FOOD FREEDOM: quitting macros

food Nazis

Now look, we know we shouldn’t be eating junk food. That doesn’t mean you can never EVER have french fries again. These lists that are demonizing […] Read more…

Figuring out your macros

As a lot of you know, I’ve been heavily leaning towards “IIFYM: If It Fits Your Macros.” AKA flexible dieting as a reasonable, sustainable weight loss method. I’ve posted lots about it already from these posts if you missed them. I’ve had a few questions regarding calculating macros, especially carbs. I’m still learning and experimenting […] Read more…
