Do I Need to Eat All My Macros?

You need to try to stick to the macros for balance. But, if by the end of the day, you have not filled them completely, don't worry about it.

Here are the basic rules to follow:

- Do not exceed your carb limit

- Try to reach your protein limit. Protein promotes a feeling of satiety and prevents the loss of muscle mass. However, it is not recommended to exceed the permissible protein norm: its excess turns into glucose and breaks the transition to ketosis, slowing down the process of fat burning.

- Eat at least 60% of your fat limit, but do not exceed it. Exceeding the fat limit forces your body to use this excess for fuel instead of breaking down your own fat.

- Do not exceed your calorie limit, but also make sure to eat enough.

According to Harvard Health Publishing, calorie intake should not be lower than 1200 for women and 1500 for men if you are not under the supervision of a health professional.

Too much calorie deficit can, on the contrary, slow down your metabolism, reduce the rate of weight loss or stop it altogether and negatively affect your overall health.

Your macros are already calculated by the app in such a way that you will be able to lose weight, but at the same time you will receive the necessary amount of nutrients for your body.
