Nutrition Tips from Albany Gym
Macronutrients are the three basic components of your diet and/or meals: fats, carbohydrates, and protein.
Fats are essential for your body to function, they are your body’s fuel. Fats help maintain a healthy metabolism, help with proper organ function, and can help you regulate your body temperature.
Carbohydrates are super important to keep your brain and muscles functioning at optimal levels. Carbs are also your body’s main energy source, and if you aren’t eating enough you might notice that you have more headaches, feel tired, weak, nauseous and more.
Protein is another macronutrient that is crucial to have in your diet. Protein helps repair and build your muscles after a good workout, which will help to burn body fat over time. Eating enough protein can also help with weight management, regardless if your goal is to lose weight, gain weight, or maintain your weight!
