If it fits your macros changed the dieting game for the better, in my opinion! Before this diet clean eating was the only option and if you cheated on your clean diet even a little you felt like shit. I love this diet because it adds variety and you can eat whatever you want, as long as it fits your daily macronutrient requirement. This dieting style allows you to eat your favorite foods everyday if you want as long as the majority of your calories come from clean/ healthier foods. I would recommend at least 75% of your diet contain clean nutritious foods. These food sources should contain: fiber, vitamins/ minerals, complex carbohydrates, lean sources of protein, vegetables, and health fats.
My biggest issue with this style of dieting is trying to avoid binge eating. I am a notorious binge eater and if I get a taste of food I really love it’s a WRAP! Another issue I have with IIFYM is your limited calories range (depends on the individual) only allows you to consume certain foods. If your favorite food is a double bacon cheeseburger and you are dieting on low calories chances are you will not be able to fit it in your macros. You will probably exceed your daily fat calories and there will be no wiggle room for any other foods throughout the day. Shortly after discovering this I decided it is better for me to just pig out on designated cheat days and fit small non addictive treats into my everyday diet. This has worked for me and I love it! Try it out and see if you like it!
