    What's more important; Calories or Macros?

    Whats more important to hit at the end of the day... Your calories or your macros? Also, lets say you hit your expected calories for the day but in the form of different macros (lets say more carbs/fat), what impact would this have on body composition?

    Your macros determine your calories.
    If you hit your macros, you will hit your calories.

    If you are not competing, it's not a big deal IMO. My macros fluctuate day in and day out. I, however, always make sure I hit pro and fat within a certain range tho.

    What's more important, a full tank of gas, or air in your tires? They both matter, they're interrelated.

    if u mean one day, than as above, it won't matter.

    but im assuming by "at the end of they day" you're talking in the long run. well, you should focus on hitting both target calories and macros.

    as for your second question. lets not consider the impracticallity of getting all calories from one macro source and say (read the stickies) and hit the recommended amounts. additions to the minimums (while still hitting you're calories) are unlikely to have a noticeable impact on body comp.

    of course some folks just feel and perform better with a different amount of each macro, but that's up to u to figure out.

    Outside of adequate protein, they don't matter much for body composition (retarded examples aside).
