How do I count Macros?
Macro counting or tracking seems hard, but it is actually really simple. There are many online calculators that will help you determine the amount of each macronutrient you need to hit your specific goals. You can find our macro calculator and handy guide here.
Put simply, you find the macro ratio that take the number of calories each macronutrient provides and divide it by the total calories in the snack or food. Example: Macro Snacks have 11g of protein per 140 calorie serving. Each gram of protein has 4 calories, so 11 x 4 = 44. Take that number and divide it by the total calories in the bag. 44/140= .31 or 31%.
We round down to get to an even number of 30% protein per bag of Macro Snacks. For reference, each gram of carbs has 4 calories and fat has 9 calories per gram.
