Macronutrients are probably some of the most important nutrients that you can feed yourself. Why? They give you energy and eating the right ones can actually increase your energy production helping you to go that extra mile. Nutrition is just important as exercise in maintaining a healthy body. A lot of athletes already know this, but did you know that it is important to keep a log of your diet to make sure that you are getting the nutrients that you need. For more information on an athletes diet please read Calculating an Athletes Dietary Needs. In this video Scott Herman breaks it down for us.
