronutrients are what make up the calorie content of food.
Sometimes referred to as “macros,” the three main categories of macronutrients are:
The calorific combination of the macros are what make up your dietary intake.
I will personally be setting and changing your calorie intake throughout the program in combination with the nutritional phases.
Here’s the breakdown of how many calories you’ll find in each macro nutrient:
- 1 gram of protein = 4 calories
- 1 gram of fat = 9 calories
- 1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories
I’ve created a list of recommended food choices you can use to help build your own preferred dietary plans.
These are only recommendations, you are free to choose other foods you desire, but these may not have the nutritional benefit of those listed.
