What is it?

Flexible Dieting (or If It Fits Your Macros) is a way of eating that allows you to be flexible with the kind of foods you eat. Is does not require you to cut out completely any one food, nor does it define certain foods as “good” and “bad”.

Instead, the idea is that every person has a certain number of Macros (or Macronutrients) that they need to eat in a day. The three main Macros are:

  • Protein
  • Fat
  • Carbohydrates

How many grams of each macro are needed in a day depends on one’s fitness goals (fat loss, weight maintenance, or weight gain/building muscle).
