FITIMPROVE believes in the principles and effectiveness of flexible dieting. In short, the idea behind flexible dieting is that someone can achieve their desired physique by eating what he or she wants as long as it fits within their macronutrients, and is therefore not tied to a certain type of food such as crackers, rice, chicken or broccoli.
In this article we first will talk about the theory of flexible dieting, how it works and how FITIMPROVE applies this in their diets. Then we will talk about the requirements for flexible dieting and how to monitor progress by using a so-called weighttracker.
After you have calculated and written down your macronutrients, you can start with flexible dieting. An important part of this is the ability to actually track your macronutrients. This means that you keep track of how many macronutrients you have consumed daily and how much you have left.
Fortunately, a handy app has been developed for this called MyFitnessPal, which can be downloaded on both IOS and Android devices. With this app, it is possible to scan the barcode of foods and their macronutrients or to enter them yourself and puts them in your ‘diary’. The app then extracts the macronutrients from the imported foods and puts them in a overview.
In addition to this functionality, the MyFitnessPal app offers even more options, which we will be discussed in this article. At the end of this article there will be an instructional video about how you actually use these functionalities.
Supplements can be an important addition to your daily diet. However, nowadays there are dozens, perhaps hundreds of different types of supplements on the market, as a result of which, especially novice, athletes often cannot tell which one can be benficial and which one isn’t. In this article, we will try to clarify this so that you can make the right choice when it comes to choosing supplements.
