IIFYM Explained In Under 5 Minutes! OXPerformance 3 5 yearsOXPerformance (4): Hi @Hamb0, Thanks for watching hope you enjoyed it! It's an acronym so not actually a word! I.I.F.Y.M - 'If It Fits Your Macros' No worries!
New to IIFYM and decide to ask here Kievdju 9 5 yearsKievdju (1): @FiremanSi there is one gym from where i live, but it takes 1 hour to get there [only have bikes over here], so i dont think it's effective. I dont do cardio daily, only 3 times a week :) (personally, i dislike cardio). Right now im trying to cut some fat first because of reason (big fatty here), then bulk after i get to reasonable bodyfat. Thanks for the suggestion, appreciate it :)
First week of diet done, whats now? JaakkoKK 17 5 yearsFiremanSi (42408): @NorIda I'm not too proud mate I didn't develope the term it's just the way it's thought in most basic nutrition courses for ways to explain different types of cardio to new clients that come in looking for help. When they initially don't understand TDEE, NEAT is one of he constructs to break down the ways to increase activity... For the same reason that LISS and HIIT have acronyms. It's also not just for the lazy individual as u put it, I...
Avatar Nutrition A_em 20 5 yearsKansas___Boyyyyy (3361): its essentially super basic super cookie cutter coaching that supposedly fluctuates with you as you progress. It's by layne norton so its probably alright for beginners or anyone that wants that spoon fed life.
Gaining weight fast after cut? qtdreams92 15 5 yearsLVjack (2749): What @eknight said, it's all water retention. When you cut out carbs you see an initial drop larger then one might expect and the opposite is true with the re-introduction or carbs. After a week or two you body will adjust. Don't worry about it. @Aleksandra_em Makes a good point too. I personally don't measure but go off of how I look in the mirror.
Breakfast macros kozzletoff 4 5 yearsEat2Trainn247 (2557): @kozzletoff more research is definitely warranted (and is being conducted) in this area, but there seems to be some great promise into some level of significance in terms of optimizing body composition via what Dr. Wilson refers to as "nutrient programming." I am curious to see how this may or may not benefit females as they naturally burn more fat at rest and during exercise than males.
Macros - Eating out kozzletoff 8 6 yearsTamere02 (1474): rarely eat out at restaurants but when I go on nights out and now I will either eat out before or after a drinking+ clubbing session I just leave around 1200-1500 kcals and make sure to hit my fibre target for the day. I'm sure I haven't reached my kcal target doing this but whats one day not hitting the right amount in a week?
Anyone ever do a week off from diet? Jelet 26 6 yearstuco (213): and that's why crash dieting is no advisable.

Intermittent Fasting for Bulking cool7425 1 7 yearscool7425 (1): I've been on an intermittent fasting diet for a while now and love how great it works for cutting. Has anyone here tried it for bulking? If so, how have your results been? For those familiar with the diet, I bumped my daily carbs up by about 75 grams to start gradually gaining muscle, instead of cutting fat. I've lost some definition in my abs, but can't really tell how quickly I'm actually gaining muscle -- if at all. Can anyone who has...
Kali muscle attacking iifym samirsaleh 27 7 yearsMaarten (4299): @eknight yeah me neither, it was just a random thought of mine. I also heard bostin loyd say in his videos that the only things he changes about his diet, is the drugs..

Sugar? faina00 2 7 yearseknight (58109): It shouldn't be an obstacle, but in terms of quality, it's not a "first choice." My last cut, I allotted my carbs for the day and tried to fill them with more substantial foods (breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, fruits, yogurt) but if at the end of the day, I had a ton of carbs left over and needed to consume something easy to meet them, I never hesitated to have a Pepsi or something similar. I just didn't "plan" high sugar...

IIFYM Question DanMmmFood 5 7 yearsbrian12 (9495): @DanMmmFood I eat some bad food EVERY day! Ice cream/brownies/pizza/mac d's - but I fit it perfectly into my macros. 80% nutrient dense healthy food and 20% anything I want. Like the others said, if you not competing and you feel that pushing bodybuilding too far is not fun, then just enjoy your hobby and ball park your food/nutrition. For me, I find tracking and hitting macro's easy and fun - so it's something that easily fits into my...
IIFYM for the win! Corkey 9 7 yearsKRIZTUFF (430): IIFYM is great. But if you don't control what you eat / can't weigh the portions it's going to be pretty hard.. I always plan my meals one day ahead and IIFYM has worked great! Best of luck to you though!

Macro Calculator (Posted by Layne on FB) jonrivs49 5 7 yearsThisisscotty (547): I think if someone was confused about how macros work they might get alittle confused on this calculator.. Cause A. It has 2 different calculators to find your calories.. B. It has like 6 different diets.. I can see several people making a post "Well which one do I choose?" But overall I like how they did it, especially breaking down each meal in macros!

Intermittent Fasting - 3 Weeks Progress GetDeezed 1 8 yearsGetDeezed (4): Intermittent Fasting, 18 hour fast/6 hour feed. 2750 Calories; Fat 25%/Protein 35%/ Carb 45%. Before 195 lbs after 187 lbs.
what you eat KingLeonidasXIV 3 8 yearsbrian12 (9495): @KingLeonidasXIV I hit my calorie/macro's every day with about 75% 'clean' foods, and for the remaining 25% i follow the IIFYM idea. So I may throw in some cream pasta, or for example yesterday I had a few scone with jam and cream... Gotta enjoy your food, but you also got hit your fibre and micronutrient needs - and in order to do that, the majority of your calories/macros should be from healthy sources.

IIFYM diet + advice in generall! YoBrah 7 8 yearsSwoleAnimal (5971): I believe 15 will put you into a slight bulk. 16-17 for strong bulk. I may be wrong as I heard this years ago. But yea its a loose way of calculating..
why is a proper diet important on a bulk? drakula 9 8 yearsThewasp (67): @tamere01 @SwoleAnimal @oceanair answered this question, no need to comment any futher
IIFYM AarronStenner Jump to first page48Jump to last page 8 yearsIrishGymSheep (10554): The phrase is "If it fits your macros" Forgive us all for thinking that "X" means "X" and not something different that we have to research much deeper. Agnostic is a type of atheist, according to the original atheism since agnostics do not believe in God. However in atheism you have those who identify their beliefs as a lack of belief in God and then even further you have those who believe God does not exist....
