Macros Don’t Have To Be Hard — Follow The Tips Below And You’ll See Progress In No Time!

Start with protein

Before you even begin to approach your carbohydrate and fat numbers, lock in your protein intake first.

In general, you should aim to eat less than 8 grams of fat in your pre and post-workout meals.

The most essential way to fuel this process is with food, so make sure you have the right kinds and plenty of them!
