Macro- and Micro-nutrient for Athletes

There are three essential macronutrients that people are probably already somewhat familiar with, at least by name. These macronutrients are Carbohydrate, Protein, and Fat and they all serve different but essential purposes and Sportsmen need to make sure they consume the right amount of each in their diet. Almost everything you eat will contain a combination of the three macronutrients

Carbohydrates: Carbohydrates are the most commonly maligned macronutrient when it comes to weight loss. While your body can do without Carbohydrates in your diet, you need them for your body to function at an optimal level and there is no need to remove them from your diet to successfully lose weight. There is nothing inherent about Carbohydrates that will make you gain or lose weight

Protein: Protein helps repair and maintain body tissues that naturally break down in daily life-style. Studies have shown that high-protein diets are better for fat loss and building muscle mass and help in making you feel fuller for longer. In fact you can expect these positive side-effects of a high Protein diet even while maintaining your Carbohydrate and Fat intake – which should come as no surprise to you by now. Fortunately, most adults in the United States get enough protein to meet their daily needs.

Fats: Much like Carbohydrates; Fat is a misunderstood macronutrient. Many people incorrectly believe that eating fat will make you fat, which is simply not true. The only thing that will make you fat is consuming more calories than you burn. Fat is not only essential for growth and development but Fat have been scientifically proven to help your body better absorb nutrients and vitamins from foods you eat. Fat also makes food taste better and makes you feel fuller for longer.
