IIFYM – if it fits your macros or Flexible Dieting is becoming more and more popular, but it’s really nothing new in terms of bodybuilding nutrition.
Virtually all bodybuilding diet plans are based around counting macro-nutrients (i.e. protein, carbohydrates, and fats). Rather than most traditional weight loss diets that only focus on counting calories.
Counting macro-nutrients is a vastly superior method of tracking your nutrition compared to just counting calories because if your macros add up, your calories will add up automatically. Each gram of protein has 4 calories, each gram of carbohydrate has 4 calories, and each gram of fat has 9 calories.
Where the flexible dieting part comes into play is realizing that different foods can meet your macro-nutrient needs. You don’t have to restrict yourself to eating nothing but chicken, rice, and broccoli for months on end in order to lose fat and get ripped.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some incredible physiques that have come about as a result of eating a very limited diet. So being super strict with your food choices certainly does “work”. But I don’t believe that it’s necessarily the best approach for long term dieting success.
There are dozens of foods that are good sources of protein, we don’t need to limit ourselves to just dry boiled chicken.
There are dozens of foods that are good sources of carbohydrates, we don’t need to limit ourselves to brown rice.
And there are dozens of foods that are good sources of veggies, healthy fats, etc.
You can mix and match different types of foods to make up your bodybuilding diet plan and still get just as good (if not better) results and enjoy the process.
