MACRONUTRIENTS

Updated: Jan 13, 2022

I will give you in-depth insights into the world of macronutrients. The article will be long, so you will find the following overview a refreshing relief:



Macronutrients are controversially discussed. Not only is there a professional battle between orthodox and alternative medicine, but opinions among experts also differ greatly. How much of what? Which diet is the best? I was also exposed to this dilemma for a long time, which is why I decided to study to become a nutrition coach. Now I am able to form my own opinion and advise accordingly. My ultimate goal in my consultations. What is YOUR ideal diet?⁠ I am convinced that there is no such thing as THE diet, but only an individually adapted diet is of importance.


Why is an individual diet more important to me than a general diet? Because every body is different and has a different history.


I personally think that no matter what diet you follow, all three macronutrients must be taken into account for a long-term diet. A massive reduction or even renunciation of one of them for a longer period of time is unhealthy in my opinion. In the following articles you will find out why.


The macronutrients cover the following topics: Carbohydrate Fats Proteins


 

Carbohydrate

Honestly, do you see through that?

  • Single sugar

  • Dual sugar

  • Multiple sugars

  • Background on sugar and its production

  • Designations in finished products

  • Cravings

  • Reduction tips and alternatives

And if carbohydrates are sugars, what does the "of which sugars" in the declaration of contents mean?

▽ What are monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides?

▽ Why do we need dietary fibre and which sugar makes insulin levels rise faster?

▽ What does SBU say?

▽ And what sugar names are hidden in ready-made products?

▽ How does ravenous hunger develop, how can I reduce sugar and what alternatives are there?

Fats

For a long time, fats were maligned. They were called fatteners. Yet they belong to the essential macronutrients that our body needs for optimal function. Of course, it's the quantity that makes the poison.

  • Ratio of omega-6 to omega-3

  • Saturated vs. unsaturated

  • Monounsaturated fatty acids

  • Polyunsaturated fatty acids

  • Targets to aim for

  • What is DHA and DPA?

  • Recognising quality supplements

In my article on fats you will find:


▽ An overview of the fatty acid jungle.

▽ What the optimal omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acid ratio is.

▽ What the difference is between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids.

▽ Which foods provide omega-3 and which provide omega-6.

▽ What DPA and EPA is and whether additional supplements are useful and in what quantity.

▽ What trans fats are, how they are formed and why they are very harmful.

Proteins

Proteins are essential for our body because they perform many functions in our body.

  • Difference between proteins & peptides

  • What are amino acids?

  • What are the 8 essential amino acids?

  • Why are proteins important?

  • What happens when they are heated?

  • What are plant sources of protein?

Read my blog article on proteins to learn....

▽ what amino acids and peptides are.

▽ Which are the 8 essential amino acids and what foods they are found in.

▽ Why they are important. What happens when proteins are heated and what plant sources of protein are.
