    Lol, honestly I think if it fits your macros is a really bad way to look at things. But I guess it's a good excuse to eat some tasty food ����

    You can eat what you like it all depends how often you eat bad, if you want to look good and feel great, you need to eat good. Just make sure you hit the gym harder after that Friday night takeaway! I have found after working out more I don't want **** food because I am only cheating myself.

    The best time to cheat is around your work outs/lifting days.

    In terms of your short-term physical goals, IIFYM is a great system.

    In terms of long-term internal health and longevity, I think we may be able to reason that pop tarts daily aren't such a great idea, even if you retain a 6-pack in the process.

    To an extent, yes. There are some forgotten elements, though, such as mineral consumption, fiber, etc. that also play into the equation.

    To me, the main thing to take from it is that there is far too much brolore and dogma when it comes to nutrition that if something doesn't fit within the tight box of "proper nutrition," then it's automatically disqualified. For example, I get many, many odd looks when I say that oatmeal is a bad idea because it is nearly universally accepted as a staple for BB'ing.

    I know that I keep picking your brain, but why do you think oatmeal is a bad idea??

    Damn Quakers.


    On that note, I feel like the IIFYM thing should be in moderation. As in eat relatively clean all day, get your protein vitamins minerals fruits veges etc then eat that desert and ice cream. As long as it fits your macros then, I see no reason why there would be a problem. It's pretty obviously that it's not possible to just eat ice cream and maintain gains for an extended period of time. Moderation is key.

    Care to share some more common bb'ing foods that are a bad idea and why they are?
    I for one try to eat "healthy" for the most part, but usually have pizza or some other "junk" the night before an ME session to get some extra cals and bloat.

    Potatoes and non-brown rices. The "brown" part is the bran and germ, which contain the anti-nutrient portion and decrease the pH.

    Sweet potatoes & quinoa

    I respect Rodja a lot, he's a very smart guy but a lot of people use these two carbs with no problems.

    I can tell a difference between stove top oats (what i presume Rodja is mainly referring to) and steel cut oats, the latter being much better. Although, I understand where his points are coming from.

    Try them out for yourself and see how you react.

    He's speaking more from a well-being, nutritionalist point of view. As in, you might not notice any effects of eating brown rice or oats, but lots of things in the body go 'unnoticed' that can still cause harm.

    Those are my main carbs as well. Will have to do some research on this. I would imagine that the steel cut oats are a better option..

    Peanut butters may contain traces of soy and gluten and some people may be intolerant to those. Food intolerances are also very common because people eat the same stuff year after year and their gut health is generally bad. Also, peanuts contain a mold that is a known carcinogen. Don't know if that is what makes people 'allergic', though.

    It makes no sense mate.Junk foods are not good for health.They can't compete with natural diet plan.Only workout is not enough for maintaining health and fitness.You need to improve your diet.The combination of both make difference.You should motivate your friend about it.

    I find that when I'm taking AP and Prime, I don't have to worry so much. I aim for at least 1g of protein/lbs I weigh, make sure I take EVOO in my night protein shake, and just eat in moderation. I honestly am pudgy in the belly, but after 12 days of these products, I am losing it. (I had comparable results in high school)
