    protein waffle

    Protein waffle:

    Protein waffle, my absolute favorite!

    The protein waffle recipe is very similar to my 1 carb waffle!! It’s basically the same EXCEPT with oat and peanut butter deliciousness on top!! This protein waffle is one of my “go to” post workout meals, especially after a good cardio session!

    It’s very macro friendly with only 370 calories, it’s filling, provides the perfect fuel to help your body recover, and is loaded with nutrients!

    I sometimes like to add 1-2 ounces of blueberries on top of the finished product, depending on how i’m feeling, but you can mix it up with anything! Nut butter, fruit, sugar free syrup (also a life savor), nothing at all, or different kinds of oats!

    Why: protein waffle

    This protein waffle is simple, fast, easy—even if you’re in a hurry—and so so so delicious, you’ll be looking forward to eating it every single morning! Careful though, you’ll get hooked.

    The protein I use is Pescience (always) and then the oats I used are these wonderful heaven-sent prepackaged amazingness! They are called ‘oatfit’ or ‘better than oats.’ You can find them at almost any grocery store, for my local Utah peeps, I usually buy them at Smith’s for a pretty decent price!

    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!
