The diet that makes you eat junk food
We’re all familiar with IIFYM in the nutrition world, and love it or loathe it, it’s here to stay.
As a huge proponent of flexible dieting, I’m asked what my view is on certain aspects of IIFYM several times per day, and 9 times out of 10, I end up sending a link to an article, blog or Youtube video to whoever is asking the question, as 99% of the most common issues and queries regarding IIFYM have already been answered somewhere on “teh interwebz.”
And this got me thinking, (dangerous, I know) –
“What if every link, to every decent IIFYM article was in just one place?
What if everything was subdivided into categories, so it was easily accessible for the average person to find?
Wouldn’t that be great?”
And that got me thinking even more. With those cogs going into overdrive, and the little monkey that powers my brain working double time, I decided that I could be the guy to do that.
So here we go, welcome to the Healthy Living Heavy Lifting Ultimate Guide to Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About IIFYM.
Strap yourself in, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
This section is a collection of the comprehensive guides on IIFYM. If you want everything in one go, these are what you need –

As much as having all these amazing articles and videos at your finger tips should be enough for most folks, it’s sometimes nice to have some picture proof to show your bro friends that flexible dieting doesn’t JUST work on paper. There are plenty of shredded guys and girls making it work too.
The purpose of this blog is to help spread the word on IIFYM and flexible dieting, and create the best resource on the web.
I’ll be updating this once every few weeks, so if I’ve missed off an article or video that you think is worthy of a mention (and I’m sure there are many) drop a comment below and I’ll add it in.
