Macronutrients 101: FATS

Aug 21, 02:03 PM

Macronutrients are where you get your energy from and they include FATS, PROTEINS and CARBOHYDRATES (alcohol is also thought of as a macronutrient even though it shouldn’t ideally contribute a lot to your nutrient intake). Macronutrients (for the sake of this series we will stick to macronutrients being the fats, proteins and carbs) provide energy and this form of energy is what is commonly known of as CALORIES.

I wanted to take you through each of the macronutrients and explain exactly what they are, why they are important for our bodies and bust some myths around each of them.

This episode starts this series off by discussing FATS!

It covers:

  • What are fats?

  • Does fat make you fat?

  • What are the types of fat?

  • Other 'fat' terminology

  • How much fat should you eat?

  • The Mediterranean Diet
