Macronutrients and A Well-Balanced Diet

By Bentz Tozer, Jr., B.S., CPT

This month, we are talking about macronutrients: what they are, what they do and how to balance them to achieve optimal health.

Macronutrients are substances that provide calories or energy to the body and keep our metabolism running for muscle growth and repair as well as for our brain, heart and kidneys to function properly. They are the fuel for all body functions. There are three macronutrients: carbohydrates, protein and fat.

Carbohydrates are the main energy source for the body and, according to the USDA, should be 45 to 65 percent of our daily caloric intake. Carbs are broken down inside the body and turned into glucose, which is the preferred energy source for our muscles, brain, heart and central nervous system. There are two types of carbohydrates – simple and complex. Simple carbs are sugars, the kind found naturally in vegetables and fruits as well as the sugars that are refined as table sugar and added to sodas, desserts and many other foods. Complex carbs contain more than two sugar molecules, such as potatoes or brown rice.
