Nutrition Lingo: What are “Macros” & “Micros”? Why should you care?

You may have overheard a conversation or two where people mentioned how good their “MACROs” have been lately. Or how they aren’t getting enough “MICROS” so they need in increase their veggies.

WHAT ARE MACROS?

MACRO stands for MACRO NUTRIENTS, which are nutrients required in large amounts. These include FATs, PROTEINs and CARBs that make up your calorie consumption.

WHAT ARE MICROS?

MICROS refer to MICRONUTRIENTS, nutrients required in small quantities to sustain life such as vitamins and minerals.

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE:
How you structure your MACROS will help effect your waistline and body composition, while the MICROS will provide your body with vital nutrients it needs to thrive and optimize its performance.

If you are deficient in a certain MICRO, like magnesium, you may feel tense. If you aren’t getting enough of a MACRO like fat, you may notice your skin is dry.
