We’ve all heard of fats, carbs, and protein, but do you understand how the body uses them for energy? There are four specific phases the body goes through to convert the food you eat to energy, and if your body isn’t digesting these things properly, it can lead to some serious problems.

So today I’m going to discuss your macronutrients—meaning your fats, your carbs, and your proteins—and how they affect your energy. Listen in to learn how our bodies convert these nutrients, what happens if you’re not digesting them as you should, and why being healthy isn't so much about your diet as it is about how well your body processes it.
