I am new to this term but it seems well worth looking into according to this article I found on healthy eater.com. I had some of this figured out already and I’m sure the same can be said for many of you but I feel this is still well worth the read.
What Are the Benefits?
As I’ve mention before I’ve experimented with a wide range of different diets. All of them have their merits but Flexible Dieting is by far my favorite (and one I continue to follow today).
Below I’ll give three reasons why:
The most important tool in weight loss is understanding that a calorie deficit is necessary for losing weight.
Although quality is still important, quantity is the greater determining factor in weight loss or gain. If you’re not in a calorie deficit you can eat all the “good foods” you want and go nowhere.
By tracking everything that enters your mouth you stop the guess-work and take control over how & when you reach your goals. Tracking, whether it’s your macros or calories, is hands down the most effective way to change your body. (Read about how Jim lost 88 pounds by doing this)
