What are Macro Nutrients?
Macronutrients are food components that we need to take in on a daily basis to ensure our organisms are working properly. The three main ones are Protein (meat, fish, and dairy products, nuts or beans), Carbohydrates (white bread, white sugar, fruits or vegetables) and Fats (You can find fats in products such as oil, nuts and avocados).
How to calculate macro nutrients for weight loss / gain?
To calculate macros into your goals to lose or gain weight, we reccomend to use the BMR calculator to get your Basal Metabolic Rate and minus/plus 500 kcal to that number. Once you do this, it will give you the ammount in grams for each macro.
Is it possible to get the same nutrients on a plant based diet?
Obviously meat, fish and dairy are the most efficient ways to get nutrients into your system, however they are not the only source. Foods such as nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, nut butters, tofu, chickpeas and lentils are some of the best sources of solid nutrients such as protein and iron if you have any food intolerences. You may have to add more of them into your diet than you would if you were to consume meat products but you can easily get the same results if you put the work in!
