Macronutrient Intake: Carbohydrate, Protein and Fat
The problem people have nowadays is that the media has vilified each of the macronutrients and led you to believe that they are all bad.
"Fat increases chance of heart disease."
"High protein intake can damage your kidneys and liver."
"Sugar is addictive and causes you to gain weight."
Everybody has heard at least one of these in the past. The thing is they simple aren't true. While they originate from some scientific research, they are a prime example of the research being extrapolated incorrectly and a false conclusion being drawn. Each one of them has a place in your diet and I'm about to explain why. None of the macronutrients inherently cause you to gain weight, hence why we spoke about calorie balance first.
