09 Aug The Macro Method: The science-backed approach to lasting weight loss
by Helen Foster & Angela Dowden
Macronutrients or ‘macros’ are the three main nutrient groups your body can’t live without: carbohydrates, fats and protein.
So many diets focus on calorie counting, but not all calories are created equal: your body doesn’t process 20 calories of kale and 20 calories of chocolate in the same way because of their different macro breakdowns.
Macro counting is all about balance. By eating the right ratio of carbohydrates, fats and protein, you can lose weight and build muscle in a healthy, sustainable way without avoiding the foods you love. This flexible approach to dieting encourages you to make smart food choices that guarantee results.
The Macro Method will tell you everything you need to know about counting macros, including the latest research about how the diet works and its nutritional benefits. The 21-day plan will help you ditch the calorie counting for good, with more than 40 simple recipes to tempt you.
