What is Flexible Dieting?

Gone are the days of restriction!

Flexible dieting is way of eating in which allows your to have variety and balance through out your diet.

How does it work?

Your body has a specific number of calories ( energy) it requires on day to day basis to function. If we eat less that this ( calorie deficit) we lose fat. If we eat more than this ( calorie surplus) we put on weight, if we eat equal to it we maintain our weight.

Fat loss is a science.

Your body has a unique set of macronutrients required to achieve your desired goal . Macronutrients refer to protein , fats and carbohydrates.

The Importance Of Macronutrients

We all have requirements that must be met for favourable body composition.

Protein is set  from 1.6 - 2.2g per KG of body weight per pound of body weight.

Fat between 20 - 40% of total energy intake

Carbohydrates will make up the rest.

Protein is required every day to repair cells, preserve and aid muscle growth and muscle maintenance 

Carbs, provide your body with glycogen in turn which gives you energy to train and think

Fats, play an important role in hormone regulation and are essential to optimise your health. 

Once your calories and macronutrient targets have been set, you can start eating towards those intake goals - download the app my fitness pal and get tracking.

Its important to note as well that this doesn't mean you can go ALL IN and just eat processed foods to hit your intake.

You ALWAYS want to eat with your health in mind and ensure you're getting a broad spectrum of micronutrients ( vitamins and minerals) aswell to optimise a healthy body, mind and to avoid running into any nutritional deficiencies.
