Hit Your Macros with "Single Source" Foods
“Single-source macro” is a term we use for foods that have only ONE of the three macros: protein, carbs or fats. Having a list of foods to turn to when you have only one macro you need to fill is extremely helpful – you don't want to go over your other macros by accident! For example, if you just have fat left at the end of your day, cheese wouldn’t be a good option because it also contains a good portion of protein. Building entire meals with single-source, and some basic two-source macros, does make it easier to track more accurately. It’s a great tool for beginners and for overcoming weight goal plateaus.
