What Is The Most Important Macro To Master To Reach Your Goals?



Ok, so everyone has probably heard by now that calories are king, right? To lose weight, you need to be in a calorie deficit. To gain muscle, you need to be at least at maintenance calories, and maybe even in a surplus.


But which macronutrient (or macro) do you REALLY need to nail to reach your body composition goals?


PROTEIN


You can get protein from meats, dairy, protein supplements, and there are plenty of plant based supplements. But most people seriously underestimate how much they're getting on a daily basis. Protein helps with building muscle mass and so many other functions in the body. And did you know that the more muscle mass you have, the higher your basal metabolic rate? Protein also helps with satiety, so even if you're in a calorie deficit, you will feel full.


I spend SO MUCH time problem solving with clients around how to hit their protein goal for the day. Are you getting enough?


If you want help with figuring out how much protein you need or getting started with tracking your food intake, check out my macro calculation and macro counting guide HERE.
