Macronutrients are nutrients that the body needs in large amounts and include protein, carbohydrates, and fats.
For weight loss, it is generally recommended to consume a balanced proportion of macronutrients, with a slightly higher proportion of protein, a moderate amount of healthy fats, and a lower proportion of carbohydrates.
This balance can help to promote feelings of fullness, support muscle mass, and encourage the body to burn fat for fuel.
The AMDR for carbohydrates is 55-70%, for fat is 15-25%, and for protein is 7-20% of the energy intake for adults. (Research Study)
This ratio is not a rule, it's just a recommendation, and it's important to talk to your dietitian to find a plan that is tailored to your individual needs and goals.
Switch to a high protein (after consulting your dietician) to accomplish your weight loss goals.
You can incorporate healthy fats such as avocado, nuts, and olive oil to aid in weight loss as they can help control hunger and support overall health.
