    IIFYM. If you don't know what this means, GIH.

    IIFYM = If It Fits Your Macros.

    Please redirect your attention to this thread if you don't know what macros are. http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=121703981

    IIFYM. If you're new to the nutrition section of these wonderful forums, you've probably already seen this saying multiple times and may be wondering what it means. Let's further explore it's true meaning.

    The majority of the new (even some of the old) members on these forums see the IIFYM slogan in a number of signatures and don't like it, so they jump to conclusions and turn to their broscience. "You can't eat carbs that late at night, you can't eat junk food and expect to see the same results as someone who has has clean diet, you'll get fat eating ice cream on a daily basis, stop telling people to eat as many brownies as they want, etc."
    The list goes on further than the energizer bunny can walk. Before you jump to conclusions, do everyone a favor and familiarize yourself with the basic knowledge the forum has provided you with in the sticky's. This being said we can now begin our journey.

    First, I'd like to point out that no one in the IIFYM crew is telling you to eat a 4 gallon pail of ice cream, 30 big macs, 50 brownies, 5 large pizza's or any other hyperbole you can think up, because that's just ridiculous and it wouldn't fit your macros. All they are trying to say is it's okay to Indulge in your favorite foods as long as you're putting your macros first. Generally what you may want to do just to get a feel for the diet is hit 80% of your total caloric needs for the day, usually filling your protein and fat requirements first, using the remaining 20% for any food of your choice. Personally I would use a food that contained mostly carbohydrates but it's up to you. Obviously depending on your diet regimen the remaining 20% of your macros may vary. Please note, 80/20 is simply a guideline for beginners. Once you can fully grasp what IIFYM stands for, you can start taking it further. ---> If It Fit Your Macros <--- If you have to read this 1000 times before it sinks in, do so now. Please understand. You can quite literally eat anything you please as long as it fits into your macros. There is no exaggeration here folks, If It Fits Your Macros, eat it.

    Second, I know some of the members in the IIFYM crew may seem a tad cocky and obnoxious at times but believe me when I tell you, 99.9% of the time they're only looking out for your best interests. The way I see it, if you can't indulge in the foods you love, you're just gonna be miserable. By walling off your favorite foods, all you're doing is releasing the parking brake of the Bugatti Veyron that is your will power and thus enabling the inevitable, colossal binge that is the tree at the bottom of the hill you're on. From now on instead of thinking of IIFYM as something that may negatively impact your diet, think of it as as a blessing sent from above, Because let's be real, I know everyone must be tired of eating Chicken breasts and rice by now. =)

    Remember, everything is good “in moderation”

    Until signing up for these forums a few days ago, I had no idea what IIFYM was. In fact I would have trashed anyone who said anything along the basic idea of what IIFYM is. The hype around fitness and even bodybuilding magazines and websites tell us the exact opposite. So it's hard to hear about IIFYM and keep an open mind.

    However, reading what I have read and seeing other's diets and how well they are still doing - along with the common sense that has been laid out - obviously there is a lot to be said about the effectiveness of IIFYM. As long as you put your nutrition first and know what you are consuming, there is room for "cheating" as long as you keep it within your caloric and macro needs.

    Anyway, while most people wouldn't appreciate your input or think it's unnecessary, a few newer members like myself will enjoy it.
    Thanks.

    ^This.

    Enough of these threads.
    The above statement/post does not represent the opinions of anyone in real life. This is the internet. Not real life. Anyone who cannot grasp the difference between the two lacks the basic intelligence necessary for survival and should not be allowed to form opinions.

    IIFYM doesn't seem like the healthiest diet, though. Why not use foods that are nutritious and good for you (olive oil, nuts, fish, vegetables, beans, etc.) and avoid foods that are bad for you (refined sugars, trans fats, etc.)

    Base the majority of your diet around whole foods like the ones you mentioned but just know you don't have to cut out the food you love completely.

    The above statement/post does not represent the opinions of anyone in real life. This is the internet. Not real life. Anyone who cannot grasp the difference between the two lacks the basic intelligence necessary for survival and should not be allowed to form opinions.

    However, reading what I have read and seeing other's diets and how well they are still doing - along with the common sense that has been laid out - obviously there is a lot to be said about the effectiveness of IIFYM. As long as you put your nutrition first and know what you are consuming, there is room for "cheating" as long as you keep it within your caloric and macro needs.

    Anyway, while most people wouldn't appreciate your input or think it's unnecessary, a few newer members like myself will enjoy it.
    Thanks.

    I have joined for a while and never came on to the forum and had no idea what IIFYM was either until this thread. And because I had no idea what IIFYM was, to your left under my profile pic, you will see red.

    So to OP, thank you so much to not just telling me to go do a search, which I did and came up with like a gazillion hits, but your post sums it up, Thanks!!!! If I had any rep, I'd rep ya.

    Why does it have to be only 20%?
    If I can fit burgers and what not in my macros, what does it matter if I'm over it 20%?
    Not saying this from an extreme perspective either... rather basing off what I have to work with at my school with my meal plan.
    I usually eat a pita burger from daphnes everyday, sometimes twice a day, and just random stuff to hit my cals/macros for the day. I'm sure I'm going over the "20%" but what does it matter?
