There are many different ways of calculating your caloric intake and it can all get a little confusing. You can absolutely use macro calculators if you wish, however, you may not have all of the information they are asking for. I am going to show you the simplest way I know how and it’s what I now use for myself and my clients.
Flexible dieting is a concept and has taken the health and fitness industry by storm over the last few years. You may have heard of it being referred to as IIFYM or “If it fits your macros”?
