Macronutrients

Macronutrients are carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

Protein is vital for every cell in the human body and is the most abundant
substance in your body. Protein continually needs to be replaced by eating the
right foods. Proteins are packed full of amino acids your body needs to survive
and thrive. A high protein low carb diet may be just what your body needs for
stress, anxiety, and functional adrenals.
Proteins provide enzymes, hormones, structure, antibodies, and maintains fluid
balance. Proteins also transport nutrients and other compounds and maintain
acid-base balance.

Foods high in protein:

● Eggs (Whole eggs are among the healthiest and most nutritious foods on
the planet. They are loaded with vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, eye protecting antioxidants and brain nutrients that most people don’t get enough of.)
● Almonds
● Chicken
● Oats
● Cheese
● Milk

● Broccoli
● Lean Beef
● Tuna
● Quinoa (Quinoa is a resistant starch)
● Lentils
● Pumpkin Seeds
● Flax seeds, sunflower seeds, and Chia seeds
● Turkey
● Fish
● Shrimp
● Brussels Sprouts
