What are macros and how do I track them?Updated 19 days ago

Macros, or macronutrients, consist of protein, carbohydrate and fat. These are the essential macronutrients required to control your body composition, body fat and ultimately your results. Your macros are calculated based on your measurements, but also your physical activity and amount of lean muscle mass you hold. 

To begin tracking macros:

  1. Calculate your daily calorie intake based on your measurements, daily energy expenditure and goals.

  2. Calculate the macros perfect for you using THE BOD Macro Calculator.

  3. Ensure you hit these target macros everyday and keep it consistent over time.

  4. Make changes accordingly. For example: increase your calories at a small scale to allow your metabolism to adapt. Or, decrease your calories at a small scale to trigger further fat loss or weight loss.
