IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros): The Lowdown

 

Over the past few years, the If It Fits Your Macros (IIFYM) technique has taken the bodybuilding world by storm.

To explain it, macros are split into the three main food groups that everything you consume contain: carbs, proteins and fats. As with anything, each food group has its only role to play in your diet and hold different qualities dependant on your goals, body type, training and natural metabolism.

Although there is a lot of non-believers when it comes to IIFYM, I personally, with the backing of my coach, enjoy using this technique and believe it is a much more enjoyable way of dieting, keeping it flexible but 100% in order.

Fitting food into your macros is pretty easy dependant on your goal and lets you get the most out of your food without guesswork. Macros are even clever enough to allow you to add things in like popcorn, bread, jam, sweets etc. into your diet every now and then, which keep you sane.

So, what’s the catch? There isn’t really one. If you’re dieting for something, you’re never going to get away with eating everything in sight. And the same stands for macros.
