Macros is basically shorthand for macronutrients, a term used to describe the three key food groups we all require for our bodies to function: carbohydrates (to fuel energy), fats (to keep you satiated) and proteins (to build and repair muscle).

Strike the right balance and you’ll not only lose weight, you’ll be more effective at burning fat and building lean muscle.
