"What's a macro!?"
We get this a lot when working with new clients. One of the first things we do when taking on a new client is educating them on how to track their macro nutrients. 
Carbs, Proteins, Fats
1 grams Carbs = 4 calories
1 gram Protein = 4 calories
1 gram Fat = 9 calories

In this Graphic I wanted to give you a visual comparison as well as macro break down of 2 meals.

Above is macro break down of just 1 Costco muffin. 
740 Calories
107 grams Carbs
8 grams Protein 
31 grams Fat

Again, just 1 muffin.

Below that is meal I put together with comparable macro stats.
Made up of grilled Brussels sprouts,  1 fried egg,  1 avocado, 1 apple

636 Calories
63 grams of Carbs
18 grams of Protein 
36 Grams of Fat

Which meal do you think is healthier and going to better satiate your appetite?? Know what your eating.
