Macronutrients are the three types of foods we require in large amounts in our diet: carbohydrates, protein & fats.
Use the links below to read more detail about each macronutrient, what role each plays and how much of each you should have built into your diet.
Whilst not classed as a macronutrient, hydration is vitally important in any diet, body composition goals and performance levels. The body is made up of 60-70% water, so in simple terms, it keeps us alive! Under-consumption of water not only leads to dehydration, but has an overall adverse affect on your goals; it causes a decrease in blood flow to the brain and a decrease in the kidney function and also contributes to poor digestion.
