ERF Q&A 019: What Is “Flexible Dieting” And How Can You Use It To Lose Fat?

Can you really still eat your favorite foods and lose fat?

Well, kind of.

Flexible Dieting gets a lot of attention.

It is something that CAN be very useful, when done right.

What the hell is it though?

I can tell you what it isn’t, eating whatever you want however much you want whenever the hell you want, and thinking you will still lose fat.

It is NOT an easy way out of dieting/losing fat.

It is simply just a way to enjoy your favorite foods, in moderation, with the base of your diet being nutrient dense, Whole Foods.

How can you do this though without over indulging?

Without just saying F it and eating whatever the hell you want?

This podcast goes over exactly what flexible dieting is, and how you can implement it in YOUR fat loss journey.

Let me know what you think. I love feedback so reach out to me with thoughts, questions, concerns. 

ERF Nutrition Hierarchy Series 3/4 – Calculating Macros For YOUR Goal

Calories are important, but what may be more important to really take control of your goal, whether fat loss or muscle gain, is macros.

You know how many calories you should be eating for your goal, but what makes up those calories?

How much protein, carbs, and fats should you be consuming?

This implement of the hierarchy series goes over exact numbers, percentages, and equations you should be using to set up your macros.

Tracking macros tends to be a more efficient and accurate way of tracking.

Calories can come from many places, but macros HAVE to come from certain places.

If you want to start taking your fitness goals seriously, I would advise to start tracking your macros.

If you want to start tracking your macros AND start taking your fitness goals seriously, I advise you watch/listen to this short bit of information.

ERF 010: Tracking Calories Will Always Lead To Results

Tracking what you do is always going to lead to better results, period.

If you track your weights and consistently increase them, you will get stronger and or bigger muscles.

If you track how much your kid is playing baseball, the more hours they practice, the better they get.

And certainly when you track your m&m’s, you’ll see you’re eating too many calories causing you not to lose weight.

This podcast goes over the utter importance of tracking calories/macros, ways to start, and what it can do for your fitness goals.

I know I harp on this a lot… but I believe it is important.

I have people ask me all the time what to do about nutrition… and I say track calories. 

Some people are like yeah yeah but what foods should I eat? Do I have to cut out bread? Just tell me what to do.

While that is nice and all, that is not how it works in real life.

No quick fixes, no broad fix for every person. Track what you eat, get the data and results, and adjust when necessary.

Give it a listen and let me know what you think!
