So if a cup of vegetable oil fits my macros it's ok for me to drink a cup of vegetable oil? And, seriously, I don't know why you keep bringing up pro bodybuilders, most of the people here a.) won't take steroids. b.) can't afford steroids. c.) are already taking steroids and all this eat whatever the **** you want stuff totally applies to them.
There are no macros for that.
But a spoon is fine.
Why do you assume they're on steroids?
It's not eat whatever the **** you want.
There's a carb ceiling, a fat ceiling and a fiber and protein minimum.
If you eat icecream all day you won't be getting a whole lot of fiber or protein.
We just follow the eat more often, and less amount the old "fist" method, ie if the amount of food is bigger than your fist, its too much.
Lots of greens and vegetables, like the Gracie diet pushes, that diet actually works.
Stopped mixing starches/carbs, abdominal gas dropped almost to zero. ie pasta AND bread, either one but not both- at a meal.
Worked for me.
If you lost weight on this kind of diet it could be not because of things like meal frequency, size or even the amount of vegetables you ate.
But because you've simply been eating less calories than you have before you started this diet.
The conditions of IIFYM are macros and total calories.
To fulfill these conditions you will be eating "clean" food most of the time.
The "junk" food itself isn't bad for you. The balance you make between carbs, fat, protein and total calories is what's bad for you.
A typical "junk" food diet would be like 30g protein, 200g carbs and 100g fat and very little fiber.
This doesn't fit IIFYM, to fix this diet would require eliminating most of the fatty high carb food to add more protein and fibrous food.
But you can still have some of the food you like everyday.
The total combination of food for the day is what matters not each and every food by itself.
And if the combination is 80% "clean" and 20% "dirty". (As would be required for a proper IIFYM diet).
The whole combination is "clean".
I hope I'm expressing myself properly.
Oh, ok, so what you're saying is "junk" food really isn't that great and you should stay away from it to stay within a healthy diet? That makes sense.
