Calories vs Macros

If you’re trying to lose weight, you may have heard about counting macros and calories as part of your diet plan. While both of these strategies focus on portion control, there are some key differences between them that can make one more beneficial than the other.

When it comes to counting calories, it’s all about reducing the total amount of energy (calories) consumed in order to create a calorie deficit. This means that any type of food is acceptable as long as the calorie count remains in check.

On the other hand, counting macros is more focused on meeting macronutrient goals rather than reducing calories. Macronutrients are proteins, fats, and carbohydrates that provide energy for your body to function properly. For example, eating a low carb diet would mean making sure that your macros consist mainly of proteins and fats with few carbs.

The key difference between counting calories and counting macros is that counting macros allows you to target specific goals such as maintaining muscle while cutting fat or increasing strength while decreasing fat percentage. It also provides flexibility in terms of food choices since you can meet your macro goals with a variety of foods instead of having to stick to one type of food or reduce portion sizes drastically.

If you’re looking for an effective way to cut weight without sacrificing nutrition, consider counting macros instead of just counting calories! It offers many advantages such as improved energy levels, enhanced athletic performance and better overall health outcomes – all with fewer restrictions on food choices.
