Should I count my calories and/or macros?

The experts agree there are benefits of counting calories and macros, but tracking them on your own can be overwhelming. That’s where you might be happy to learn that there is online coaching opportunity, an app and a registered nutritionist can help you master the basics of healthy eating so you can incorporate them into your day-to-day for long-term success.

Calories are units for energy. When we count calories throughout our day, we are essentially counting the energy we get from the food we eat. So if we consume 2,000 calories during a day, we can look at that as consuming 2,000 units of energy.

Macros are similar to calories because they are also measurable units of energy that we get from food. But more specifically, macros, or macronutrients, are the three foundational nutrients of dietary health: carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

Long story short the idea of counting macros originated with a group of bodybuilders who were tired of the strict limitations that came with crash diets and counting calories. Since then, macros have made their way into mainstream health conversations through popular diets like keto.

When it comes to specific nutrition requirements and calories counting, using the hand of a professional nutritionist is not bad at all.
