FLEXIBLE DIETING

Most conventional diets are built on the idea that certain foods are good for you, and others are bad for you. (Brown Rice = Good; Ice Cream = Bad). “Clean diets” assume that body composition and weight-loss are determined solely by the types of foods you put into your body.
Eating clean will definitely get you results, but eating nothing but chicken, brown rice and broccoli for extended periods of time can have a huge negative impact on a person’s psychological well-being.
The notion that amazing physiques can only be attained by ‘eating clean’ is unquestionably outdated; and therefore it’s no surprise that flexible dieting is taking the world by storm…


IIFYM

Flexible Dieting or IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) is simply the tracking of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat) to achieve a certain body composition.
There are three main macros: Protein, Fat and Carbohydrates and they make up the majority of our diet (= Macro). One gram of each macro has a calorie value.
1 gram = 4 calories
1 gram = 4 calories
1 gram = 9 calories
Instead of counting calories (e.g. 2000 cals), IIFYM counts or ‘tracks’ macronutrients (e.g. 150g Protein, 80g Fat, 170g Carbohydrate = 2000 cals) which has a more effective influence on the body’s composition; rather than just tracking weight gained vs weight lost.
So in essence, flexible dieting allows for ANY type of food; as long as it fits your macros.

THE HEALTH FACTOR

By definition, flexible dieting dictates that there are no ‘good foods’ or ‘bad foods’. After all, the body can’t differentiate a ‘healty protein’ from an ‘unhealthy protein’. So basically, you can eat anything you want as long as it fits your macros.
HOWEVER: it is important to still make healthy food choices as micronutrients are vital for your overall health.
Flexible dieting makes healthy eating sustainable by complimenting a ‘clean diet’ with foods that are generally labeled as “unhealthy”.

 

PUT INTO PRACTICE

In order to achieve a desired body composition, all you need to do is respect your daily allowance of macronutrients.
But before you can start respecting or ‘tracking’ your macros, you need to first calculate your numbers. How many fats, proteins and carbs do you need to achieve your desired body composition?
Then, once you’ve calculated these numbers; you can start tracking your macros by putting your food scale to work. Simply weigh out your foods, and put their nutritional information (available on the food packaging) into a food-tracking app like Myfitnesspal.
This may seem a bit elaborate at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a very user friendly tool that allows you to keep track of your daily macro allowance.
