Understanding the Basics: BMRs, Macros, and Calories

Before diving into how Food for Fitness Meals can assist you in your journey to better nutrition, it’s important to understand the basic concepts of nutrition. At the core of a healthy diet are three key components: Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), macronutrients (macros), and calories.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories your body needs to maintain basic bodily functions while at rest. This includes functions like breathing, circulating blood, and regulating body temperature. Understanding your BMR can help you determine the number of calories you need to consume to maintain your current weight or achieve your weight loss goals.


on the other hand, are the three essential nutrients that make up the majority of your diet: carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Each macronutrient plays a specific role in your body, from providing energy (carbohydrates) to building and repairing tissues (proteins) to supporting hormone production and cell function (fats). Finding the right balance of macros for your body and fitness goals is crucial for overall health and performance.

In Summary

Finally, calories are the units of energy found in food and beverages. To maintain a healthy weight, you need to balance the number of calories you consume with the number of calories you burn through activity and basic bodily functions. Tracking your daily calorie intake can help you achieve your weight loss or muscle gain goals more effectively.
