What is a Macro(nutrient)

Macros, short for macronutrients, are the fat, protein, and carbohydrates that make up food and help you create energy. ... When you count macros and adjust their ratios, you can use them to achieve health goals like losing weight, gaining muscle, or entering maintenance mode.

By being able to control the amounts of macros we eat, we control our caloric intake. Everyone's body thrives at a different macro make up. There is NO one size fits all. For example, My macros will not fit you or the next persons. They are specific to each individual.
