HELP! What Do I Eat?! | MACROS CHART GUIDE

Trust me. This “Help! What do I Eat?” macros chart will make our fitness lives SO. MUCH. EASIER. Good day everyone! This post is specially made for people who are tracking their macros AKA 

  • Carbohydrates
  • Protein
  • Fat

Macros are how calories are broken down according to nutrient value. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to gain weight or lose weight. We track the big 3 to determine how much food our body needs. If you want to learn more, feel free to read my “IIFYM Guide for Beginners” guide or visit Macros Inc. 

Even if I’m using My Fitness Pal to track what I eat, there are days when I hit my certain macros but significantly lack others. That’s why after careful research I found this super duper handy chart that tells us what to eat depending on what we need

Excited? Me too!
