How Important Are Macronutrients in a Diet?

In relation to diets and meal plans, it’s important to make sure that we are consuming enough healthy macronutrients.  Macronutrients include proteins, carbohydrates, and fats (both monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) and they do amazing things for our bodies!

Macronutrients are so important to our bodys’ health and nutrition that we basically can’t live without them. For example, Proteins repair tissue, restore bones,  build cartilage, and help your blood cells. No matter what diet you follow, sufficient amounts of macronutrients are very important to your diet.
