Once again, I’m not blindly taking this information out of air. Since I was a kid my father and lots of his friends were so called buff and jacked. They been drinking beer with salted fish and had no problem with fast foods or a sweet home made dinner. I know tons of guys who got great results simply by lifting heavy shit and eating tons of donuts, spaghetti and drinking it up with coke or Capri sun, no pun intended. Of course they had low body fat. But cmon', they hated fruits and vegetables, not to mention that pizzas were the main source for their vitamins.
But there is a reason why bros hate on IIFYM, their usual response is (Oh, so IIFYM its an excuse to eat shit). Bros refuse to calm down and think rationally, that for years what they were told was though science, in fact is wrong and they were mislead big time. Coaches simply lose their job if they agree. Since it’s not only a hobby it’s an industry. I've seen tons of retarded plans that people are buying for 40-70$, some even sell those for 200-400$. What the hell, was I using those on my own! Oh boy, it took me some balls to switch my believe system. And even now I see that it is not so easy to learn the actual facts, plus it is time consuming and nobody will pat you on the shoulder; people will hate you pretty hard; cries in the pillow.
But enough of that, let’s see what I got for you.If you wan’t to have micros in check and eat delish. You should plan it from beginning. I know, It sounds hard, but in fact it’s not. Imagine yourself instead of pulling out one chicken breast and one rice pack five times a day followed by cooking ritual. You pull 5x chicken breasts and beef steak, season them, and throw them in the damn oven. Meanwhile it gets cooked in oven, you can steam some rice and cook potatoes. Finish this masterpiece by making yourself a fresh veggie salad which takes max 5 minutes. And of course, as usually you count macros before doing all the cooking. Simple isn't it? Congrats, you have control of your daily food intake, spared time and yourself from mindfuck and worrying. Plus you have most likely spared place for that nice piece of berry pie with cacao. It was just an example, now you will be eating like a real human being.
The one and only minus of this whole thing. Is that you have to be in a good mood either in the morning or in the evening. Cooking is a skill, if you are in a bad mood, most likely you will prepare not so tasty meals. Well, by the end it’s up to you, if you want to spare your time or not. But I strongly recommend counting macros upfront.
So, are there any excuses of not doing prep meal in iifym way? Yes, first you can hire maid to cook for you, seven times a day. Secondly, you do not give a shit about calories and macros aka do you even lift; (DYEL) mode or the best one is being a wizard; it is all up to you.
