    How to Use IIFYM for Weight Loss

    Many people have heard of the IIFYM diet recently. It’s a big deal! It is a way to comfortably diet while still enjoying your life and not cutting out social events, time with friends, going out to eat, indulging in your cravings, or feeling guilty about eating something you “shouldn’t.” This diet isn’t for everyone, of course, it may not be right for you or you may feel better about following a structured, more strict approach to dieting, but for many, this is a lifesaver.

    Now, How do I use this diet to lose weight even while eating some stuff I couldn’t with other diets? 

    Flexible dieting doesn’t mean fitting as much junk and sweets into your macros as possible… Most of the diet consists of whole foods, lean meats, MICROS, and nutrients! It just means you can still, with moderation, have the foods that feed your soul while still accomplishing your fitness goals!

    It is very simple. Track and determine the amount of macronutrients your body needs to maintain the weight you have, lessen that amount, and monitor it for a couple weeks and see how your body reacts. Make sure to include all types of foods and keep your diet clean, but enjoy it too. You can refer to my article on Macronutrients, which has a break down of EXACTLY what they are and why they are needed!

    NUMBER ONE MYTH TO DIETING

    What is the biggest LIE that people are saying about dieting?

    “You can’t eat sugar and get lean, stay away from processed foods, stay away from fats, stay away from gluten, don’t eat sodium or carbs.” THIS IS NONSENSE! Don’t listen to it! Everything in moderation. There is absolutely no reason for any of you to exclude an entire food group from your diet, unless you have tested positive for a certain allergy. The biggest reason I love flexible dieting is because it doesn’t mean fitting as much junk food into your macros as you can, most of the foods are whole, unprocessed, lean meats, fruits, vegetables, and filled with nutrients! BUT it allows you to fit things into your diet that you love without harming your progress. It is more unhealthy, in my opinion, to completely eliminate entire food groups than it is to allow yourself to eat everything in moderation. PLUS when you think and tell yourself, “sugar is bad. stay away. I can’t eat it or ill get fat.” All of a sudden you crave it more and more and catch yourself binging. Hit your macros consistently, get your fiber and Micronutrients in, then eat things that make your soul and heart happy. Like dessert 🙂
