Eat so many calories to lose weight! Strange? Know how - IIFYM

Why does the Flexible Dieting macro calculator tell me to eat so many calories?


 

The numbers that the IIFYM macro calculator spits out are based on the numbers you input for your body and energy levels.

Calories Calculator

Most people think these numbers are high for one of two reasons:

1. They really have no idea of how many calories they consume daily because they have never accurately tracked their calories or macros.

2. They are brainwashed and believe that men should eat 1800 and 1200 calories respectively. These numbers are old logic that doctors used in the 1950’s to help the morbidly obese people of that generation lose weight.

When people think of dieting, they think of calorie restriction, they think of starving themselves, and they think about not dieting.

The calories and macros our IIFYM calculator gives you appear to be high, you don’t need to create a 50% caloric deficit to lose weight. 15% is perfect, yet still, people always feel that more is better, so they increase the deficit and do their best to sabotage this simple program.

Hit your macros and stay out of your own way! IIFYM works, but you have to let it!

    Hi, I notice you recommend logging macros using my fitness pal. I am using Spark people at the moment, can I continue to use this site, or does myfitnesspal work better for iifym?

  • Tiffany

    I am just starting and trying to figure my macros, entered my info and got 1529 as aggressive and 1732 as suggested, yet when I go to myfitnesspal its telling me the good ol 1200….are people strictly using myfitnesspal to track the macros and not paying attention to the calories they are suggesting?

    Thanks in advance!

    • Claudia

      If you go online you can adjust the calories and macros within 5% increments just log onto.my fitnespal and choose e the customize button

    • RACHAEL

      IF YOURE IN MY FITNESS PAL IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY GO TO 1200 IF YOU CLICK THAT YOU WANT TO LOSE 2 POUNDS OR MORE A WEEK, WHICH ALSO STATES THAT ITS UNHEALTHY TO LOSE WEIGHT THAT RAPIDLY.
