Everyone wants to look and feel good, right? But not everyone wants to eat like those bodybuilders to get the physique they dream of having. Well, I’m here to tell you that you can have a great fit body and you don’t have to starve yourself or only eat chick and rice 6x per day. I'm not pulling your leg here this can really be done, it does not mean that you don’t have to put in some work to get there. I am going to give you the basics to have some great success with Flexible Dieting, you just have to follow along and do the work.

Let's talk about what I mean when I say Flexible Dieting, I don’t mean you can just go around eating junk food half the day and the rest whole food and hope you lose some body fat. My strategy with this type of dieting for my clients is that they will be consuming roughly 80% from whole foods (or the bro science term “clean food”) and about 20% of whatever you are craving. As long as it fits in your macros! I will go over what macros are later on in this article. So the main focus is getting most of your calories from good quality foods while limiting the processed foods. Eating a "macro" based diet allows you to have flexible food choices when you are out to eat at a restaurant or at a family party.What is nice though is that if you get a craving or have plans to go out for lunch or dinner you can have food from the restaurant and make it fit your macros budget. You have to look at your macros just like your bank account, you have to live within your means. Get your bills paid first and then the money that is left over you can spend on everything else. Just understand that you want to pay these first with whole foods and if you have the room you can fill a craving and go shopping! 

Your macros are how much of your total calories come from protein, fats, and carbohydrates. The amount of calories you can have is calculated based on your age, height, weight, and activity level. Each of these macros has a certain amount of calories that they represent. How many macros you get for each macronutrient is split up into percentages. Here is an example, if your total calorie goal is 1800 calories then 40% can come from carbs, 30% from protein, and 30% from fats. These percentages can be different but this is a basic guideline to start with. In apps like My Fitness Pal, you can set your goals based on these percentages and it will convert that into how many grams per macro you can eat.

Where can you calculate your macros if you don’t have a trainer to do it long hand for you? Well,  Bodybuilding.com and  www.iifym.com  are just two of the many sites you can go to calculate your macros. It will ask you a series of questions such as height, weight, and activity level. From there it generates a gram specific goal for your macronutrients. You can then use this guide to plan out your meals throughout the day. For instance, if your protein goal is 132  and you plan on eating 4 meals, each meal would contain 33g of protein.  Plan your meals accordingly around your work schedule and daily tasks. Some may prefer 6 smaller meals while others may only have time for 4.

Planning out your meal is the best method for success. So prep your meals for the week or day ahead of time so you have no excuse. It's important to have this dedication and consistency because it will improve your results and reflect on your training. At the end of the day, your goal is to improve your health, look, and feel better. This can only be done if you put in the work! If you follow this simple way of dieting you will be able to reach and maintain your results! So get to work, follow your goals, and get to the gym.
