Finding the balance of physical and mental health through adventures and fitness

I started following IIFYM in June 2014 with a clean eating focus when I started prepping for my first competition. After competition, I went to a more flexible dieting approach that doesn’t have an emphasis on clean foods rather than balance of what I need to nourish me and what I like. I do still have a veggie/fiber goal I aim for every day.  I honestly don’t know what I would do without flexible dieting. This is a lifestyle. I’m not depriving myself of anything. I can stare at cake and eat it too, if it fits. Here is a list of the things I love to fit my daily diet including my top choices from brands I buy often. I have also included links to a few places I enjoy eating out at so you can check out their nutritional guides. If you want to learn how to guestimate your macro nutrients when eating out check out my post here.

    I have followed you on Instagram for over a year now. Your success is amazing. I have wanted to start doing macros, but always get so overwhelmed with: okay now I know how much of each I am to have, but now what do I actually eat!?! Can you please shed some light on this.

    Thanks
    Renee

      You eat whatever you want as long as it fits. That’s really the premise of if it fits your macros because ultimately if you want pizza or a Poptart you can have it if it fits, but that also means other things won’t fit. The concept is for macro nutrition ratios to be design for your specific body. Most people over think it and believe it’s too good to be true, but I’ve lost almost 30 pounds eating this way paired with lifting and cardio. My boyfriend is currently only macro counting – he hates working out and he’s lose 10 pounds in almost 3 weeks – he also has testosterone on his side.

    Hey! I’ve only recently came across your blog/IG and think what you’ve done is amazing plus very real on what you say! How did you work out your macros? The nutrition is the one area that i struggle – i feel hungry all the time and prone to binge eating so any good work i do can be undone pretty quickly. Desperately need to get my head round that as its making me quite depressed. 😦 Thanks in advance!

    Hey! Have you tried Quest Bars and if so, do you have any recommendations for flavors? Thanks!

    Hi there! Do you recommend getting a “coach” for macro counting and figuring out your macros if you wanna slim down, or do you think that’s something you could do on your own in the beginning and save money?

      I’ve done it on my own and had a coach for when I was competing. If you want to learn, I suggest doing it on your own first. It’s a lot simpler than people believe it to be, but like anything new you need patience and to in the effort to learn.
