All the good stuff that would surely wreck your diet if you even so much as thought about eating them... or would they?!?!
Eating clean "healthy" food can certainly help you lose weight and burn fat, but there is no magical connection between ‘health food’ and weight loss.
The fat loss details are in the calories. Yup, calories. Something we all know about, but avoid like the plague.
What I am about to say is bound to upset a lot of people. Most of the so called nutritionist out there are more misguided than the clients they lead in to ignorant metabolism suppression.
It's NOT about the foods you eat!
It's about how much Protein, Carbs and Fats you take in every day. The composition of those 3 things make up how many calories you eat. Based on your body type and weight loss goals, you should ONLY eat a certain amount of Protein, Carbs, and Fats.
You can eat whatever you want... as long as It Fits Your Macros.
Tracking macros via IIFYM teaches us that these so called ‘dirty’ foods are ok to eat as long as we stay within our own required calorie intake for the day.
What bodybuilders have known for years is that everyone is different. We all have different bodies, different metabolisms, different muscle mass and a hundred other things that set us apart from everyone else on this planet. This is where IIFYM shines. Rather than telling your how many calories you need based on your gender or even based on your weight loss goals, it looks at every person individually and tells them, with a made up stat of 95% certainty how many calories to eat.
• IIFYM doesn’t care if you eat pizza, or chicken breast.
• IIFYM doesn’t shame you if you chose ice cream instead of oatmeal.
• Nor does IIFYM care how often you eat, or how many meals you eat in a day.
Eat the foods you love, stay within your own personal macro nutrient range and burn fat without the hunger, cravings and pain that comes with fat loss dieting!
Notice I did not say “starve your self, and then enjoy one slice of pizza per week”.
This is because IIFYM is based on Science. Not hype and voodoo. A 15% reduction in calories is all that is needed to make your body a fat burning furnace, with 20% being ideal for most people to really get things cranked up.
There is more to it but it really is quite simple:
1. Know how many calories your body burns in an average day (your TDEE)
2. Subtract 15-20% less calories from that number
3. Split those calories up between fat, protein and carbohydrates (with adequate fiber and water intake) in an specific way that preserves muscle, encourages fat loss, and optimizes hormones, while launching mood and energy levels through the roof!
This is all that it takes for you to burn fat at an alarming and predictable rate. It works 100% of the time for 100% of our clients, and it is guaranteed to work for you too!
Within just two years of it's introduction, the IIFYM system and success stories spread like wildfire. People were losing weight without the typical suffering that goes along with dieting because it doesn’t involve starving yourself or doubling your efforts at the gym.
