How Much Protein should I intake?
How Many Carbs should I intake?
How Much Fat should I intake?
Let's Get to Counting . . .
Remember macronutrients (Protein, Carbs, and Fats) contain calories, micronutrients (Vitamins and Minerals) do not. So lets look at an example of how to count Macros using UXO Whey Isolate's Nutrient Panel as an example.
UXO Whey Isolate contains a Protein count of 24g x 4 calories = 96 / Carbohydrate count of 3g x 4 = 12 / Fat count of .5g x 9 = 4.5. (96 + 12 + 4.5 = 112.5).
This is very close to the calorie count listed on the bottle, but having a more accurate count can make all the difference. Especially when determining intake amounts of each.
Now lets look at a popular nutrition bar on the market and how deceiving it can be. This product claims to have 110 calories, but read carefully . . .
