    If he's biased it's because he's been doing it for like 25 years and training some of the top athletes in America, so I guess he just knows what works at this point. He and Layne Norton share pretty much the same views on IIFYM. That term/acronym IIFYM is a bit too sexy sounding though, some people think they can just eat whatever you want, but in reality if you're cutting on like 1,800cals /day you have to meet your protein, fat and fiber needs--then a bit of carbs for energy/glycogen, and that really only leaves you maybe a few hundred calories left. Personally I don't really think about filling up that remaining amount with any desserts or snacks simply because they make me more hungry, I try to eat things like broccoli or greens because they're super low in calories and fill you up longer. When cutting you want to be able to eat as much as possible just to have that feeling of chewing and digesting. If you eat a 500cal piece of pie you'll be super hungry by bed time and it's a real bummer.

    eating less than the body needs = weight loss
    eating at what the body needs = maintenance
    eating more than the body needs = weight gain

    It is really that simple lol
    Yeah pretty much haha... All you gotta remember is to consume about a gram per pound of LBM to spare you muscle wasting when cutting, and consume about 0.5g per pound of LBM for fat so that you can absorb your fat soluble vitamins and for hormonal balance, the remaining calories should come from carbs and are pretty the variable.

    Oh yes; I very over-simplified it. Whilst weight loss will occur at a deficit, playing around with macros will help manage how much LBM is lost (or saved) etc. etc.
