So, I figured I would have some fun with this post and take a male and female avatar with a set of macros I made up. If you aren’t a flexible dieter you should be after you read this, because it will hopefully shine some light on how the “diet” gives you more freedom and flexibility. WARNING! I do not recommend eating out every meal, every day. This post will show you that you can still get the results you want when you are in a bind and need a meal on the run, a business lunch, on vacation, you name it as long as you are tracking your macros(protein, fats and carbs).

Here we go:

We have a male, weekend warrior type, bodyweight of 185 who CrossFit’s 5 times per week. The numbers I have prescribed are 2,500 calories, 185 protein, 305 carbs and 60 fat.

Drum roll please….Calories 1472, 39g of fat, 152.25g of carb, 128g of protein. I am a little off, but you get the point right? What I love about flexible dieting is that you don’t have to be the guy/girl who brings their Tupperware to events or DOESN’T EVEN EAT! That is just crazy.

Is eating out all day optimal? Of course not, but this goes to show you that you can find what works for you and get the results you want
