Macronutrients. Macro- what?

Nutrition biochemistry in a nutshell.

Bodybuilder and biochemists are both somehow geeks, but you do not have to be one to understand the basics. The major building blocks of food, called the macronutrients (“macros” for the cool kids), are just three. Here is an overview of what they are, their energy content and where you can find them.


I hope you enjoyed my nutrition biochemistry lesson in a nutshell. In my next blog post I will talk about the metabolic relationship of the three macros and why you get fat when you overeat regardless if you are on low-carb, low-fat, low-whatsoever.

Success! You're on the list.
