Why count macros instead of calories?

Short Answer

When you count macros, you are counting calories. Just more detailed. Tracking macros vs calories gives more detailed control of your weight loss or gain.

Long Answer

A calorie is just a calorie, and you can count just calories to lose weight or gain weight. Calories in vs Calories Out (CICO) is what determines weight gain or loss. When we track macros vs calories we can determine where that weight comes from (muscle or fat) among other benefits.

CICO = weight loss or gain
Protein = Body composition/muscle building
Carbs = Performance
Fats = Hormones
