Before I get into this dieting business let me make one thing absolutely clear: I LOVE FOOD.
Fad diets like the juice cleanse, teatox, the 7-day diet, and the military diet all tell you when and what you are allowed to eat. To these, I simply say NOPE.
Fad diets are not healthy for you physically or mentally.
Fad diets are time-consuming.
Fad diets often lead to food obsession and therefore eating disorders.
There is a healthy and simpler way to lose those pesky extra mommy pounds, I promise you.
It’s called the flexible diet, more commonly known as: If It Fits Your Macros. And, no you don’t have to be a body builder to use it.
Based on your weight, height, gender, and activity level, you will determine the perfect formula for weight loss, weight maintenance, or weight gain.
Your formula includes the number of grams you need to eat of protein, carbs, and fat in a given day. The principle of this diet: if the numbers fit, you eat it and your body does the rest.
Still not sold? Are you still thinking, “What’s the catch?” No worries, because there isn’t one.
1. With a flexible diet, you aren’t restricting foods
2. You will actually eat MORE on this diet than any other!
3. Believe it or not, you might even get tired of eating sometimes.
4. You’ll reduce those “I’m-starving-I-need-food-or-I’ll-die” binges.
