What is a micronutrient and what is a macronutrient and why should I care?

Originally aired on 09-07-2017

 

Questions from listeners regarding why my doctor talks about “balancing my macronutrients”, what difference would that make anyway?  What are the types of food in a “macro” category?  Are any really better than another or can I just eat anything?  So what is a micronutrient?  Where do they come from?  Do I need to supplement my diet?

Some good top-down information: https://mynutrition.wsu.edu/nutrition-basics/
