Calories, carbs and macros — oh my!

Sometimes it feels like nutrition advice is constantly changing and even conflicting. Are carbs good or bad? Does eating late at night really make you gain weight? All day, every day and sometimes on Sunday, we look at the data, we look at the fads, we look at the labels and try to make sense of it for you.

With our most recent video series, “Ask a Trainer,” we took it one step closer and got the questions direct from you. From healthy snack suggestions to stress eating, you brought us no shortage of nutrition questions.

Luckily, we know a few experts on the topic, and they’re willing to help lend their all the expertise, recommendations and motivation you need. In this video, our nutrition pros address macronutrients, weight loss and the difference between carbs and calories.
