I have been approached with the following response to this dieting style:
IIFYM is not good for your health because you are missing out on foods that contain vital micronutrients that you would otherwise acquire through a "clean eating" diet.
Exactly how much micronutrients do you need in your day?
Wouldn't it still be just as effective to take a multivitamin/multimineral to acquire your daily micronutrients if you felt you weren't acquiring an optimal amount?

Eating any vegetables at all, it's INCREDIBLY easy to hit the rda's. Seriously, I'll eat maybe 2 cups of broccoli and a piece of fruit or two and punch it in to a nut. calculator and i'm more than set, no multi needed. Not to mention all the processed food I eat is ridiculously over-fortified for some reason.

Now, on the other hand....I do like me some fro-yo every now and again. ANd I just polished off a kit kat bar after dinner. So.....all things in moderation.
BTW, I just picked up 40 lbs of venison from the butcher......100% organic, grass fed, pure protein. At less than 2 bucks a pound. Cant beat it.
