0048 - HOW to GET STARTED with FLEXIBLE DIETING

October 11, 2018

Today's episode is a solo episode all about getting started with counting macros & flexible dieting. 

The premise behind this way of eating is...

Instead of only eating certain 'good' or 'clean' foods and excluding everything else, which can lead to binging and massive weight regain post diet, you eat much of what you like.

You target specific macronutrient (protein, carb, fat) intakes, but your food choices are more flexible.

Personally, I love ice cream. Instead of having a crazy cheat day...when I get a craving, I simply have a single serving, satisfy my craving, and account for it in my macronutrient intake.

No 'cheat' mentality. No binge. No feeling guilty afterward. No impulse to drag myself to the treadmill to do extra cardio for the "bad" foods.

- Do calories matter?
