what is IIFYM, if it fits your macros and does it work?

Enter the craze of macro tracking: IIFYM
If It Fits Your Macros

A diet whereby you can eat whatever you want, whenever you want as long as IIFYM!

Donโ€™t get me wrong, IIFYM was the biggest appeal to me when I ditched fad diets in 2020 to 100% commit to macro tracking.

And initially, I was a kid in a candy store tracking all of the yummy treats I had put on the forbidden list as most of my carbs and fats. You see, I had to get it out of my system!

But one the sugar ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ settled, and I got real with my why for wanting to change, I knew that food quality was far more important. After all, I was putting in all this effort in the gym and spending money on a Coach, I needed to take responsibility for what was going in my mouth ๐Ÿ‘„ even though ๐Ÿ’ฉ stuff was within my macro range!

So hereโ€™s the tough love part as a Coach from me to you:

So friend, take a look at your daily macro plan and ensure that 90% of your dayโ€™s food are whole, nutrient-dense food and of course leave a little room for the yummy treats that do make macro tracking ๐Ÿคฉ fun!
