If it fits your macros Programme (flexible dieting)
What are Macros ?
Macronutrients (Macros) are what are found in a persons’ intake of food. You can find these by looking at the nutritional label on your food packets. the 3 key macros you look for in the nutrition is the Grams in CARBOHYDRATES (carbs), PROTEIN and FATS.
Within this diet, you are given a certain amount macros, depending on your body composition and what your aims are. For example, I am currently on 103 carbs, 42 Fats and 123 protein (1240 calories)
If you really need help on finding your macros, you can try apps like myfitnesspal, or the nutritionist. (what I am using now)
Why I Flexible diet?
If you have read before on my page ‘my life of crazy diets,’ I’ve tried Quite a few diets, and none of them worked for me, partially because I love my food. Flexible dieting basically gives you the means to eat anything as long as it ‘fits your macros.’ for example, 2 brownie bites from Sainsburys, is 20 carbs, 8 fat. At the end of the day I had macros left so I treated myself to brownies. it’s what I call a ‘controlled but cheeky diet’
Indeed I say it allows you to eat anything you wish, but it does make itself healthy too, as you are subjected to a certain amount of macros, you want to find the healthier options of each different type foods, like instead of white bread, you go for brown bread, its less fat. you want to be resourceful and fill your macros with more filling foods.
Some examples of the meals I have.

P.s I love lamb, but its quite high in the fats, so what I do is eat foods with low fats and fill my dinner up with the lamb.
