If it fits your macros?

  1. If it fits your macros?


    Iím currently cutting, trying to get down to 8% bodyfat currently at 13%. Every morning I have a bowl of Frosted Flakes which completely fits into my macros, is it ok to eat something as long it fits into your macros?


  2. Skip the milk and sugar for a shake.

    Depends on your goals. For what youíre trying to achieve (8%), Iíd say itís possible, but I would never recommend or approve that for a client. And it depends on what the rest of your diet is like. Personally, when it comes to weight loss, Iím not a fan of IIFYM.

  4. I like IIFYM when it comes to carb backloading because there's far less potential for damage. I workout in the evening and tend not to eat many carbs all day. But post workout I can fit it any type of carbs from any source and it will not make me fat.

    You're fine. If you are burning more calories than you are consuming, you will get your body fat down. One thing to keep in mind, once your calories are really low, you may want to stick with foods that will fill you up. A serving of frosted flakes is probably 120 cals or so. However, if you are working on 1800, as an example, I would much rather have 120 cals worth of veggies.

    Yep, exactly what I would have said also

  7. If youre trying to get down to 8% in the shortest amount of time possible, IIFYM is not the way to go. Stage the metabolism with clean food and meal frequency. Alter calories/macros as needs be to reduce body fat. Skip Load once a week to help improve the whole process.
