What is flexible dieting?

Posted by: Shawn

Flexible dieting is probably not what you think it might be following the name which might suggest eating something different every day. Flexible dieting is following your macronutrient intake to reach your goal weight and not counting calories but rather counting macronutrients of protein, fat and carbohydrates.

For example if you were just counting calories 1 gram of protein would be 4 calories and 1 gram of carbohydrate would be around 6 calories and 1 gram of fat would be 9 calories. This means that if you wanted to eat 2000 calories a day a flexible diet would have 150g Protein, 80g Fat and 170g carbs which will directly affect your body composition rather than just your weight loss or weight gain.

The flexible diet can farther be fine-tuned by following the American Heart Association advice that recommends eating a minimum of 14g fiber for every 1,000 calories consumed. When food goes into your stomach your stomach isn't thinking "is this healthy or unhealthy food?" it simply starts breaking the food down and processing the macronutrients.

All you need to start is the motivation to reach a specific goal weight and a set of scales. The experts on flexible dieting tell us that it works better when you join something like MyFitnessPal which explains for free how to start to measure and weigh your macronutrients.

By simply measuring your macronutrient intake without counting calories and you will start to look at food differently as you start thinking of any food you like to eat as protein, carbs and fat and not just calories. You start to think of food as your body needs and not just as a great taste.

It involves the counting of three main meals a day with two snacks, one taken between breakfast and lunch and the other taken between lunch and dinner. If you want to stop the diet and binge that only gets your system more messed up then you need to try the flexible diet.
