The IIFYM Diet: Benefits, Misconceptions, and Strategies

It’s a new year, and with it comes resolutions to eat healthy and lose weight. When people think of the word “diet,” they think restrictions. Diets today are built on the idea that you have to exclude certain foods or macronutrients (protein, fat, or carbohydrates) to achieve optimal health or lose body fat. Each diet contains different “off limit” foods. For example, a paleo diet contains an extensive list of foods that are approved or to be avoided — items like grains, legumes, dairy, sugar, and alcohol.

The past few years have seen a shift away from specific diets and an increased focus on calories and macronutrient goals. This approach to nutrition is known as flexible dieting or “If It Fits Your Macros” (IIFYM) and gives you the chance to enjoy your favorite foods — within reason — instead of excluding them. The basic premise of IIFYM is that you have a target calorie, macronutrient, and fiber goal for the day. Once you’ve calculated your macros, the foods you choose are up to you based on your dietary preference.
