Macro Type #1 - Carb Fueled
(MACRO TYPE #1) Carb Fueled
This means you struggle to gain quality weight and have been naturally lean for most of your life. Quality foods with more carbs enable you to add curves to your frame for a fuller, healthier, and stronger body. You function best and feel energized when the highest percentage of your macronutrient food intake consists of healthy, high-quality carbs. You should embrace foods like whole grains, root vegetables, rice, potatoes, fruit, and vegetables. In most cases, this means you will be moderate with your protein intake and eat foods lower in dietary fats.
Carb-Fueled Macro Types tend to have a “fast metabolism” compared to the average person and have difficulty gaining weight regardless of how much they eat. They often are picky eaters with small appetites, and in most cases have been thin their entire lives. This body type has a tiny bone structure, narrow shoulders, flat chest, narrow waist and hips, small wrists, skinny ankles, and an overall straight-lined body type. Sometimes, but not always, they’re a bit on the lanky side, with longer-than-average limbs and longer-than-average bellies.
Every Macro Type can gain weight, but when a Carb-Fueled Macro Type gains weight, it tends to be “skinny fat” weight gain, which translates to a high percentage of body fat and low muscle mass. Even at a healthy weight, they can still have a disproportionate amount of body fat, in most cases concentrated in the torso. This makes these Macro Types feel the need to work out harder and eat even less, but that’s not the solution.
If this is you, your body loses fat with the most ease, and it requires less effort to transform your body composition. Your biggest challenge will be eating more food. Yes, you read that correctly! What you need to do to get the lean, shapely physique you want may run counter to what you’ve been told. You need to be on a carb-dominant nutrition approach with dialed-in protein and fats to support your physical goals. Getting more of your calories from carbs will support you in gaining muscle by improving your recovery and fueling optimal physical performance. For the carb-dominant Macro Type, carbs provide the primary fuel source to train at maximum capacity, to recover the most efficiently, and support muscle growth.
This type is the most resilient of all the macro types and is also excellent for elite athletes that require more fuel to sustain their training needs. Before you start loading up on carbs, let me define an elite athlete. High-level athletes tend to train a minimum of two hours a day, six days a week, and burn at least 1,000 calories a day from workouts alone. If you are performing more than ninety minutes of cardiovascular exercise daily, you most likely need a carb-dominant nutrition plan to compensate for the volume of calories you burn. This may also apply if you have a physically demanding job such as a nurse who logs 20,000 steps per day, a construction worker, or a server who is on their feet for more than eight hours a day.
Last but not least, the carb fueled macro type is ideal if you are dying to add curves to your frame. You don’t care about the scale; you want a “fit thick” aesthetic. For women, this means you have no desire to look über thin and want fuller glutes and legs while maintaining a slimmer torso, and men want a fuller chest, back, and arms with a V shape from shoulders to waist. Your priority is to change your shape and you want to have curves for days.
You may have attempted getting thicker in the past, but your efforts only resulted in a bloated midsection, and the parts of your body that you wanted to get bigger refused to grow. You may have given up and told yourself that the only way for you to improve your look is to just get lean, as the “fit thick” thing will just not work for you. You know you need to eat healthy; you know you need to eat more, but what that translates to in real food perplexes you. If this is you, and you do not have a low carb tolerance related to diabetes, PCOS, insulin resistance, or a hormone imbalance, you will do best as a carb-fueled macro type plan.
