The Beauty of the Flexible Diet
There are more and more people practicing flexible dieting. After experimenting with so many diets, most people come to accept the fact that some are unsustainable, other too restrictive, while others are plain odd. Therefore, finding something that does not need too much work, works, with what foods are available, and gives you peace of mind is a blessing. Flexible dieting promises to deliver on those fronts. Flexible dieting concerns itself less with where you get your nutrients. It emphasizes on portion control, tracking macros and having a balanced life. Here are those benefits in greater detail.
This diet allows you access to any food. This is something many people will agree with. You will also find more people can apply it in their lives. There are places where the foods that a given diet insists on are not available. There are also those that insist on you eating some expensive foods, which you will not manage to do. Flexible dieting is more lenient on your pocket and options. You only need to make sure you have your micronutrient, protein, and fiber objectives met daily.
There will also be fewer limitations on tour social interactions out there. You can, for instance, eat what everyone else is eating in a restaurant. A more restrictive diet would have meant you do not get to enjoy yourself even in such settings. You do not need to have to go through all that when you are supposed to be enjoying yourself. Once you understand what amounts of each component you need in a day, you can spread it out and thus eat with no worries. You will at the same time have less awkward moments at social gatherings. Imagine having to take out your food container with your healthy meal when everyone else is enjoying something different at a party.
You will also suffer less instances of deprivation. There will be less binging when you finally get to see your favorite foods. Since you can eat your favorite foods as often as you like, you will not lose control every time you are presented with it. You can also understand how so many people find it hard to keep up with a diet that has none of their favorite foods on it. They have to live with so many cravings for what they cannot access. But if they were on the flexible diet, that would not be an issue.
This has also proven to be a working diet. You can track your macros and set it at a deficit or a surplus, as per your needs, and still eat what you like. You can, therefore, gain weight, or shed weight if that is your goal, without being miserable in the process.
